The couple were first linked together in Aug. 2018, shortly after the 26-year-old Liam broke up with the 37-year-old Cheryl Tweedy. He shares a three-year-old son with Cheryl.

The pictures that were released saw the couple enjoying dinner at the Novikov restaurant, and Liam wore a proud look on his face.

The singer was all dressed up in an impressive mustard silk shirt on top of black trousers and wore his hair in curls. His partner, Maya, was seen in a black dress walking next to him with a leather jacket on her shoulders.

Liam is said to have proposed to Maya with a diamond ring worth $3.9 million, and the 20-year-old was even seen wearing that ring at their romantic dinner in London.

It has been reported that they first met when Maya was a One Direction fan. She first met him at a meet-and-greet event when she was 15 years old.

Their relationship of two years wasn’t quite official, and Liam being a new dad, took things quite slowly until September last year when he first appeared to have defended his presence with her. He opened up to Capital FM’s Roman Kemp and said: "We’re fairly happy at the moment.

"I’m just past the point of where I’m bothered or not.

"It’s not worth my happiness; I’d just rather go out and do what I want. I’ve got nothing to hide."

Making things official

He made the relationship official the same month after sharing a sweet snap of him laughing together with Maya.

"Sometimes I don’t recognise this happy guy… Sure glad you brought him back though,” read the caption of the picture.

They had done a decent job keeping the large bit of their relationship low key despite being public with the fact that the romance had been brewing.

Even Maya hasn't been shy of opening up about her boyfriend and shared snaps of him online on her social media.

They had done a decent job keeping the large bit of their relationship low key despite being public with the fact that the romance had been brewing.

However, it was also revealed in February that the couple had split — a source had said that time to The Sun that they have decided “to go their separate ways but he isn’t moping and wants to put it behind him.”

"He has been telling people he is single and is looking to the future,” the source said.

The reconciliation took place soon after. The following month, they were spotted out in the summer and they even attended a Black Lives Matter protest together.

OK! wishes the newly engaged couple a happy ever after as they cruise through their relationship and take it to the next stage.
