Liam Payne Confirms His Engagement to Maya Henry: "We're Just Really Happy"

Put a ring on it! Liam Payne and Maya Henry are engaged, the 26-year-old singer confirmed to Good Morning America. On Sept. 3, the outlet shared a clip of Liam expressing his excitement over the big news, saying, "We're just really happy. Over the last week, I just had a birthday, my son has gone to school for the first time today, so it seems like a lot of firsts for me really, actually, which is great."

Liam's rep first confirmed the news to Us Weekly on Aug. 28 — a day after the "For You" artist and 20-year-old model sparked engagement rumors when Maya was photographed wearing a diamond ring while grabbing dinner with Liam in London.

The couple was first linked in August 2018, but didn't make their romance public until the following summer. They became Instagram official in September 2019 when Liam released his single "Stack It Up" and thanked Maya for "always keeping the biggest smile on my face through all the stress and making me realise how perfect my life really is." The two have also attended red carpet events together, including the Business of Fashion gala dinner in November 2019 and the British Fashion Awards in December 2019. Liam previously dated Cheryl Cole from 2015 to 2018, and they share a 3-year-old son named Bear.
