Liam Payne Gets Engaged To Model Girlfriend Maya Henry
One Direction’s Liam Payne, 26, is engaged to his girlfriend of almost two years, 20-year-old model Maya Henry.
A rep for the couple confirmed their engagement after they were spotted on a date on Thursday night, where Henry sported her new giant diamond ring.
Although Payne is the more recognizable name in the couple, Henry is a successful model and comes from an incredibly wealthy family. She first became famous after her lavish quinceañera went viral. The party featured performances from Pitbull and Nick Jonas, and reportedly cost $6 million. Her family went on to create a reality show on YouTube called Hangin’ With Los Henrys, which ran for one season.
