One Direction star Zayn Malik has broken the hearts of Directioners across the land by declaring his love for girlfriend Perrie Edwards on Twitter.
Malik, who has been dating the Little Mix singer for the past few months, rarely addresses their romance in public, but tweeted a heartfelt message to Edwards on her 19th birthday yesterday (10th July).
The 18-year old posted: "A very special happy birthday to my baby perrie ! :D x mwah love you x."
Back in May, Edwards confirmed that she was dating the 1D star, telling This Morning hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby: "Obviously we are together, and everyone knows that now. I'm really, really happy."
In other related news, Zayn's bandmate Louis Tomlinson is apparently NOT engaged to girlfriend Eleanor Calder.
Speculation was rife online after the model was spotted wearing a band on her ring finger while with Louis at Nice airport, with The Mirror reporting that they had returned from a romantic break to France.
It was also claimed that Tomlinson's sister had tweeted about having Calder as her sister-in-law, fuelling reports further.
However, 1D spokesperson Simon Jones from Hackford Jones PR has since quashed the engagement rumours, tweeting: "@3am Louis and Eleanor are not engaged."
