‘They want to do it sooner rather than later': One Direction’s Zayn Malik to marry Little Mix fiancée Perrie Edwards ‘by Christmas’Tuesday, September 10th, 2013
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.
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.”
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.
I’d like to wish Zayn a very happy birthday! xD Today he turns 20 and wow, time flies by fast. It was only yesterday he was so young when he auditioned for X Factor! So proud of all that he has achieved with the boys! :’D May he have an amazing year and life ahead ;D xx
