There has been speculation over the true age of the model which has been said to be both 18 and 19.
Speaking out: Liam Payne, 26, has hit back at claims his girlfriend Maya Henry was just 17 years old when they first started dating (pictured in September 2019)

A twitter user wrote: ‘Every article about Liam’s girlfriend says she’s 19 when she’s actually 18.
‘This is intentional because when fabricating this ridiculous PR campaign for her they said that they’ve been together for a year, which would mean that Liam was dating a 17 y/o. She’s a senior in HS.’
Liam quickly responded to the tweet and insisted it was untrue, writing: ’19 don’t believe everything you read on the internet’.
Part of the confusion is said to have come from Maya’s father throwing her a lavish Quinceañera party worth $6million (£4.68million) to celebrate her fifteenth in 2016, which would make her 18 now.

Liam and Texas native Maya have been inseparable since going public with their relationship in September.
The singer recently spoke out about his turbulent love life with MTV News, revealing that ‘many girls’ broke his heart in the past but Maya ‘completely’ has his back.
‘Honestly with love, I think you don’t really understand it until it gives you that sting, it took a long time for me,’ the singer said.
‘Something really hurt me and it kind of made me appreciate love and people a lot more, for the longest time, living such an exposed life made dating really hard.

‘I’ve found someone who’s genuinely my best friend, she`s just so relaxed about everything and someone who`s completely got your back with everything is just the wildest thing.’
Liam added he hasn’t ‘experienced that before’ which makes it a ‘wonder to watch’.
It comes after Liam admitted his ex girlfriend Cheryl is still one of the most important people in his life, despite their split.
Speaking on Ant Middleton and Liam Payne: Straight Talking, Liam said he didn’t understand Cheryl’s feelings during their romance and admitted becoming a father, aged 23, ‘messed him up’ as he feared he ‘wouldn’t be enough.’

He said of his son Bear, now two: ‘Becoming a dad at such a young age, it’s such a difficult thing.
‘And I think I built fatherhood up so much in my head that it kind of messed me up to start with. I started in a bad place with it.
‘I think it spooked me out early on, and I was just worried I would not be enough to look after the both of them. They’re so important to me — Cheryl as well.
‘She’s one of the most, if not the most, important people in my life. I’m lucky I have someone who understands what I’m going through.’
He continued: ‘The one thing I was missing as a man in the relationship I had, was a level understanding about what she was feeling about stuff.
‘I think I learnt through away being that, while I want to protect her, there’s a big part of her that wants to protect me.’
