Liam Payne Engaged to Model Maya Henry: 'We're Just Really Happy'

From boy band to manhood, Liam blazes his own path with engagment announcement

After rumors ran amok on social media Liam Payne made it clear, he and Maya Henry got engaged. The One Direction singer confirmed the couple’s big news during an interview with Good Morning America.

"Thank you, we're just really happy,” the “For You” singer told GMA. "The last week I've had a birthday, my son has gone to school for the first time today, so it feels like a lot of firsts for me actually, which is great."

Reports indicate the 26 year-old star popped the question with the help of a diamond ring worth 3.9 million. The couple celebrated their big life moment at a London restaurant.

After Liam split with former X-Factor judge Cheryl Cole, he confirmed his relationship with Maya in September 2019. He isn’t too keen on sharing cute couple pics on social media, but she makes up for it. Back in March, Maya posted a pic celebrating Liam’s inclusion on the cover of TINGS Magazine.

Liam also addressed the possibility of 1D reuniting as a man group, rather than boy. "It feels amazing to be doing 10 years of anything really, especially to have the success level we’ve had… As far as reunions go, I don’t know too much but I got wonderful birthday messages from everyone.”

The group celebrated their 10 year anniversary with flashback Instagram posts and candid moments. Liam posted a screenshot of a text he sent on July 23, 2010 to his dad, saying, "I'm in a boy band." He tweeted, "What a journey… I had no idea what we were in for when I sent this text... ten years ago at this exact time the band was formed. Thanks to everyone that’s supported us over the years and thanks to the boys for sharing this with me."
