Liam Payne has been spotted holding hands with his new girlfriend, Maya Henry.

Liam Payne has gone public with his new girlfriend, Maya Henry, after reportedly keeping it a secret for months, to avoid upsetting his ex-girlfriend, Cheryl.

According to reports, the couple are 'smitten' and he's even introduced her to his mum!

"Liam was really keen for Maya and his mum to get on and was leading the conversation throughout their meal," said a source.

They added: "Introducing her to his mum shows how much he thinks of her."

Liam, who shares a son with Cheryl, reportedly kept his new relationship quiet 'out of respect' for his ex.

A source told a tabloid: “He is close to Cheryl and, out of respect to her, only wanted to go public with a girlfriend when he knew it was right.”

The 19-year-old American model briefly dated the One Direction star last year, before it quickly fizzled out.

The couple first met in 2015, when Maya was lucky enough to attend a 1D meet and greet.

They allegedly first dated just weeks after his long-term relationship ended with Cheryl.

At the time, Liam was in no rush to get into another relationship as 'above all else obviously his main priority is Bear'.

He has been taking it slow this time around with the model, waiting months before making it public knowledge.

The pair enjoyed a secret date night at exclusive Bulgari hotel last week to celebrate the singer's 26th birthday.

Liam reportedly enjoyed dates with models Naomi Campbell and Duckie Thot earlier this year before making things official with Maya.

We think they make a gorgeous couple!
