Of all the One Direction lads forever in his heart, we reckon Simon Cowell has a particularly soft spot for Louis Tomlinson. Obviously he loves them all like they're his sons from other huns, but Louis and Simon have got a special fatherly bond that stretches from this life into the next.
They teamed up together to form an X Factor super-judging team on the last season, Simon's been super supportive of Louis becoming a dad right from the start, and this weekend they even went for dinner together over in LA to have a catch up. Umm, cute.
And err, here's some really fantastic quality pics of their reunion.
Not the MOST HQ pics we've ever seen, but luckily we'd recognise that white shirt and that sassy hands-in-pocket stance from a mile off.
Seeing as they're one of the most famous duos in the business, people soon spotted Louis and Simon grabbing a bite to eat at a restaurant in LA, and word soon spread that they were also joined by Danielle Campbell and Lauren Silverman.
So technically, this was actually a DOUBLE DATE. Amazing.
And because he's a little love, Louis was more than happy to take a few pics with fans who waited outside the restaurant for him. Do we even need to tell you that he looked dreamy? Nah, of course we don't.
Can Simon Cowell just hurry up and adopt the whole of One Direction please?
Glad to see Uncle Si and Luigi having a catch up on their double date? Let us know with a tweet to @Sugarscape.
