Zayn treats his future mother-in-law

Zayn Malik is very generous with his money.

The One Direction singer, 21 – who’s engaged to Little Mix‘s Perrie Edwards – has reportedly treated his future mother-in-law Debbie to a £250,000 house.

The detached pad is in Dorset, where South Shields-born Perrie, 20, lived with her mum and older brother Jonnie for a while as a child.

Zayn proposed to Perrie last August but they have no plans to get hitched in the near future as they’re both so busy with their bands.

Little Mix started their Salute tour last Friday while 1D will be travelling the world with their Where We Are stadium shows until October.

Pretty Perrie has said that she wants to sort the nuptials out ‘properly’ when she has time and doesn’t want to ‘go into it half-arsed’.

Whenever the couple plan their special day for, it looks like Perrie has found a gentleman in Zayn after he splashed out on Debbie‘s home.

Perrie was going to get the mortgage for her, then Zayn offered to buy it outright,’ a pal tells The Sun.

‘He’s a really nice chap.’
