Maya, who recently met Liam’s mum for the first time, replied under the post: “So proud of you and so glad we can be happy together.”

Liam and Maya first met at a Dolce & Gabbana gala dinner in Tremezzo, Lake Como shortly after his split from Cheryl.

After the party in Italy, the Strip That Down hitmaker was also seen partying with the Instagram star on board a luxury yacht in Cannes, France.

However, it could’ve all been so different for Maya and Liam, as the former One Direction singer admitted that Jennifer Lopez once gave him her number.

He explained that he went to her house to play her some tracks he’d written and produced and the Jenny From The Block singer gave Liam her digits as he left.

“I played her a bunch of different songs. Then there was one song where she started dancing and I was just sat in the chair like, what the hell is wrong with my life?”

He added: “And then when I was leaving, she was like: ‘Oh, just take my number.'”

Earlier this year, ex-girlfriend Cheryl revealed that she still “loves” Liam and revealed he would be in her life “forever”.
