With Harry Styles currently on a different continent to his mum, he found an extra special way to mark her birthday this week.
The former One Direction singer is part-way through his Love On Tour show, meaning he couldn’t be with his mum Anne Twist as she turned 53 on Thursday.
But that didn’t stop him from sending his best wishes – along with those of thousands of others.
Harry was playing his show in Uncasville, Connecticut, on Thursday, when he asked the crowd to help him sing a hearty Happy Birthday to Anne.
“If it’s okay with you, would you mind please singing Happy Birthday…to my mother?” he was heard asking in a fan video that has been doing the rounds on social media.
“And I hope that maybe she will hear it…and she will because I will show her.”
The crowd naturally obliged, with Harry admitting he wasn’t sure “which direction England was in” as tried to shout across the Atlantic Ocean.
