Liam Payne happily announces his engagement to Maya Henry

The One Direction alum is officially set to tie the knot with girlfriend Maya Henry. In late August, the singer's rep confirmed the engagement, though the star himself hadn't spoken publicly about it until a remote appearance on Good Morning America. "We're really happy," he said during the interview in response to the well-wishes. "Last week, I've just had a birthday, my son has gone to school for the first time, so it seems like a lot of firsts for me really actually, which is great." Indeed, this marks the first engagement for Payne. He previously dated Cheryl Cole and the two welcomed their first child together in 2017. Meanwhile, the co-anchors also inquired about other special people in the performer’s life – his former One Direction band mates and the recent 10-year anniversary of their formation. "It feels amazing to be doing 10 years of anything, especially to have the success level that we've had," he said.
