Liam Payne First Met His Fiancé Maya Henry While Performing At Her Quinceañera

The couple got engaged after two years together.

Sorry One Direction fans, it looks like another member of the impossibly good looking boy band is off the market. As Liam Payne is engaged to his girlfriend of two years, Maya Henry, we take a look at the key moments in their relationship.

Despite spending most of their lives in the spotlight, Liam Payne and Maya Henry’s two-year romance has been mostly kept under wraps – but now the celebrity couple are engaged, a representative for Payne has confirmed.

The 20-year-old Henry was seen with a (significantly sized) rock on her left hand while out to dinner in London’s swanky Novikov restaurant in Mayfair on Thursday night, sparking rumours Payne, 26, had popped the all-important question to his model girlfriend. But what do we know about Maya Henry?

It all started with a Quinceañera — the Hispanic tradition that celebrates a person’s coming of age at 15 — in 2016. With special performances from the likes of Pitbull and Nick Jonas, Maya Henry’s lavish 15th birthday celebrations are rumoured to have cost $6million and catapulted her and her wealthy family’s antics into the public eye. A Keeping Up With The Kardashians-style reality mini-series, Hangin’ With Los Henrys, dropped on YouTube in 2017, but was short lived.

The Texas-raised 20-year-old is now a well-known model and actress, having starred in a number of high-profile campaigns, covered countless magazines, and walked the catwalk for the likes of Dolce & Gabbana and Georges Hobeika. She also recently starred in short psychodrama film Carte Blanche alongside Dylan Sprouse as her first foray into the big screen.

While we don’t know the details of the proposal or when the wedding will be, we do know a thing or two about how the celebrity couple came to be. We’ve gathered everything you need to know about Liam Payne and Maya Henry’s relationship.

A picture of a young Maya Henry (second from left) meeting the four remaining members of One Direction surfaces on a Harry Styles’ fan account in September 2015. Whether either Henry or Payne remember their first encounter all those years ago remains to be seen!

Payne’s previous public relationship with Cheryl Cole lasted three years from 2015 to 2018, with the couple calling it quits in July 2018. The artists share a three-year-old son, Bear.

Rumours have Payne linked to various models, including Cairo Dwek after the couple were seen holding hands in Italy, but nothing is confirmed.

The One Direction star and Maya Henry are first reportedly linked in August 2018, but kept the budding romance quiet for nearly a year.

After images surface of him with Henry getting rather close, the "Strip That Down" singer confirms his relationship with the model during an interview on Captial FM’s Breakfast show. "We’re fairly happy at the moment," Payne told Capital Breakfast host Roman Kemp, before explaining that he was done with keeping the relationship a secret from the press. "It’s not worth my happiness; I’d just rather go out and do what I want," he continued. "I’ve got nothing to hide."

Payne confirms the relationship on Instagram with a photo of the couple, crediting Henry for putting "the biggest smile" on his face. Cute!

The lovebirds attend a number of public events together, including Jonathon Ross’ Halloween Party and The Fashion Awards in December 2019.

The couple aren’t seen together in public from December 2019 onwards for a few months and sources told The Sun that the pair had called it quits.

Henry puts to bed any kind of rumour that the couple weren’t living in romantic bliss with a simple Instagram post in support of Payne’s Tings Magazine cover.

Henry is spotted wearing a (huge) diamond on her left ring finger while out to dinner in London’s swanky Novikov restaurant in Mayfair on August 27, 2020, according to the Mail Online. Payne’s reps have confirmed the news to Bustle UK but neither party have made a statement just yet.
