It may shock some, but it comes as no surprise to us that is has been confirmed that Zayn Malik is engaged to Perrie Edwards after two years of dating. We speculated that the musical couple would be soon to marry back in April. A rep for boy band One Direction confirmed the news to E! News this week.
The couple, both 20, started dating in 2011 and began discussing the potential of marriage earlier this year. Edwards showed off her stunning three stone engagement ring this week while on the red carpet for the One Direction: This Is Us premier in London.
Both Perrie’s mother and sister were quick to confirm the news to the world.
Perrie’s mom, Debbie Duffy said, “It’s true. They got engaged on Sunday [Aug. 18] and it was absolutely lovely.”
Meanwhile Jonnie Edwards, Perrie’s sister tweeted, “Right. My sister and Zayn ARE Engaged! It’s true! You seen the ring on the finger and all that Jazz! CONGRATS!!!”
The five members from One Direction were on Today! this week and performed. Malik was mostly silent on the topic of his upcoming wedding, but he did add that the couple is “really happy.” We wish this couple all of the happiness in the world!
