Niall Horan spoils his nephew Theo? Find out how Niall has been doing as an Uncle to the family's new baby and how his brother Greg is hoping the baby's christening this weekend won't include a mob of One Direction fans.
Niall Horan may be a pretty laid back silly guy, but there's one thing he takes seriously: being an uncle.
Since he's been on tour with One Direction for so long, he's been missing out on his brother Greg's and sister-in-law Denise's baby, Theo.
Just because he couldn't be there in person, doesn't mean he couldn't spoil Theo, however.
A source told The Sun newspaper (via London Evening Standard): "Niall dotes on Theo and sent gifts home for him while on tour."
The insider added, "He surprised his brother Greg and Denise with a beautiful crib for Theo soon after he was born and loves spoiling him."
Niall just wrapped up the 1D "Take Me Home" tour and is enjoying some downtime--that will include his nephew's christening on Saturday.
Greg is hoping that the One Direction fans will stay at bay for this private event, but we all know how things went with Greg's wedding.
He told the Irish Daily Star, "We're hoping for a low-key christening but we hoped for a low-key wedding and we didn't get that."
Greg added, "Ah, we always welcome the fans to Mullingar, it's nice to see them travelling all the way to get a photograph with Niall, but we would like to keep Theo's christening as private as possible."
Sounds like Niall's got plenty of family time ahead on his time off, as Greg noted, "We don't get Niall home very often and when we do we like to spend as much time as we can with him."
