A rep for the pair told us: "Zayn and Perrie are engaged, but any further detail regarding their relationship is private."
Perrie's mother Debbie also confirmed reports Zayn had proposed to her daughter during a chat on Real Radio on Wednesday morning (21 August).
Debbie said: "Yes it's true. They got engaged on Sunday and it was absolutely lovely. It's wonderful because Zayn is absolutely gorgeous and Perrie loves him to pieces. It's perfect and they get on so well together and understand each other. It's just fabulous."
She added that Zayn asked permission before proposing.
Listen to Debbie confirming the engagement below:
A source told The Mirror that Zayn had planned his proposal perfectly, saying: "It's one of the first weekends they've spent with each other, as they've both been on tours with their bands. He wanted to wait for the perfect moment."
Perrie sparked the engagement rumours at last night's One Direction movie premiere when she walked the red carpet flashing a huge sparkler on her engagement ring finger.
She arrived at London's Leicester Square with Little Mix band mates Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall. (Fourth member Jesy Nelson stayed at home).
Zayn, meanwhile, walked the red carpet with his 1D colleagues Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne. Thousands of fans descended on Leicester Square to see them with some camping out for as many as three days.
Congrats to Perrie and Zayn!
