NGL, I'm still coming to terms with the fact that a 1D member is soon to be a married man. On Aug. 27, the Daily Mail broke the news of One Direction alum Liam Payne's engagement to Maya Henry, his model girlfriend of more than two years, which Payne later confirmed himself during an appearance on Good Morning America. However, because Liam Payne and Maya Henry's relationship timeline is so mysterious, the news made plenty of 1D fans (myself included) go, "Wait... what?" If you have no idea how Payne and Henry started dating (or didn't even know they were an item before now), then this recap of their relationship history may help.
The singer and the model's love story is pretty classic: boy meets girl at fan meet-and-greet, boy and girl reconnect at a fancy gala three years later, boy buys girl a multi-million dollar engagement ring... Um, on second thought, maybe Payne and Henry's romance isn't all that traditional. But it's still pretty cute (and IMO, it would make a great plot line for a modern-day fairytale). While the low-key couple doesn't divulge too many details about their relationship, here's everything I know about their seemingly serendipitous love story.
