Niall Horan has a new girlfriend people, and guess what? People are pretty happy about it!

We think it’s safe to say that Niall is very much the quiet lad of the One Direction crew, preferring to lay low and take some real time out following the news of their planned ‘hiatus’ (or split, depending on what you read… we’re leaning more towards 'hiatus' *crossed fingers*).

Zayn has gone on and established himself as a solo artist in his own right (and bagged himself an A-list lady in the form of Gigi Hadid), Liam is enjoying a much publicised relationship with X Factor darling Cheryl, Louis is busy being a new daddy and Harry… well Harry is rubbing thesp shoulders with the likes of Tom Hardy, and chasing the Hollywood dream. Seriously Dunkirk? Pretty darn exciting right?

So Niall has been somewhat shunning the 1D limelight of late, and it appears that he’s now fallen in love - not with a model, but with a student. Albeit a very beautiful student, but a student nonetheless. And well, Niall fans are thrilled for him.

Belgian student Celine Helene Vandycke it seems has certainly captured the Irish lad’s attention, and the new couple were snapped engaging in some serious PDAs over the weekend whilst watching Mumford & Sons at the British Summertime Festival in London’s Hyde Park.

It’s actually pretty sweet no?

And, in a gesture of solidarity for the band’s quietest member, legions of 1D fans took to twitter to give Niall a virtual fistpump/pat on the back – apparently delighted that the 22-year-old is dating a ‘normal’ girl rather than one of the glitterati.

How cute? All we can say is, we wish you all the very best Niall. She's a stunner. Plus, this relationship kind of gives hope for all us normals out there looking to bag a band boy (well, kind of).
