Liam was recently spotted holding hands with a 'mystery girl' and now he’s confirmed he is seeing Sophia Smith after reports that he flew her to LA to see a One Direction concert.

The pair went to school together and Liam confirmed to Yahoo OMG! that she is, in fact, his girlfriend.

When asked who was the flirtiest of the boys Louis responded, "I'm not because I've got a girlfriend," with Liam adding "and me". He continued: "Yep it's new", and when quizzed over her replied "Yes, yes I do. she's sitting right over there. It's not been long."

A friend of Liam’s told the Daily Mirror: "Liam has really fallen for her. It’s getting very serious, very fast."

Nothing like a whirlwind romance with a One Directioner, props to Sophia for locking him down!
