It’s official now!
Liam Payne debut his new girlfriend for the first time on Instagram Friday, the same day as his new single hit airwaves, and he’s getting sappy over their love.
Thanking Republic Records and everyone who helped him create the new tune, “Stack it Up,” the 26-year-old former One Directioner turned focus to his significant other.
Her name is Maya Henry and she’s a model who’s 19 years old.
Payne lovingly thanked Henry for “always keeping the biggest smile on my face through all the stress.”
He also gave her credit for “making me realise how perfect my life really is.”
Payne opened up about their relationship this week after first being spotted holding hands with Henry earlier this month.
Revealing “she’s awesome,” the singer told KISS FM that she’s helped him relax and not get too into his head about the fame.
“It’s kind of got to the point with my life, where I’m like, screw this. It’s not worth my happiness. If someone is going to take a picture, someone is going to do something.” he shared. “The difference is with her, she’s so relaxed that it helps me relax in a situation. It’s been quite nice just going out.”
Payne has reportedly been dating Henry for a few months, but kept it under wraps out of respect for his baby mama, Cheryl Cole.
The singer’s split last year after dodging breakup rumors for months.
They made the announcement on social media and said their main focus was their now two-year-old son, Bear.
Cheryl and I are sad to announce that we are going our separate ways. It's been a tough decision for us to make. 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.

And smokin’ hot!
She’s a festival queen at Coachella!
And a sultry siren in the steam room.
Henry’s cute casual.
And when she’s all glammed up.
