And just like Maya, Aliana is an American model and is an ambassador for Fashionnova.
A source said: “Liam and Aliana have been getting to know one another for the last week and she has been bragging about their romance none stop.
“She is head-over-heels for Liam.
“They met through friends and seem to be getting on really well.
“Liam is playing it down however.
“He has only been single for a short amount of time and doesn’t want to rush into anything.
“For now he just wants to enjoy single life.”
Liam recently returned to the London from a trip to the US and Aliana flew back with him.
It was revealed yesterday how he and Maya had called off their engagement.
The pair had briefly split last year but reconciled in the August following a series of low key dates.
Maya lashed out at photographs which emerged of Liam and Aliana yesterday on social media when she was tagged in them.
She wrote underneath the snaps, which appeared on a fan’s account: “I love all of the fans so much but please stop sending me these pictures of my fiancé wrapped around another woman.
“This is not me and it’s hard enough knowing this has happened without seeing it. Enough now.”
Liam asked Maya to marry him in August 2020 after they had been together for a year.
He custom made the ring he gave her, which included a diamond which came from Maya’s grandmother’s ring.
The pair had known each other for years and first met at a One Direction concert when Maya was just 15-years-old.
Liam has a young son, Bear, from his previous relationship with Cheryl Tweedy.
The pair dated for two-and-a-half years before they called it quits in 2018.
