Poor Niall Horan! The One Direction singer was mobbed by fans at his nephew's christening over the weekend, despite a tweet that asked for Directioner's respect. Turns out Niall Horan's return to Ireland for his nephew's christening wasn't all that much of a private family affair.
Despite Niall's request for fans to be respectful, a mob of Directioners turned out to catch a glimpse on the 1D singer.
He tweeted earlier in the day, "Haven't seen my family in 4 months! Would be soo grateful if I could spend some quality time with them! Appreciate your respect !"
Niall, the newly crowned godfather of nephew Theo, grinned through the annoyance of the crowd of people, though he reportedly refused to stop and sign autographs.
Good for him...there's no reason why a mob of fans needed to bother his family on this special day.
We feel bad for the guys when they don't get the privacy they deserve, but Niall was gracious about the whole situation.
