Who is Liam Payne's fiancée Maya Henry? Singer seals two-year romance with dazzling $4M engagement ring
This year isn’t that bad after all – at least for Liam Payne and his girlfriend Maya Henry. News is that the two are engaged after dating for two years, according to Daily Mail. The report states the 26-year-old, former One Direction member, popped the question to his lady love,20, with a £3 million diamond ring. The model was seen wearing the ring when the couple was out for a romantic meal at London's upscale Novikov on August 27 night.
A source from the restaurant informed Daily Mail that Henry wasn’t shying away from showing the ring while they were there. The engagement news isn’t public yet because, according to the report, it happened during lockdown.
This is a happy and positive development because there were rumors about their split doing the rounds in February. But, a source close to the lovebirds had confirmed to Daily Mail that they were “definitely still a couple and are very happy together” and were taking some time off social media to enjoy some privacy. The source said, “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.”
They didn’t appear in public at all till June when they were spotted at the Black Lives Matter protests in London. They were first linked in August 2018, after Payne’s and singer Cheryl Cole’s split. Cole and Payne have a son three-year-old son Bear.
