Niall Horan's father says he "loves" a local girl back in Ireland

One Direction's Niall Horan is besotted with a local girl from his hometown, according to his father.

The heartthrob's dad, Bobby, reportedly told Heat magazine that there's a "very attractive" female back in Ireland that caught Horan's attention a while ago and he believes he "loves" her:

"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. I’m not going to embarrass her by giving her name, though."

Of the mystery brunette, 51-year-old Bobby added: "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."

He also spoke about Horan's past relationships and explained that because he went to an all boys' school he never really brought girls home so is probably making up for lost time now:

"He never really brought girls home. He had some girls that were friends and they would all sit on the wall outside together, but that was all. He’s never had a real girlfriend… He went to an all-boys’ school so it was hard to meet girls, but that’s certainly changed now."
