We're just going to go ahead and say it: Niall Horan is known for being the most unproblematic member of One Direction. Not that any of the 1D guys have ever done anything all that terrible, but our dear Nialler is you know, the more low-key one. He's given us two solo jams so far, he does nothing but talk highly of his bandmates and still makes time to hang out with them whenever he can, he's either playing golf or sitting on his couch watching TV according to his Snapchats so you know, just being the angel he is. naturally, there are some out there who are simply waiting for a bit of a sandal from Niall. Does he have a secret girlfriend? Or perhaps finally got a tattoo? Or has plans to have a baby? We know, a bit of a stretch but two 1D singers are dads now and that is something back in 2012, no one would've ever predicted. Well, Niall was legit flat out asked in a recent interview if fatherhood is on the horizon for him and he set that straight right away.
"I don't have any aspirations to be a father just yet. Some people are different, some people want to do that, but I'm fine with where I am at the moment," he said.
OK, so Niall the dad isn't a role he's quite ready to take on yet. He's happy living life as a single, 23-year-old focusing on his music right now. But that doesn't mean there aren't some special little ones in his life. Niall has a nephew, Theo Horan, who honestly looks so much like his famous uncle. Seriously, take a look at Theo jamming out to "Slow Hands."

ADORABLE. And according to Louis Tomlinson, the fact that Niall is such a doting uncle is why he would trust Niall the most to babysit his son Freddie out of all the 1D boys.
"I'm going to go off what I've seen and I've seen Niall with little Theo quite a lot, which is his brother's baby, so I'm going to go with Niall. Hopefully, he doesn't let me down in this theoretical plan," Louis said.
The fact that Niall is so close to Theo just warms our hearts right up. And Niall is even close with the one and only Freddie Tomlinson too, something Niall briefly spoke about when he opened up to Billboard about his life in Los Angeles.
"I see Louis and [his son] little Freddie all the time. He lives around the corner from me [in Los Angeles]," Niall shared.
So not only does Niall hang out with Louis, but he gets in some quality time with little Freddie too. Plus, Niall has said that although he hasn't met Liam Payne's baby Bear yet, he already has gifts picked out of the newest member of the 1D family.
"I haven't seen the baby yet, and I can't wait. I've got all my presents - I got him little trainers and stuff like that," Niall shared.
THIS IS ALL TOO MUCH CUTENESS. But it proves that one day, he will be a lovely dad, just not right now. Single Niall living his best life is in full swing and babies aren't on his mind just yet, so no he doesn't have a son quite yet. But Niall has plenty of little ones in his life to shower with love anyway so we can just marvel over all this adorableness.
