Freddie Reign Tomlinson and Bear Grey Payne might be the first two official descendants of the One Direction boys since you know, they’re band members Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne‘s sons, but there technically is another 1D baby who came first: The one and only Lux Atkin. That’s right, the little blonde who was able to steal all of the boys’ hearts and basically was living every Directioner’s dream life.
Lux is the daughter of Lou Teasdale, the band’s hairstylist and fab makeup artist in her own right, and it was always evident just how much both Lou and Lux meant to Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam, Louis and yes, Zayn Malik too, since these two spent so much time with the guys. Lux was always such a star among the 1D fam if we say so ourselves.
She was born on September 11, 2011, so most of her early years were spent out on tour with her mom and the band. Since the group’s hiatus, Lou has still worked with both Harry and Louis and was on hand when all of the 1D family reunited for Louis’ X Factor performance in honor of his mom Johannah, plus she’s super close with Louis’ sister Lottie, who is also a makeup artist and studied under Lou. Well, Lux is now 5-years-old and in case you were wondering, she’s still just as big of a 1D fan as the rest of us. She was just hanging out with Lottie and Lottie took to Snapchat to let everyone know that Lux was chilling, jamming out to “Best Song Ever.”
And this isn’t the first time she’s turned to a beloved music video to help her cope with 1D withdrawals. She was jamming out to “Story of My Life” too.

So there we have it. Little Lux isn’t well a baby anymore and she’s old enough to express the same feelings as the rest of the fandom. She misses life with 1D and isn’t afraid to look back on all the good times, via YouTube. She is forever a One Direction queen. Who else would reject a kiss from Harry and it ends up being one of the most adorable moments ever?
A true boss among us. And although her bond with Harry has always been a special one, he isn’t actually her godfather contrary to the popular belief in the 1D fandom.
@CharW1D no soz she loves him a lot but she isnt christened so doesnt have godparents x

But who knows, maybe Lux will be the voice of reason that brings the band back together one day. We can only hope.
