The One Direction singer shows Sophia how much she cares

Liam Payne is clearly a romantic.

The One Direction singer, 20, Tweeted Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills yesterday to ask if he could put on Gorgon City‘s new track for his girlfriend Sophia Smith.

It’s Sophia‘s birthday next week and Liam wants to spoil her.

‘@scott_mills please could you play ready for your love and give a shout out to my girlfriend sophia smith whos birthday is in 5 days time :),’ Tweeted Liam.

Liam is currently on an exotic holiday abroad and yesterday shared a funny Twitter snap of himself posing with shells held to his chest like breasts.

He’ll be back at work with 1D when they head off on their stadium tour in April.

Directioners reckon Liam‘s sweet gesture for Sophia – who he used to go to school with in Wolverhampton – was absolutely adorable.

‘i want a boyfriend like you sigh,’ Tweeted one.

Another wrote: ‘you are polite and you must be such a great boyfriend why are you so perfect.’
