Liam Payne is engaged to his girlfriend of two years, Maya Henry. The One Direction alum proposed to his girlfriend with a diamond ring worth £3 million.
The model was spotted donning the ring while having a date with her now-fiance. They were spotted on Thursday at London’s upscale Novikov. A source said Maya was proudly showing off her ring during their date.
The couple looked stylish together as Maya was wearing a deeply plunging black gown. She paired it with matching strappy heels. The model staved off the chilly night air with a leather jacket while toting a small black handbag.
Liam showed off his sartorial flair in a patterned gold shirt. He left his shirt unbuttoned enough to display his bare chest and gold medallion. The singer paired it with slim-cut black trousers. He completed his look with a pair of brown Chelsea boots.
Liam and Maya’s engagement has been under wraps because the question was popped sometime during the lockdown. The news of their engagement comes after rumors of their breakup which were circulating back in February.
A source close to the couple said at the time that the couple is very much together and are very happy together. The source explained: ‘Maya and Liam are definitely still a couple and are very happy together. Both have been taking time off social media lately and enjoying each other’s company away from the spotlight.’
The couple hadn’t been spotted together for months at a stretch and were only spotted in the summer. Both Liam and Maya joined hands in unity for Black Lives Matter protests in London back in June. They both wore matching black outfits as they walked among the protesters.
“I’ve got nothing to hide”
The pair started dating in August 2018, right after Liam’s split from Cheryl. Liam shares a three-year-old son, Bear with Cheryl. However, the couple goes way back as Maya was a One Direction fan. She had locked eyes with Liam three years earlier at a meet and greet and Maya was 15 at the time.
Liam first opened up about his romance in September 2019 while promoting his single. In an appearance, he said the couple is happy and he is past the point of being bothered. The singer said, “It’s not worth my happiness; I’d just rather go out and do what I want. I’ve got nothing to hide.”
Liam, later on, made their relationship Instagram official and uploaded a sweet snap of him laughing and hugging Maya. He captioned the picture saying that he does not recognize this happy guy sometimes and thanks to Maya for bringing him back.
The singer added that it was the amazing week to release and thanks his team for helping him set it up. He added, “Then last but not least this one @maya_henry for always keeping the biggest smile on my face through all the stress and making me realize how perfect my life really is. Love you all let’s stack this sh** up.”
Maya responded saying she is proud of him and she is glad they can be happy together. The couple has kept things low-key as they seem to be inseparable ever since making their relationship public.
Liam opened up about his love life with MTV News back in October. He revealed that a lot of girls in the past had broken his heart but Maya has his back completely. The singer said with love, he did not understand it until it gave him a sting.
The One Direction alum said, “Something really hurt me and it kind of made me appreciate the love and people a lot more, for the longest time, living such an exposed life made dating really hard.” However, he said he has found someone who is his best friend. Talking about Maya, the singer said she is relaxed about everything and someone who’s completely got his back with everything.
