Photographers snapped the pair walking hand-in-hand as they left a night club in London on Saturday, August 31, and boy, did they look happy together. And get this, you guys — according to The Sun, the “Strip that Down” crooner and the 19-year-old model have actually been together for a while now! The outlet reported that the pair wanted to keep their romance a secret until they knew it was the real deal.
“Liam and Maya have been together for several months now. He is besotted and they get on very well,” a source told the British newspaper. “He wanted to wait before they started going public.”
OK, so as bummed as we are that our chances with Liam are officially over, we’ll support anything that makes the 1D heartthrob happy. So who is the lucky lady, you ask? Well, it turns out, Maya is actually a big 1D fan herself! Yep, there’s a picture of her with the boys from a 2015 meet and greet floating around the web, so she’s practically living all of our dreams, TBH.
Liam and Maya were actually photographed spending some time together back in August 2018, but when he was spotted packing on the PDA with model Cairo Dwek a few weeks later, we had all assumed their relationship had fizzled out. Before that, the 26-year-old dated Cheryl Cole for more than two years before splitting in July 2018. They share a son, Bear, together.
“He is close to Cheryl and, out of respect to her, only wanted to go public with a girlfriend when he knew it was right,” the insider continued.
Liam was also linked to Naomi Campbell in early 2019, but it was reported that they broke up in April 2019. After that, rumors started to swirl that he was dating Stella Maxwell, after they posted a super cozy picture together on Instagram.
Well guys, we are seriously so here for this new couple!
