Things are hotting up between One Direction's Niall Horan and Barbara Palvin

Niall Horan is reported to be picking up the pace when it comes to his relationship with Victoria’s Secret model Barbara Palvin.

The Irish hottie, 20, has plans to jet the Hungarian brunette out to his hometown of Mullingar so that she can meet his parents.

Babs has already met loads of Niall‘s friends and is really in with his London/Irish mates,’ a source tells the Daily Mirror.

‘But this will be the first time he has taken a girl home to meet his whole family.

‘It’s really exciting. He can’t wait for everyone to meet her.’

Niall‘s mum Maureen Gallagher might be pretty shocked to see Barbara standing on her doorstep as her boy has been linked to so many ‘girlfriends’.

‘Everyone that he poses for a photograph with or spends any longer than a few minutes with, he’s said to be dating,’ says Mo.

‘You have to ignore the hype because you’d go out of your mind if you believed everything that was written.’
