One Direction star Niall Horan is dating a local Irish lass according to his father.
The singer was back in his homeland earlier this month and was spotted out on the town with his cousin and several ladies.
His dad, Bobby, claims he came home for more that just his family and said their was a special girl he wanted to see.
Bobby told Heat magazine: "There's a local girl that Niall loves. I know he thinks of her as his sweetheart.
He added: "She's very attractive, and they're close, but I don't know whether he's made any advances on her yet. I'm not going to embarrass her by giving her name, though."
Bobby said that just because Niall's mystery lady is not a celebrity does not mean she is any less special.
He said: "She would stand her ground with any of these beautiful celebrities.
"She's a brunette with big brown eyes and pale skin like Niall's. She's from the town but the other end to us, and I always knew Niall has big feelings for her."
