‘They want to do it sooner rather than later’: One Direction’s Zayn Malik to marry Little Mix fiancée Perrie Edwards ‘by Christmas’
They may have only got engaged a matter of weeks ago, but it doesn’t look like Perrie Edwards will have to wait too long before she ties the knot with Zayn Malik.
The pop heartthrob and the Little Mix singer are said to be planning to wed in the next couple of months, as they are ‘dreading’ spending long periods of time apart when Zayn tours Australia alongside his One Direction bandmates Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson.
A source told The Sun newspaper: ‘Ideally, they want to be married for Christmas. They’re dreading the long separation when the band go to Australia and New Zealand early next year.
One Direction’s Zayn Malik Is Engaged to Perrie Edwards!
Take a deep, breath, Directioners, but Zayn Malik is now officially off the market!
The One Direction boy-bander is engaged to girlfriend Perrie Edwards, a rep for the group confirmed to E! News Wednesday, Aug. 21.
Perrie, 20, showed off her impressive three-stone diamond ring at Tuesday’s This Is Us premiere in London. There, the bride-to-be posed on the red carpet with her group, Little Mix, a four-piece girl band formed on the U.K.’s X Factor—similarly to how 1D came together on the show in 2010.
Perrie’s mum, Debbie Duffy, confirmed the exciting news to Real Radio North East’s Gary & Lisa Show on Wednesday, saying, “It’s true. They got engaged on Sunday [Aug. 18] and it was absolutely lovely.”
“He did the traditional asking me and then asking his mum and dad and everything,” she added. “It was fabulous—just lovely.”
Zayn, 20, briefly dated his future wife back in 2011, but they weren’t officially a couple until April 2012. It might be a little while, though, before the twosome actually walk down the aisle.
“I mean, obviously they’ve got so much to do,” Perrie’s mom said. “They’ll wait ’til 2014, 2015…One Direction are doing so much and Little Mix are the same. They’re out of the country most the time doing their promotion for this, that and the other, so it’s just unbelievable. But I think they will eventually get together and set the date.”
Zayn is struggling with the fame
A source connected to the band reveals “there is growing concern among the bosses that Zayn is on the brink at the moment.”
“He feels that the last six months have been his toughest yet in the band,” the insider tells us.
“Even before the cheating scandal, Zayn was steering clear of nights out with his bandmates and sometimes would skip media events. He has been quite low at several points when being away for key family celebrations. But his pals have cheered him up. People forget he is the shyest member.
“Naturally, he likes the adoration and his day job, but he is battling to cope with the pressure which comes with it.”
And when it comes to the job, the insider tells us that Malik finds it hard to keep a good public image.
“Every step 1D makes is scrutinized and judged by the public and media. Their reputation as role models to teens is also weighing heavy on his shoulders as it is not natural for him to be bright, bubbly and smiley twenty-four seven.
“All of the boys to a certain extent feel that things have changed since they became so huge. They used to have fun together wherever they went, but now the novelty has worn off and the reality of 1D being a round the clock job is sinking in.
“The five were urged to calm down publicly by management, and duck away from ‘late night partying’ ‘sleeping with fans’ and ‘out of control drinking.’”
The insider adds that Malik feels he’s ruined the band’s image after news of his alleged dalliance broke.
“Zayn feels that being caught out with Courtney has made the band look bad, and is still worried about how bosses will react in the long run.

Zayn admits Perrie loves his rock ‘n’ roll look
Zayn has been speaking about his body art and has admitted he is becoming a little addicted to hitting the tattoo parlour.
He told Now magazine: “I want to fill my entire arm up to my elbow to start. I’ve got loads of ideas. I draw as well. I’m more addicted to coming up with the ideas of what I can get tattooed rather than the actual tattoo itself.”
Tattoos aren’t to everyone’s taste but it seems Zayn’s girlfriend Perrie Edwards can’t get enough of her boyfriend’s art. He said: “Oh yeah! She [Perrie] likes my tatts.”
“She’s into the whole rock ‘n’ roll look.”
Wonder what Zayn makes of Perrie’s grey hair…
The 1D heartthrob has also revealed that he wanted Perrie to understand what she was getting into before they went public on their romance.
He had watched girls linked to the group suffer abuse via social networking sites and didn’t want the Little Mix lovely to get involved, unless she felt she could handle a relationship in the spotlight.
Zayn said: “I told her [Perrie], ‘This is my job, this is what’s going to happen, stories will come out. Do you still want to be with me?’”
Thankfully she did and the couple seem happier than ever, spending every spare moment they get together. (:
Zayn spends £2 million on new home
Zayn Malik has reportedly splashed out £2 million on a 5-bedroom futuristic home in Hertfordshire.
A team of removal men were spotted moving some of the 19-year-old One Direction singer’s possessions into the property earlier this week.
These included his blue motorcycle and two life-sized models, which bizarrely appeared to be of himself.
One of the heavy mannequins was clad in a leather jacket and trilby hat while the other wore a white suit and one red glove.
Zayn’s new house boasts a number of impressive features, including a wine cellar, underfloor heating, a steam room, jacuzzi and roof deck.
The property’s flat roof, large windows and unusual chrome doors give it a unique space age look.
Zayn will be glad to have somewhere to relax now that he and his 1D band mates are busy promoting their new album Take Me Home.
