If our ode to Liam Payne's crotch wasn't enough to make his birthday a particularly special day, all sorts of celebs have taken to Twitter to wish the king of all things sensible many happy returns now he's hit the big 19.

Birthday cards are lovely and all but lets be honest, nobody can remember postal addresses except for our nan, so it's probably best that Twitter now exists for celebs to write loving birthday messages to each other from opposite sides of the world.

Plus that way we all get to have a good nosy without having to resort to trying to sweet talk the postman.

Anyway, kicking off the birthday messages were Liam's bandmates, Louis and Niall, who took to Twitter to wish Daddy Directioner well.

"Happy birthday to @Real_Liam_Payne , the big fella is 19! #upthelads ! Love ya bro," Niall said.

"Massive happy birthday to @Real_Liam_Payne . Big love man," Luigi added. Probably before whipping a big bunch of flowers out of his manbag.

The other 1D lads may have stuck to more traditional methods (by which we mean prank calling him and pretending to be Mexian birthday bandits), but the birthday messages didn't end there.

The divine Josh Devine was straight in there too, saying: "Happy birthday to my brother from another mother @Real_Liam_Payne. Hope you have a great day mate, catching me up!! Haha. X "

Olly Murs was next, saying: "Happy birthday @Real_Liam_Payne !! Top lad!! Enjoy buddy!! See you soon for more FIFA action.. Next time I'm walking away victorious!"

Leona Lewis kept it simple with a few extra kisses, saying: "Happy birthday @Real_Liam_Payne have a lovely day! Xxx"

Last but by no means least, we were very excited to see that the Tom Daley bromance is still blossoming and he tweeted our favourite spoon hater, saying: "Happy Birthday @Real_Liam_Payne :) have a good one mate!!"

Of course the lovely Danielle didn't forget to send her love, but that's a whole other - and actually quite shocking - story that you can have a read of here.

We admire their efforts, but we still think Liam would have preferred us all to dress up as him and pretended to grab our crotches. Then again, there's always next year.
