Liam Payne has found happiness once again with new girlfriend Maya Henry.
The One Direction star, who is on excellent terms with his ex Cheryl, is said to introduced his girlfriend to his mum this summer and has made it clear they’re very loved up.
But who is Maya?
Here’s everything you need to know about Liam’s new love...
Maya is a 19-year-old model from Texas who’s modelled for the likes of Vogue Ukraine, Glamour and Elle Romania.
She’s starred in numerous fashion and beauty shoots for huge publications and has a whopping 233k followers on Instagram, where she shares her modelling snaps as well as sun-soaked selfies and pictures with the celebs she's met.
According to Wonderland magazine, she’s planning on becoming a human rights or personal injury lawyer once she finishes university.
Earlier on in 2019, Maya also starred in film Carte Blanche alongside Dylan Sprouse.
The 19 year old launched to fame after her family threw her a multi-million dollar birthday party to celebrate her 15th birthday – a Quinceañera celebration which included performances from Nick Jonas and Pitbull.
After her birthday party became a huge talking point, her family landed their own Kardashian-style reality TV show on YouTube called Hangin’ with Los Henrys.
Maya currently lives in LA with her brother and she spends a lot of time with her family.
Additionally, she runs her own charity which gives school supplies to young people in Texas. Maya started the charity, Maya’s Corner, at eight years old.
Liam and Maya first met when she attended a 1D concert in 2015 and met the boys at a meet and greet.
Last year they were rumoured to be a couple, but reportedly rekindled things earlier this year. It’s not yet known how they came back in contact four years after meeting, when Maya was 15.
Liam is known not to speak publicly about his love life, but he has made it clear he’s smitten with his new girlfriend after they were seen strolling through Mayfair hand-in-hand in August.
He also told his girlfriend she’s “flawless” in an Instagram comment when she shared a sultry modelling snap of herself in a satin dress.
