Zayn Malik is officially off the market! The member of the biggest boy band, One Direction, confirmed his engagement to Perrie Edwards. He confirmed this in an interview with Capital FM where they were scheduled to talk about the premier of their documentary, ‘This is us’. Surprisingly, this is the first question the reporter asked him; Malik said that they were happy and loving every bit of it. The couple started dating in December 2011 and finally moved in together in February 2013.
Common interestsEdwards is a member of an all- girl group band, The Little Mix, which came together for a British talent show, The X Factor. This was way back in the year 2011 and the group won the competition. Malik as earlier stated is a member of One Direction which is currently the biggest boy band in the UK. The group which was formed by Simon Cowell participated in X Factor in the year 2010 and was placed in third position. At the moment, One Direction is topping the charts and has gained recognition all over the world.
Mother’s ApprovalThe news about the couple’s engagement was sparked by the three stone diamond ring on Perrie’s finger. The fans and reporters had a first glimpse of the diamond ring at the premier of the documentary film, One Direction: This is us. Perries mother, Debby Duffy, officially confirmed the news during an interview at a British Radio Program, The Gary and Lisa Show. She said that Malik had asked her for permission to proceed with the proposal. She further went to say that the couple got engaged on Sunday and that Edwards was completely taken by Zayn whom she described as absolutely gorgeous. Edwards’s mother said that the couple get along and understand each other just fine.
The proposalSo how did the chap propose? Malik chose a rather old fashioned way of proposing to his girlfriend of two years. Debby said that Malik asked her for the daughters hand in marriage then proceeded to ask his parents. Debby said that the proposal was so emotional, lovely and adorable. Malik did propose Perrie when they were alone. It was actually one of the first weekends together since both had been on tours with their respective bands. As Malik proposed, Edward’s band was at the V Festival and she could not wait to break the news to them.
The Inseparable TwoAt the red carpet, Perrie walked in with her band members but she made sure that she sat next to her love during the screening of the film. Later, they were spotted together leaving for the after party. Zayn is so in love with Perrie and demonstrated his affection for her by having her face tattooed on his right arm. Perrie was shocked at first but later came to love and get used to it. Asked about how it feels to be away from her, Zayn said that he could fly 10 planes to come home and be by her side.
