Louis Tomlinson And Harry Styles Get Super Soppy As One Direction Celebrate Four Year Anniversary

It’s hard to believe that it’s only been four years since the almighty One Direction formed, with them now being one of the biggest bands in the world, but it’s the boy’s anniversary today, and coincidentally, they’ve done an interview to say that they’re more like a family than friends, with Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson getting especially soppy.

Just when we thought those 1D guys couldn’t get any closer, they’ve now gone all mushy in a new interview, and with the new quotes and the countless ‘1D memories’ messages on Twitter, we’re all feeling rather emotional in the EntertainmentWise office today.

Speaking to Top Of The Pops magazine, ahead of the anniversary, Louis gushed of the band’s closeness: “I think ‘family’ is probably the best way of describing us. It’s different to friendship.”

Niall then added: “Yeah we spend a good time on the road, and obviously it’s so important that we all get along or it won’t work.”

And Harry also made some super cute comments: ”There could have easily been one person who didn’t get along with anyone; who nobody liked, but it wasn’t like that,” the curly haired cutie said.

He then continued: “The relationship that’s grown with these four boys that I didn’t even know three years ago is absolutely insane and it’s incredible. I’m very lucky that I get to spend so much time with them.”

Argh! This is all getting too much. And obviously, the band’s HUGE fanbase have already got the four year anniversary trending this morning, with them speaking out about their fave memories.

One Directioner posted: “They are on top of the world now! No one is ever gonna be better then those 5 boys! #4YearsOfOneDirection” as another shared: “the band who lost the xfactor but won the world”

Another soppy 1D lover said: “IT’S JUST BEEN FOUR YRS I CAN’T BELIEVE IT #4YearsOfOneDirection (sic)”

And Harry’s mum, Anne Twist, even got involved.

She posted: “Mum, I didn’t get through …” in reference to Haz’s phonecall on the X Factor, before she then added, alongside an old newspaper article of the boys: “Kidding!! ….”

Sticking to the “1D family” theme, Anne also attended Louis Tomlinson’s mum, Johannah’s, wedding over the weekend. Too cute!

Obviously noticing the huge fan reaction, Niall added his thoughts this morning: “Wow ! Can’t believe it! 4 years ago today we were out together ! Crazy how time flies but it also feels like it was years and years ago !”

He then added: “I can honestly say, thank you all so much, every one of you, from all over the world! Your support is absolutely incredible. What you have done for us baffles my mind ever day! really appreciate everything ! Thank you , love you! Let’s have more fun now #4YearsOf1D”

Horan also said: “Thank you lads ,we’ve had a great time so far, you are family to me now , not just band mates ! Love you”

STOP! We’re welling up. Here’s to many more years, eh guys?
