Hearts are breaking around the globe today as news spreads that Zayn Malik is engaged.

The One Direction pop star, 20, is getting hitched to 19-year-old Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards. The wedding news follows Edwards's high-wattage appearance at the London premiere of "This Is Us" on Tuesday during which she was wearing a massive three-diamond ring on that finger on the red carpet.

Edwards confirmed the news in this one-word tweet on Wednesday.

Her mother, Debbie Dufty, elaborated a bit to local paper Dorset Echo.

"It's official. I'm over the moon. They are really in love,” she said, noting that her daughter didn't want to make a big deal about the engagement on the red carpet because the movie premiere was supposed to be about Zayn and his bandmates.

Edwards's brother also spoke out about the British couple's engagement.

"Right, My sister and Zayn ARE Engaged! It's true! You seen the ring on the finger and all that Jazz! CONGRATS!!!" Jonnie Edwards tweeted Wednesday morning.

Apparently not all the feedback about the engagement was kind, prompting him to follow up with a second message: "Can I just say to the majority of the #directioners thanks for the support and kind words! I'm sure Zayn will be very happy!"

Malik and Edwards met on the set of the U.K.'s "X Factor" and started dating in late 2011. He recently debuted a new tattoo of his lady love, telling The Sun, "It’s not a direct portrait but it’s all the things I like about her. I didn’t tell her before I had it done and just surprised her with it when I came back from the States one day. She was shocked at first but loves it now. She thinks I’m crazy, like everyone else does."

No word on a wedding date, but it will be a biggie at least as far as interest. After all, Malik will be the first member of One Direction to get hitched.

As for the romantic statuses of his bandmates, Louis Tomlinson has been in a long-term relationship with Eleanor Calder and Liam Payne recently started dating his old friend Sophia Smith. Meanwhile, Niall Horan has been linked to Ellie Goulding (they reportedly shared a kiss at a summer music festival) and Harry Styles is single (at least publicly).

You can watch the stream of Tuesday's "This Is Us" world premiere here. And be sure to check back Monday for the New York premiere LIVE at 5:30 p.m. ET/2:30 p.m. PT on Yahoo! OMG.
