Liam Payne has spoken about his engagement for the first time saying that he and his new fiancée are blissfully "happy".

The news that the former One Direction star and his partner Maya Henry had become betrothed broke last week and during an appearance on 'Good Morning America' on Thursday (27.09.20) Liam revealed that his girlfriend saying "yes" to his proposal had been part of a wonderful few days in his life.

After being congratulated on his news, he said: "We're just really happy,.

"I mean, in the last week, I've just had a birthday, my son has gone to school for the first time today, so it seems like a lot of firsts for me, really, actually, which is great."

Liam, 27, shares three-year-old son Bear with his former partner Cheryl, whom he split from in July 2018.

It was confirmed that the 'For You' hitmaker had popped the question to Maya, 20, last week after the brunette beauty was spotted wearing a diamond ring on her left hand after having dinner with Liam at Novikov Restaurant & Bar in London.
