Niall Horan & Barbara Palvin: What You Need To Know

One Direction’s Niall Horan broke a thousand hearts last night when he was spotted holding hands with his rumoured girlfriend Barbara Palvin for the very first time.

The Irish heartthrob had spent the evening singing his socks off on The X Factor stage with his guitar (swoon), before heading off to the ITV wrap party along with the rest of the 1D boys, Nicole Schzeringer, Sharon Osbourne, Caroline Flack and co, when he was snapped linking fingers with his new lady friend.

Niall was linked to Hungarian Victoria’s Secret model, 20, while he was on tour in the US earlier this year. They were later spotted on a date in Belsize Park, London, watching The Hunger Games: Catching Fire movie.

And now Niall’s invited her to The X Factor bash as his plus-one, they must be getting pretty serious.

But if Barbara was hoping to be invited to Christmas dinner at the Horans this month, she might want to consider making other plans. Niall’s mum Maura told RTE: ‘I don’t think Niall is ready yet for a serious girlfriend. He’s a real happy-go-lucky lad. He wants to enjoy life and isn’t ready to settle into a steady relationship as far as I know just yet.’

Eyes peeled, Directioners.
