A source close to the situation explained:
They're a match made in X Factor heaven!!!
One Direction's Zayn Malik tends to keep silent about his relationship with Little Mix's Perrie Edwards, but the striped-haired dude recently let slip a glorious romantic nugget, saying something SO sweet it's practically giving us a toothache!
When asked about his musical darling, Zayn replied:
"I’m a big believer in the motto, 'Behind every great man there’s a great woman.' And she’s great."
Oh mah goodness, Zayn!!! What a swoon-worthy comment!! That Perrie is quite the lucky lass.
Well he's only human! And we think it's adorable that both pop-group stars found their fame on X Factor. Perhaps Simon Cowell puts sneaky love potions in people's Pepsi cups to ensure a romance connection?!
We wouldn't put it past that sneaky fox!
