Zayn Malik Speaks Out About Engagement To Perrie Edwards!

Zayn Malik has spoken out for the first time since the One Direction hunk popped the question to Perrie Edwards over the weekend, telling a reporter he and his new fiancĂ© are “really happy”.

Speaking to Capital FM, the Best Song Ever singer was congratulated with a bunch of flowers during an interview in which he was asked about the engagement.

“It’s cool, it’s really cool, we’re really happy,” replied a softly spoken Zayn.

Never marked as a man of many words, the reserved star seemed a little shy talking about the news that sent millions of 1D fans in to meltdown when the couple’s plans to wed were confirmed, but actions speak louder girls! Zayn not only bought a beautiful three-stone ring for his love, but the boy’s already marked himself for life with a tattoo of his lady. Now that’s commitment.

Perrie originally sparked rumours on Tuesday night as she stepped out casually flashing a diamond rock on her ring finger at the premiere of One Direction: This Is Us. And although the blonde beauty is yet to spill on her romantic marriage proposal, her family just can’t seem to hide their excitement.

Her brother, Jonnie Edwards, took to Twitter to share Perrie’s news, saying: “Right, My sister and Zayn ARE Engaged! It’s true! You seen the ring on the finger and all that Jazz! Congrats!!”

Mum Debbie also couldn’t contain herself, gushing about her son-in-law-to-be during an interview with Real Radio before the couple had even confirmed the news, saying: “Yes it is, it’s true. They got engaged on Sunday and it was absolutely lovely. And it’s wonderful because Zayn’s absolutely gorgeous and Perrie loves him to pieces and it’s just perfect. They get on so well together and they understand each other so it’s just fabulous.”

Time to start looking for that all important mother-of-the-bride hat, eh Debs!
