Yesterday we saw Perrie Edward's giant diamond ring and had high hopes that One Direction's Zayn Malik popped the question. This morning we can officially confirm that they're really engaged! Whether Directioners are jumping around for joy or sad that Zayn is forever off the market, we're so happy for this adorable couple.
When we spoke to 1D's representive, he exclusively told J-14.com the big news, saying, "Zayn and Perrie are engaged, but any further detail regarding their relationship is private." Although some details are still just between the two lovebirds, Perrie's mom, Debbie, was the first one to let the world know about her daughter's engagement.
In an interview with Real Radio, she said, "Yes it is, it’s true. They got engaged on Sunday and it was absolutely lovely. It’s wonderful because Zayn is absolutely gorgeous. Perrie loves him to pieces and it’s perfect. They get on so well together and understand each other. It’s just fabulous. He did the traditional asking me and then asking his mum and dad.”
Perrie's sister, Jonnie, is also extremely happy for her sister and Zayn, congratulating the two on Twitter.
Right, My sister and Zayn ARE Engaged! It's true! You seen the ring on the finger and all that Jazz! CONGRATS!!! 🎉🎉🎊🎈— Jonnie Edwards (@jonnieedwards) August 21, 2013
As for the proposal, it was extremely romantic. According to The Mirror, "Zayn popped the question over the weekend when they were alone together. It’s one of the first weekends 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.”
