PIC: Niall Horan and former bandmate Liam Payne reunite in Los Angeles


Niall Horan and Liam Payne reunited in Los Angeles last night.

The One Direction stars caught up presumably for the first time since Liam welcomed his first child with girlfriend Cheryl – so the former bandmates definitely had a lot to discuss.

Taking to Twitter, Niall posted a picture of himself being ‘christened’ with the giant gold chain Liam has been sporting lately.

“Great to see Payno today,” Niall wrote. “Here I am being christened with ‘the chain’. Missed ya buddie.”

Liam has previously been mocked by his bandmates for his heavy choice in jewellery, with Louis Tomlinson hinting they were going to start calling him Liam “Chain” in the past.

Niall was the first bandmate to publicly congratulate Liam after the birth of his son, Bear, who he welcomed in March.

“She’s a lovely girl, he’s a lovely guy and now they’ve got a baby and it’s great.

“She’s one of the most beautiful women in the country so he did well, he did well there as far as I’m concerned,” he told The Sun.

Meanwhile, Liam has been spending some time apart from his girlfriend Cheryl and their baby boy as he’s currently promoting his upcoming solo single, Strip That Down, in the US.

However, thanks to modern technology – the singer hasn’t missed out on too much.

“We’re always Facetiming and the other day he smiled at me for the first time, it was so special. I just want to spend every moment with him but she (Cheryl) is so great, she does everything on her own, she’s been amazing,” he told The Sun on Sunday.
