One Direction: Zayn Malik’s fiancé Perrie Edwards looks carefree as she shops with her mum! Wedding shopping ladies?!

We reported recently that there was a controversy brewing over allegations that One Direction singer Zayn Malik had taken part in what was described as a “sexy Skype chat” that culminated in a late-night hotel romp…

However, as we pointed out when we wrote about the drama, there’s zero proof that Zayn was even the “mystery man” who took part in the alleged Skype chat, and even less that he engaged in anything untoward subsequently.

And in pictures on the MailOnline’s website today, which you can see by clicking here, of Zayn’s fiancé Perrie Edwards – who is of course a member of hit X Factor band Little Mix – the tabloid tale evidently hasn’t fazed her as she was spotted looking happy and carefree while she went on a shopping spree with her mum, Debbie Duffy.

Which of course makes us wonder if the ladies were out doing a spot of wedding shopping?

Of the mother-daughter outing, the Mail reports, “She’s known for her girl-next-door looks and effervescent, youthful style, but popstar Perrie Edwards looks like a carbon copy of her mother – who’s twenty years her senior.

“The X Factor singer, who recently became engaged to One Direction’s Zayn Malik, enjoyed an afternoon of retail therapy in central London during the last remaining days of summer, today.”

And apropos of Perrie and Zayn’s wedding, we reported this week that one newspaper had claimed that Perrie may be considering converting to Islam in order to have a Muslim wedding, but as yet, there’s been no further news on that.

But what we do know is that both Perrie and Zayn couldn’t be happier, and we’re overjoyed for them too!

On Twitter, shortly after news that he’d popped the question to Perrie broke, Zayn wrote, “Never been more happy in my life!

“Thank you to everyone that has been so lovely about my engagement to my beautiful fiancé ! Big love z X.”

And Perrie added, “I’ve also never felt so happy! Thank you everyone for being so kind and supportive! Im a lucky girl! xD

“I Love you all! Perrie.”

At the time, of Zayn’s proposal to her daughter, Perrie’s mum told Real Radio North East, “Zayn did the traditional asking me and then asking his mum and dad and everything.

“It was fabulous – just lovely.”

We will of course keep you posted when we hear more about Perrie and Zayn’s wedding plans, but for now, here’s a reminder of a news report about their engagement…
