One Direction's Zayn Malik is probably on cloud nine following his engagement to Little Mix's Perrie Edwards, but he remained rather tight-lipped when congratulated about it during a recent interview.

Zayn was appearing on Capital FM radio with band mates Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson when he was asked how it felt to be engaged.

"It's cool," he replied. "We're really happy."

Reserved and to the point, then!

Luckily for us, Perrie's mum Debbie was much more willing to chat about the engagement when she called into Real Radio on Wednesday morning (21 August).

Debbie revealed the proposal came at the weekend and that Zayn had asked her permission before getting down on one knee.

She said: "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."

The engagement was confirmed after Perrie was spotted sporting a whopping diamond on her engagement finger while walking the red carpet at the One Direction movie premiere on Tuesday night (20 August).

A rep for the pair told us: "Zayn and Perrie are engaged, but any further detail regarding their relationship is private."

A gorgeous boyband fiancé and a beautiful ring? Lucky, lucky Perrie!
