Des Styles thinks his kids have done pretty well for themselves

Harry Styles‘ dad Des is very pleased with the paths his children have taken in life.

The 56-year-old joined Harry, 19, and ex-wife Anne Cox this week to see daughter Gemma graduate from Sheffield Hallam University with a 1st Class degree.

After the ceremony, One Direction fans wanted to know how happy he was with Gemma, 22, and Harry‘s achievements – but Des couldn’t help giving a silly reply on Twitter.

‘Loads ask if I’m proud of G & H? Joke answer is I was expecting a head of state and prem footballer. Got a pop star and a genius! Not bad? X,’ Tweeted Des.

One funny Directioner replied: ‘Could have definitely gotten worse. Could have had a murderer and prostitute. Let’s all thank our lucky stars for this miracle.’

Des is close to his kids and had a brilliant time watching Gemma collect her certificate at Sheffield City Hall.

‘Fantastic family day today at Gemma’s graduation in Sheffield. Whole family there, great time and VERY proud of Gem. Tears were shed! X,’ Tweeted Des.
