Ever since One Direction went on a hiatus in December of 2015, there’s not a day that’s gone by that fans don’t miss seeing them together, TBH. Since then, there’s been one major question on everyone’s mind. And that is — are Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles and Zayn Malik still friends?

As fans know, the boys have all been pretty busy doing their own things since they decided to take a break. Niall released a solo album called Flicker, and is currently busy working on his second. Harry starred in the movie Dunkirk, dropped his own LP and embarked on a world tour. Louis welcomed a son, Freddie, and is gearing up for his debut album, Walls, to come out on January 31, 2020. Liam also became a father and has been hard at work on his solo music. And Zayn dropped two epic albums over the years!

Well guys, J-14 went ahead and did some investigating, and despite being super busy working on their solo careers, the boys have actually hung out a lot since their split. Most recently, Liam and Harry both performed at Jingle Bell Ball in London on Saturday, December 7, and the “Strip That Down” crooner was spotted in the audience rocking out to some of Harry’s songs! He even took to his Instagram Stories to gush over them, and fans’ hearts were seriously bursting.

“Nice to see you live finally @HarryStyles,” he wrote.

Liam also opened up about their reunion on Sunday Brunch the next day!

“It was really interesting, we hadn’t seen each other for a really long time,” he said. “It was really nice, he’s still the same boy as when I left him which is really sweet, just different with age and whatever else. He’s such a lovely lad.”

Wow, seeing them interact is seriously a dream come true — and this isn’t the first time they have hung out. It turns out, the 1D guys are as close as ever, and we’ve got all the photos to prove it. Phew, everyone can breathe a sigh of relief.
