Maya Henry rocked a gigantic ring on the very same day a report claimed that One Direction’s Liam Payne proposed to the model! Learn more about Maya, who’s also known for her famous Texan family.
Maya Henry is known for her high-profile modeling gigs and relationship with One Direction alum Liam Payne. But the Texan native, who was born in 2000, made headlines at the end of Aug. 2020 when a Daily Mail report claimed that Liam proposed to Maya “during lockdown” with “a dazzling diamond ring that set him back an eye-watering £3million.” Three million pounds is about $3.5 million USD — if true, Liam spent quite a lot on this engagement! HollywoodLife can not independently confirm this report at the time, and we have reached out to Liam’s and Maya’s reps for comment.
The engagement report included photos of Liam and Maya heading out to dinner at a premiere London restaurant, Novikov, on that very same day. While the engagement news has yet to be confirmed, you could definitely see a large, oval-cut ring on Maya’s finger in the photos! Now, learn more about the ring’s wearer, who will be Liam’s first wife if the report is true:
1. Maya has modeled for famous magazines and runways. Maya is represented by Elite Model Management, and has walked for Dolce & Gabbana and George Hobeika’s Paris Fashion Week show. She has also landed on a number of magazine covers for publications like Elle Romania, Harper’s Bazaar Vietnam and Grazia Italia.
2. Liam made his relationship with Maya public in Sept. 2019. Liam confirmed that he was dating the young model in a loving Instagram message, just a little over a year after announcing his split from singer Cheryl Cole. Liam and his ex share a son, Bear, who was born in March of 2017.
3. Maya comes from a well-known Mexican-American family in San Antonio, Texas. She’s the daughter of a respected personal injury lawyer, Thomas J. Henry, and their family’s lives were even featured in a YouTube reality series called Hangin with Los Henrys. However, it looks like the videos on the channel (which has more than 73,000 subscribers) have since been taken down.
4. Nick Jonas and Pitbull performed at Maya’s quinceañera. As the daughter of a famous attorney, Maya could afford the best entertainment at her 15th birthday celebration. The quinceañera cost a whopping $6 million, according to The Dallas Morning News. Maya’s brother, Thomas Henry Jr., was spoiled with a $4 million birthday party when he turned 18 years old!
5. She’s made cameos in a few famous music videos. Maya appeared as the bartendress in the music video for “Old Town Road,” which Lil Nas X — a fellow Texan — released in May of 2019. She also made a cameo in Joe Jonas and DNCE’s 2016 music video for “Kissing Strangers.”
