One Direction band member Zayn Malik is to be married to a fellow musician. Twenty year old Malik this week proposed to another 20 year old – Perrie Edwards – of the group Little Mix.
The UK band One Direction premiered its film “This Is US” last Tuesday and Edwards was seen wearing a ring at the premiere in London. The singer’s mother Debbie Edwards has confirmed that the pair did become engaged a week ago.
The band’s label, Columbia Records, has also confirmed that the pair is to be wed, but added that any further detail about their relationship is considered private. Both One Direction and the female trip Little Mix were formed on the British talent programme “The X Factor”. Little Mix won the competition in 2011 while One Direction finished third in 2010.
Despite their runner-up placing, the group has topped music charts around the world. “This IS US” shows some of the pain of the popular boy-band’s mothers who have to buy cardboard cut-outs of their sons because they hardly ever get to see them.
The band have made as much as £640 million in one year alone between album sales and tours since they became famous. The bands five members are aged between 19 and 21.
