ZAYN Malik has reportedly got engaged to Perrie Edwards.

The One Direction heartthrob and his girlfriend of 18 months have sparked speculation they will marry after the 20-year-old blonde beauty was spotted wearing a lavish diamond ring on her ring finger at the 'One Direction: This Is Us' world premiere in London on Tuesday (20.08.13).

Insiders close to the couple suggest Zayn - who met Little Mix singer Perrie backstage at 'The X Factor' in 2011 - popped the question over the weekend.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "It was so romantic - 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."

Perrie Edwards' mum Debbie has officially confirmed the happy news that her daughter is engaged to Zayn.

She told the Dorset Echo newspaper: "It's official. I'm over the moon. They are really in love."

Debbie said Perrie is thrilled but hadn't wanted to make their engagement official as the  premiere was all about One Direction, which also includes Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan.

She added in a radio interview: "It's wonderful because Zayn is absolutely gorgeous. It's true they got engaged on Sunday and it's absolutely lovely.

"Perrie loves him to pieces and it's perfect. They get on so well together and understand each other. It's just fabulous."

The news comes after the 'Best Song Ever' singer recently had a cartoon of his girlfriend tattooed on his upper right arm earlier this year.

He said of the inking: "It's not a direct portrait but it's all the things that I like about her. She was shocked at first but loves it now. She thinks 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."

Zayn, 20, recently insisted he and Perrie are "stronger than ever" following allegations he cheated on her with Australian waitress Courtney Webb in January.
