One Direction star Zayn Malik has reportedly bought a house for his future mother-in-law ahead of his wedding to pop singer Perrie Edwards.

The boyband heart-throb has cemented his relationship with his soon-to-be in-laws by purchasing a home for the Little Mix star's mother Debbie. The property is said to be located in Dorset, England and worth around $400,000 (£250,000).

A source tells Britain's The Sun newspaper, "Perrie was going to get the mortgage for her (Debbie), then Zayn offered to buy it outright. He's a really nice chap."

Malik became engaged to Edwards last summer (13).
