Niall Horan Is “In Love”

The One Direction Star’s Dad Dishes On His Son’s “Sweetheart”

He may have caught the eye of pop babe Demi Lovato recently – but it seems Niall Horan has been officially snapped up by another!

Just days after lovey-dovey snaps of the One Direction star and Irish school girl Ali McGinley surfaced on Twitter, his Dad Bobby has confirmed his son is taken.

Crushing the hearts of millions of Directioners, the 51-year-old butcher told Heat Magazine,

“There's a local girl that Niall loves. I know he thinks of her as his sweetheart.

“She's very attractive, and they're close, but I don't know whether he's made any advances on her yet.”

While Bobby refused to name the lucky lady, her description appears to match that of 17-year-old Ali, who’s from the singer’s hometown of Mullingar.

“She’s a brunette with big brown eyes and pale skin like Niall’s,” he added.

“She’s from the town, but the other end to us and I always knew Niall has big feelings for her.”
