Band member Zayn Malik is engaged to Perrie Edwards of the group Little Mix. They're both 20.
Edwards was spotted wearing a diamond ring on Tuesday at One Direction film premiere This Is Us in London.
Edwards' mother, Debbie, confirmed on Wednesday that her daughter and Malik were engaged. She told Real Radio: "It's true. They got engaged on Sunday and it's absolutely lovely."
Columbia Records confirmed in a statement that "Zayn and Perrie are engaged, but any further detail regarding their relationship is private".
Like boy band One Direction, female trio Little Mix formed on British TV talent show The X Factor, winning the competition in 2011. One Direction placed third in 2010, but went on to top charts around the world.
