Get out the party poppers, silly string and balloons because it’s Louis Tomlinson’s birthday.
And it’s not just any yearly celebration, Louis is celebrating his milestone 21st today. It’s not like we would use a One Direction birthday as an excuse to look at pictures and Google amazing facts about them, ahem - Niall.
So we’re going to take this rare opportunity to dedicate a whole story to the legend that is Louis, the oldest member of the world’s biggest boyband.
If you’ve ever heard Louis talk then you’ll know all about his South Yorkshire twang.
He grew up in Doncaster and is actually from the same town as a bunch of other famous people like Jeremy Clarkson, Kevin Keegan and, er, Brian Blessed.
But if you’ve ever heard him sing, you might question the X Factor judges on what they know about vocal ability. Louis didn’t have, um, the strongest audition, let’s just leave it at that.
Each of these lovely pictures have his best quotes, funny facts and various moments of madness.
They're in no particular order and if you needed one last push of encouragement - he's naked in one of the pictures. HONESTLY.
Fancy looking at some pictures on One Direction before they were famous? Of course you do, they're HILARIOUS .
