As if there wasn’t enough excitement on the red carpet at the One Direction film premiere, Little Mix star Perrie Edwards sparked speculation she is engaged to Zayn Malik by wearing a diamond ring on her engagement finger.
The 20-year-old singer arrived with her bandmates looking stunning in an embellished gown by Brazilian designer Patricia Bonaldi — but all eyes were on her new accessory.
The presence of the beautiful band immediately sparked intense speculation on Twitter, with some fans dismissing it as a one-year anniversary present ring from Tiffany.
But, according to some reports, Zayn, 20, actually popped the question at the weekend.
A source confirmed the news to the Mirror. “It was so romantic — Zayn popped the question over the weekend when they were alone together.
“It’s one of the first weekend they’ve spent with each other, as they’ve both been on tours with their bands. He wanted to wait for the perfect moment.
“All her bandmates were at V Festival, and she couldn’t wait to tell them. They’re all really excited for her, as the rest of One Direction are for Zayn.”
The hot young couple originally started dating in December 2011 after meeting on the set of The X Factor. Although their first attempt at a relationship ended after a few weeks, they started dating officially again in April 2012.
Their romance was rocked in January amid reports that Zayn had been unfaithful with a waitress. But he recently described their relationship “stronger than ever” — and even got a cartoon picture of Perrie tattooed on his arm.
“She loved it, she thinks it’s good. It’s a good sign,” he said of the inking.
“She was shocked at first but loves it now. She things I’m crazy, like everyone else does. To be fair, I am a little bit crazy… I’m happy to be labelled the crazy one of the group.”
