Liam Payne has always had an interesting dating life and the One Direction star has now found happiness once again with new girlfriend Maya Henry.
Liam Payne went public with his relationship with Maya Henry in 2019, after reportedly keeping their romance low-key for months.
The One Direction star, who has apparently been asked to move in with ex Cheryl, occasionally shares pictures of his model girlfriend on social media, but their Instagram silence toward the start of 2020 had fans speculating whether they'd split – something they've since shut down.
So who is Liam dating? And who is Maya Henry? Here’s everything you need to know about Liam’s love...
Who is Maya Henry and how old is she?
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 238k 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.
At the start of 2019, Maya also starred in film Carte Blanche alongside Dylan Sprouse.
The 19 year old launched into the spotlight 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.
How did Maya and Liam meet?
Liam and Maya first met when she attended a 1D concert in 2015 and met the boys at a meet and greet.
In 2018 they were rumoured to be a couple, but reportedly rekindled things in summer 2019. It’s not yet known how they came back in contact four years after meeting, when Maya was 15.
What has Liam said about his girlfriend Maya?
Liam is known not to speak publicly about his love life, but he has made it clear he’s smitten with his girlfriend.
In one Instagram post Liam uploaded in September last year, he thanked his girlfriend for 'bringing back this happy guy' as he celebrated the release of 'Stack It Up'.
Alongside a photo of them cuddling on the sofa, Liam wrote: "Sometimes I don’t recognise this happy guy... sure glad you brought him back though. This has been my most amazing release week to date..."
After thanking his tam for their support, Liam added: "Last but not least this one @maya_henry for always keeping the biggest smile on my face through all the stress and making me realise how perfect my life really is, love you all let’s stack this s**t up."
