And we're not okay.
Niall tweeted: "So I'm in my house and @CalAurand stayed tonight . He showed me some unseen footage that he has taken over the last 4 years he's been round."
He continued: "There's a particular piece on you guys ... I just wanna say thank you so much . The dedication, the love , the support , the everything."
Niall added: "You guys are incredible . And I really really hope you love our album as much as we love it ..xxxxx."
Are you crying yet? Also? We'd love to snag a peek at that unseen footage!
As for the upcoming break, Niall recently told Digital Spy: "For the first six months I'm planning on not doing much at all. Just sitting around, doing a bit of traveling and playing a bit of golf."
He added: "That's pretty much what my year is going to consist of. I'm sure I'll do a couple of bits in between to keep my head ticking over, but I can't see myself doing much. It'll be a good time for us to sit back and reflect on what we've achieved. As we've gone along we've never really had the chance to do that."
So yeah, we think they're totally deserving of the time off – and can only hope they keep us in the loop a little bit while they're enjoying the rest and relaxation.
