When Niall Horan of One Direction fame became an uncle to his brother Greg’s adorable baby boy, we couldn’t have been happier. Not only because it meant that more gorgeous Horan’s have been born into the world, but because we knew there’d be a whole ton of dreamy Niall + Baby selfies coming our way.

Nialler shared the latest snap of him and his super cute nephew this week, and in one swift upload, all our dreams of him fathering our children in ten years time became approximately 94% more intense. HELP.

Niall Horan

But seeing Niall getting all parental and broody made us think - the world is really lacking a gallery of pictures showing One Direction holding babies. SO HERE YOU GO. Sorry about the inevitable demise of your ovaries and all emotional stability.

We should probably start with this fairly new snap of Liam Payne getting protective over gorgeous baby Brooklyn, the daughter of 1D stylist Caroline. Look how he's balancing a tiny baby on his arm, OH MY. The chances of us surviving through this gallery are slim.

Liam Payne

Brooklyn is probably the luckiest baby in the world, as not only does she get cradled delicately by Liam, but she also has Zayn Malik as a godfather, to nuzzle his beard on her head and teach her how to pout properly when she's old enough to use Instagram.

 

Zayn baby

Oh jeez, what have we started here. If you were planning on having a productive afternoon, then sorry about that, because we're pretty sure you won't be able to concentrate on anything except a world filled with Zayn Malik Jnr.

Niall baby

It takes a lot to distract us from Niall Horan's bulging, tanned biceps. Make him hold an adorable newborn baby with fluffy hair, and it might just do the job.

Harry Styles baby

Pictures of Harry Styles playing on a computer with Lou Teasdale's baby Lux make us make noises that we didn't even know humans could make. It's something along the lines of PHHNNARRRRRRGGG.

Harry and Louis baby Lux

Pictures of Harry joined by Louis Tomlinson cradling baby Lux make the dying cat noises turn into dying dinosaur noises. THIS IS TOO MUCH.

Louis Lux

OKAY NOW YOU'RE GOING TO NEED TO STOP. Imagine coming home from work and seeing that sat on the sofa. That'll be our daydream for today, if you were wondering.

Zayn Lux

This baby understands how we're feeling about life right now. Zayn, can you cuddle us like that please?

Niall Horan

Even the baby is fangirling over being cuddled by Niall. At least she was wearing her best frock for the occasion, clever gal.

Harry Lux

Seriously? You're seriously doing this to us right now, Harry? Help, what is air, le dead, le sigh, glass case of emotion etc.

Zayn Lux

And errr, we're just gonna leave this one of Zayn looking lovingly at a child for you to sob over when you're feeling hormonal.

DID YOU ENJOY THAT? Which is your favourite One Direction Holding Babies picture? We're off to eat our body weight in chocolate and cry over the fact that a tiny fetus 1D human isn't growing inside of us right now.
