It’s a question that’s been on our minds since we heard about Zerrie’s engagement: ‘how exactly did Zayn propose?’

And now we know! In a soundcheck question and answer session before one of One Direction’s concerts in Sydney last week, Zayn revealed how he popped the question!

The 20 year-old heartthrob said: “So, we were watching a film in the back garden and her mum was there, my mum was there, my two best mates were there. And yeah, she said yeah.”

Awww, how romantic! We wonder what film they were watching, hopefully not a horror!

Zayn proposed to Perrie back in August but it’s not yet known when they’ll actually tie the knot. According to rumours, it could be as early as before Christmas.

We can imagine their schedules are both pretty busy though with One Direction and Little Mix both set to release brand new albums next month.

Perrie recently told Nova FM that she’s not ready to have babies just yet but the pair are obviously completely in love. Who could forget Zayn’s tattoo of Perrie on his right arm?

She obviously means a lot to him and while we’re super jealous, we couldn’t be happier for them.
