A representative from One Direction's record label confirmed news of the engagement to People.

Malik and Edwards, both 20, each got their big break while auditioning on Simon Cowell's "The X Factor."

The couple was spotted Monday at the London premiereof a new documentary about Malik and his group-mates, "One Direction: This Is Us." Edwards sparked speculation of a possible engagement while on the red carpet as she sported a three-stone diamond ring on her left hand.
