Zayn Malik has bought Perrie Edward's mother a house.

The 'Best Song Ever' singer - who got engaged to the Little Mix star last Summer - is reported to have bought the house for his future mother-in-law Debbie when he heard she was planning on moving to Dorset, south west England.

A source told The Sun newspaper: ''Debbie has been saying how she's got a new house. Perrie was going to get the mortgage for her and then Zayn offered to buy it outright.

''She is just moving stuff in now. It costs more than £200,000 and is a new build.''

Perrie's family gushed over Zayn - who she has been dating since 2012 - and are said to be thrilled by the 21-year-old's act of kindness.

The source added: ''He's a really nice chap for buying the house. It's a lovely gesture ahead of their wedding.

''He gets on really well with her family.''

Zayn and his fellow One Direction members - Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne - have become the richest boyband in music history since they were formed on 'The X Factor' in 2010 with their combined fortune reported to stand at approximately £70million.
