One Direction 2012: Harry Styles’ dad says “it wouldn’t bother Harry if he got a girl pregnant!”
Most parents of teenagers inevitably worry about their son or daughter ending up being a parent at a young age, and for most teens, it’s an issue they worry about too, but not Harry Styles, according to his dad Des!
In an interview with the Daily Record about his famous heartthrob son, Des said, “I never needed to sit him down and tell him about the birds and the bees.
“I tried to train him up as we went along.
“We had those conversations and it was almost as though he’d say, ‘Yeah, dad, I’m on board with that’, rather than going all sicky and saying, ‘Oh dad don’t talk about things like that’, you know the way some kids do.
“I said to Harry, just make sure you don’t get anyone pregnant because if that were to happen, it would really screw things up big time.”
However, Des added, “If he then makes a mistake, so be it. There’s nothing I can do to stop him doing anything…
“He’s away in a different country and completely different world. From a One Direction aspect, it wouldn’t be great. It would drive a truck through that.
“I don’t think it would bother him too much if he did get a girl pregnant.
“He would be a responsible parent and get on with it, which seems a bit bizarre, doesn’t it? But I honestly think that’s the way he’d be.”
Des went on to reveal that the 1D singer has always been popular with the ladies. He explained, “We went on holiday once to Cyprus when he was nine and as we left, there was a whole melee of teenage girls, 16, 17-year-olds gathered by the side of the bus saying, ‘bye Harry, we love you’. How did he do that?
“He’s just got this fantastic personable demeanour to him. Clearly he’s a bit special.
“It’s not just his looks but he’s very charming, it’s like a gift really.
“From performing in the car or on holiday he’d always be able to hold a crowd or hold a room even when he was a kid.
“His sister has always been academically brilliant and when he was about 14 he would say, ‘I’ll never live up to Gemma’, but the tables are turned now through what’s happened to Harry.”
But Des reckons that just because women throw themselves at Harry, he’s not likely to become a “ladykiller.”
He said, “He’s not one to run three girls at once. He’s a one girl person when he’s with somebody.
“There was a short period of time when he had several different girlfriends one after the other and I said, ‘Look don’t get a reputation because there’ll come a point where the girls will catch on to that’.
“He took it on board but whether he tries to live by that mantra I’ve no idea.
“As far as I know, Harry doesn’t have a girlfriend at the moment. They’re very rarely in the same place for him to be able to do that.
“He should ride the wave. Anybody would be mad to turn down what they’re doing but it doesn’t look very good from a girlfriend or prospective partner’s point of view, does it?
“I’ve been married three times so I wouldn’t say anyone should take a leaf out of my book.”
And finally, Des revealed that though he doesn’t see a great deal of his son these days, he’s very proud of all he’s achieved.
He said, “The downside for me is I hardly see him. But on Father’s day Harry sent me texts saying ‘Love you more than all the world, kiss kiss kiss,’ from LA and Gemma bought me a nice bottle of wine from her and Harry.
“I’m just very proud to be his dad but I don’t want to exploit that either, I just want to be here if he needs me.”
