Alex and Perrie went public with their relationship in 2017.
In an interview published in June 2019, Perrie said he was her perfect partner.
She said: “I’m a little creep sometimes, I’m a little weirdo. And he loves me for that, and that’s why I’m like, ‘Woohoo!’ You know? I don’t have to put on a front and be this perfect girlfriend.
“He’s like, perfection. He’s not too much, he’s not too clingy, but he’s not too cool for school.
“He’s got a perfect balance, he’s super supportive of everything I do, which is so nice.”
She added: “He just wants the best for me, as do I him.
“So it’s just a lovely balanced healthy relationship, and I love it. It’s a breath of fresh air.”
