10 Times One Direction Supported Each Other’s Solo Careers

By  | 

We can’t believe it’s been almost two years since One Direction began its ~hiatus~. It has been a very long and lonely two years without the lads… but thankfully the boys having been living up to their promise of solo music. All four guys have released new music and Harry Styles and Niall Horan are even going to be on tour throughout next year!

As excited as we are about seeing each of them branch out, the more successful they become means the chances of them actually reuniting gets smaller and smaller.

Although we dream about all of 1D, including Zayn Malik, coming back together and singing “Story of My Life” on repeat, we know that it will just make us irrationally upset. Instead, we are going to focus our attention on all the awesome things that Harry, Niall, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne have accomplished! Not only are half the guys proud dads now, which is honestly still weird to think about, but they have showed the world that they’re more than just boy band members.

From starring in one of the highest-grossing films of the year to doing a brave live performance just days after a loved one’s death, the guys are showing no signs of slowing down. To say that we are proud of them would be a huge understatement, but we may be more proud of how they have been able to stay friends and support one another from afar. We may not see them together as much anymore, but the boys don’t let that stop them from encouraging and promoting each other’s solo careers. We rounded up all the ‘aww’-worthy moments the guys tweeted out their support for their fellow bandmates, and now we can’t stop smiling! Look for yourself, but be warned that all you’ll want to do for the rest of the day is listen to their whole discography.

1. When Niall really loved Harry’s “Sign of the Times”.

2. When Niall gave Liam some free promotion for “Strip That Down”.

3. When Liam shared how happy he was that they got to do their own thing.

4. When Liam wanted to see Dunkirk just as bad as the rest of us.

5. When Liam gave Niall this adorable shout-out for his first single.

6. When Harry congratulated Niall on “This Town” and signed ‘H’ so we knew it was real.

7. When Louis was proud of Niall’s first solo song.

8. When Louis was really excited about Niall’s new song, “Too Much to Ask”.

9. No, like, Louis really liked it.

10. Sorry, Louis is now Niall’s No. 1 fan. Everyone else can go home.

A far cry from all the times the 1D guys got into fights with each other, right?
