Happy four years of One Direction! Four years ago today, history was made (at least, in the eyes of 1D fans), as Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Zayn Malik first became the boyband that we've all loved over the years. Shout out to Simon Cowell and Nicole Scherzinger, we guess.
While we're waiting for the other guys to sound off, Niall hopped on Twitter to celebrate their anniversary by thanking everyone who made it all possible - the fans.
He tweeted: "Wow ! Can't believe it! 4 years ago today we were out together ! Crazy how time flies but it also feels like it was years and years ago ! I can honestly say, thank you all so much, every one of you, from all over the world! Your support is absolutely incredible."
Nialler added: "What you have done for us baffles my mind ever day! really appreciate everything ! Thank you , love you! Let's have more fun now #4YearsOf1D" Aw, you're very welcome, Niall.
As for his bandmates, Niall posted a throwback pic from when it all began (they're so young!), writing: "Thank you lads ,we've had a great time so far, you are family to me now , not just band mates ! Love you"
UPDATE: Harry and Liam have now tweeted out their thanks. Check 'em out:
Harry: "4 years. Thank you to everyone who is involved in this. I feel so lucky to be part of it. Everyone who has worked with us thank you..Thank you to all of you who have supported us. We couldn't ask for better fans, you are absolutely the best ever. We love you so much .xx"
Liam: "Happy four years everyone can't believe it's been that long thank you so much everybody crazy how things have turned out I love you"
