One Direction member Zayn Malik is proving that he wants to "live while he’s young," as the 20-year old singer has just asked girlfriend, Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards, to marry him.

Rumors circulated this week after Edwards was sporting what appeared to be an engagement ring at the London premiere of “One Direction: This is Us,” a documentary about the world-famous boy band.

According to “The Hollywood Reporter,” a rep for the stars issued a statement reading, “Zayn and Perrie are engaged, but any further detail regarding their relationship is private.”

Zayn’s bandmate, Liam Payne, tweeted his congratulations to the couple:

While One Direction is incredibly successful in the U.S., when they faced off against Edwards’s girl group on UK’s version of “The X Factor,” rising stars Little Mix took the top spot while the boys landed in third place.

 Little Mix’s debut album peaked at no. 4 on the Billboard 200 earlier this summer, while One Direction returned to the spotlight this month with a new track, “Best Song Ever.”
