Liam Payne and Maya Henry sparked engagement rumors after stepping out together and the latter was spotted sporting a huge diamond ring.

Payne and Henry were spotted on Thursday enjoying a meal together at Novikov in London. The One Direction member sported a patterned gold shirt and black pants. Meanwhile, the model wore a plunging black gown with a leather jacket and carried a small black handbag.

Henry paired her get-up with strappy heels. But what many noticed was the sizable diamond ring on her finger. The sighting of the ring on Henry's finger sparked engagement rumors, Entertainment Tonight reported. The outlet has reached out to the couple's rep to confirm the engagement rumors, but no response was given yet.

Meanwhile, Daily Mail claimed that the two are already engaged.

Payne and Henry started dating after his split from Cheryl Cole in 2018, with Liam making the announcement on Twitter.

"Cheryl and I are sad to announce that we are going our separate ways. It's been a tough decision for us to make," he wrote.

"We still have so much love for each other as a family. Bear is our world and we ask that you respect his privacy as we navigate our way through this together."

In an interview with Daily Mail in 2019, Cole spoke about their split and confirmed that they remain amicable as they co-parent their son, Bear.

"There's no animosity whatsoever. We are learning all the time," Cole said.

"And it's good, it's healthy. We're just like any other couple that have gone through this, but we have a few more eyes watching us...just a few."

The celebrity mom added that her son changed her perspective on fame and life in the public eye. The "Fight For This Love" songstress shared that her career used to be the main subject of her life, but that changed when she became a mom to her son with Payne.

In the same interview, Cole said she still believes in love but she’s not in a rush to find a new one after Payne.

"I wouldn't say I've given up on love. I love, love. But I have paused my relationship goals. All is well. I'm just going with the flow, but I have no plans to meet anybody anytime soon,'" Cole said.
