Liam seems very happy with his pretty girl
Liam and Sophia looked hot in matching all-black outfits for the event at the O2 Arena, which saw the Brooklyn Nets beat the Atlanta Hawks 127 points to 110.
Hottie Liam showed off his muscular arms in a black T-shirt and jeans, while his other half, 20, went for a chic look in leather trousers and a long-sleeved top.
Liam had earlier worn a smart grey jacket to pose for a smiley photo with Sophia but was clearly feeling a bit hot so chose to strip it off.
Sophia and Liam met at school in Wolverhampton but only got together after the 1D star split from long-term love Danielle Peazer last year.
Some Directioners weren’t happy that Liam had found happiness again when they first hooked up but it seems they’re now starting to come to terms with the idea.
‘They look soo happy together. Liam Payne & sophia smith ,’ Tweeted one.
Another wrote: ‘@Real_Liam_Payne is a lucky duck! Sophia Smith is stunning and her style is amazing! Wouldn’t mind a wonder through her wardrobe!.’
