Niall Horan’s proud dad has opened up about his son’s friendships and relationships (sure to delight Niall), revealing that the 18-year-old has never had a "real girlfriend." Aw bless.
But that is sure to change, as the Irish heartthrob is relishing every moment of being in the hottest boyband in the world – One Direction.
And he’s also got a handsome wingman who is teaching him all there is to know about charming the ladies… step forward Harry Styles.
According to butcher Bobby, his son and Mr Styles are quite the team and have built up a close friendship since joining the group.
He told Heat magazine: “From toddlers to older ladies, Harry knows how to charm them.
“He’s special friends with Niall and has been over here a few times. He’s very good with all ages of people.
“When he was in Dublin, he spoke to people in Irish and he got it right – Niall’s been teaching him for months now.”
And just in case you were ever in any doubt as to how nice a boy Harry is, Niall’s pops continued: “Harry’s a lovely, well-mannered, well-brought-up lad. He behaved himself so well. He always gives you a big hug every time he sees you.”
Bobby also admitted there is a young lady who has caught Niall’s eye, but she’s not one of the famous faces he has met on his travels.
Niall is said to be smitten with a local lass, who “would stand her ground with any of these beautiful celebrities,” according to Bobby.
He told the magazine: “She’s very attractive and they’re close, but I don’t know whether he’s made any advances on her yet.”
