One Direction star Niall Horan's dad: He can cook, iron and wash his clothes - he'll make a wonderful husband
Niall Horan will be a brilliant house husband when he's ready to settle down, according to his father Bobby.
The One Direction singer, 18 - who chose to live with his dad after his parents divorced in 1999 - learnt how to do his own washing, ironing and cooking because Bobby was often out working long hours as a butcher.
'To my mind all kids should be able to do what he can,' says Bobby, 51.
'He's well adapted for where he is now - independent and away from home.
'He'll make someone a wonderful husband.'
Bobby is incredibly proud of how much Niall has achieved since becoming a member of 1D on The X Factor two years ago.
But he reckons his son has long had the star quality required to be in one of the world's biggest boy bands.
'He always dressed himself well and had a nice style about him,' Bobby tells the Sunday Mirror.
'He never left the house without making sure he looked good.'
