Be still our hearts, this is the One Direction update the world has been waiting more than year for. And no, we're not talking about the band officially getting back together. (They're still in full-on hiatus mode, so no change there.) But we're referring to the fact that Niall has finally confirmed he has not only met but totally bonded with the first ever 1D baby, Louis' son the one and only Freddie Reign Tomlinson. Imagine this trio hanging out, Louis and Niall playing the guitar for the little lad in-between playing some soccer and golf naturally. CAN YOU HEAR OUR SOBS?
In Niall's riveting new interview with Billboard, the "Slow Hands" crooner just casually mentioned that he and Tommo hang out a ton and yes, he adores Freddie.
"I see Louis and [his son] little Freddie all the time. He lives around the corner from me [in Los Angeles]," Niall shared.
Umm, okay Niall let us back up for a second. You can't just drop this on us like that not expect everyone to freak out, since there isn't any public photo proof out there of this. Where is the Niall, Freddie and Louis selfie the world desperately needs? But we're sure Niall is just being respectful of both Louis and Freddie's mom Briana Jungwirth and is refraining from sharing any personal moments. So we forgive you, Niall. In June of 2016, Niall admitted he still hadn't had the chance to properly meet Freddie, but that has obviously changed, so between last summer and now, they've clearly gotten to know one another. And remember when Niall was so proud to see Louis and Freddie were actually strumming the guitar together? Uncle Niall is in full swing, how precious.
But what about Liam's baby son, Bear Grey Payne? Niall confessed he hasn't had a chance to meet Bear simply because Liam and Niall are on crazy busy schedules right now so they they haven't been in the same place at the same time. He did already buy some gifts for the little guy though, so we'll just leave you with the image of Niall shopping for baby presents in your mind.
