Niall Horan “spoils” Marvin and Rochelle Humes’ daughter with designer clothes.
The One Direction hunk is close friends with the couple and dotes on their 20-month-old little girl Alaia-Mai and can’t resist splashing out on expensive gifts for her.
Marvin said: “Niall spoils her rotten. He bought her a Burberry mac for her christening present and then this Christmas he just went nuts in Selfridges and bought her a load of designer clothes.”
Though Marvin enjoys doing “lads stuff” with the ‘Steal My Girl’ singer, he says his pal enjoys hanging out with Rochelle just as much.
He said: “He’s friends with both of us, so I’ll do lads stuff with him - like I went to Vegas for his 21st and we had a lads’ holiday out there for that - and then he’ll come round to the house and just chill with Rochelle and have a curry if I’m out working.”
While the couple are protective of their friend, Marvin insists they don’t vet his potential girlfriends but he thinks being single is the right thing for the star at the moment.
He told heat magazine: “He’s not silly. He’s seen a lot of the world now and I think he can make a good judgement.
’'I think he’s doing the right thing being single right now. He’ll settle down with the right person at the right time, I’m sure.”
“Band members have a special bond. A great bond is more than just some people working together. It’s like a highly specialized army unit, or a winning sports team. A unique combination of elements that becomes stronger together than apart”
From the bottom of the stairs to the top of the world
“Do you think if one of us wasn’t in the band we would be this big?”“No”“No absolutely not”“I think we balance each other out”“I think when we look back nothing will ever be this big”“But isn’t that scary? the best times of your life are now”“It’s like a Benjamin button thing that we get to do it backwards? we get to do this and after have a proper normal life with a wife and kids”“What’s mad is we won’t be doing this”“Yeah”
“So do you think like we’re still going to be mates”
“I think so”
“I think we will”
“Do you want my email now or later?”
“I think we’ve gone through too much together”“We’ll always be a part of each other like growing up and i’m just glad we did it from the start how we wanted to”“There are so many bands that come and gone i would like to be remembered to for the records we did”“You know what it will be nice to be remembered even a mother telling a daughter the boy band at my time one direction just had fun they were just normal guys but terrible terrible dancers”
