Edwards’ mother, Debbie Duffy, confirmed the news on the UK’s Real Radio. She gushes over the engagement by saying, "Yes, it is. It's true. They got engaged on Sunday and it was absolutely lovely. It's wonderful because Zayn is absolutely gorgeous and Perrie loves him to pieces, so it's just perfect. They just get on so well together and they understand each other, so it's just fabulous."
A spokesman added, "Zayn and Perrie are engaged, but any further detail regarding their relationship is private."
Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards walked the red carpet on Tuesday for the "One Direction: This Is Us" movie premiere. Edwards was photographed wearing her new three-stone engagement ring.
