She’s recently made headline news in the gossip columns as the confirmed love interest of former One Direction band member Liam Payne. This has given her public image a definite boost, as Liam has a huge number of fans who follow his every movement. They also want to know more about what he’s been up to these days, and this includes his girlfriend, so here are 10 things you didn’t know about Maya Henry.
1. She has an exciting modeling career
Even prior to hooking up with Liam Payne, Maya Henry was accumulating her own following of fans. She’s a professional model at the age of 19. Maya has appeared in several big fashion magazines including Elle Romania, Glamour, and Vogue Ukraine. She’s done a lot of beauty and fashion shots for these publications and she’s signed in contracts with several modeling agencies. We’d say she has a successful career going for herself.
2. She has a big fan base on social media
Maya Henry has an Instagram account. On her account, she has posted several photos from her modeling gigs. She has also posted pictures of herself with several famous celebrities that she’s met along the way. We saw that she has a total of 166,000 followers on Instagram.
3. Her family spent millions on a birthday party
When Maya Henry turned 15 years old, her family went all out to throw an extravaganza of a party for her. In fact, the multi-million dollar Quinceanera featured Pitbull and Nick Jonas for the entertainment and it cost them several million dollars when all was said and done. It became the talk of the town, and it gained young Maya a lot of attention.
4. She cares about others and is a generous person
Maya started a charity when she was only 8 years old. When she discovered that there were other young people in Texas who didn’t have enough school supplies because their families could not afford to buy them, she did something about it. She started a charity that was called Maya’s Corner. The runs the charity and we think that it shows that Maya is a very kind, thoughtful and generous person who likes to help others.
5. Her boyfriend has a 2-year old
Maya’s boyfriend, Liam Payne was previously in a relationship before the two became a couple. He was with Cheryl Cole and the relationship lasted from 2015 through 2018. The relationship didn’t work out and they split, but it did produce a child. Payne and Cole have a two-year-old son together, and Payne announced that they still have a great deal of family love for one another.
6. Maya’s dad is a famous lawyer
Maya Henry was raised in an affluent family from San Antonio, Texas. Her father is a personal injury lawyer named Thomas J. Henry. He’s well-known for his work and the family is actually quite rich. They’re so wealthy that it didn’t hurt them a bit to drop $6 million on her 15th birthday party. We also learned that because of her father’s status in the community that the family has regularly been the topic of local gossip columns, so Maya is used to seeing her name along with other family members in print. This should make it a little less overwhelming to be in the public eye now that she’s dating Liam.
7. Maya was popular before her 15th birthday party
Maya Henry has been in the public eye for some time and it didn’t just start with the big blowout birthday party she had.

It seems that Maya knew a lot of important people from the time that she was very young. She’s a socialite from Houston, Texas.

We recently learned that she is in the official music video for singer Billy Ray Cyrus’ hit “Old Town Road.” It’s a collaboration between Cyrus and Lil NasX.
