Malik and Edwards got engaged back in August 2013 after dating for over a year. Malik proposed with a striking three-stone diamond ring, which Edwards first publicly displayed when she walked the red carpet with Malik at the London premiere of One Direction's documentary This Is Us.

While Malik and Edwards were finding the time to spark up some romance, his old bandmates were busy playing live as part of their On the Road Again tour, which has continued in spite Malik's absence.
