Louis posted an adorable pic of him the day he tried out for the X Factor and thanked his late mum, Johannah for making him audition!
We literally cannot believe its been eight whole years since One Direction began?!
Louis Tomlinson celebrated the anniversary by taking to Instagram to share this adorable throwback snap of him the day he queued alongside thousands of people to try out for the X Factor.
Ah to be in 2010 again, we remember that haircut well.
Louis took the opportunity to thank and pay tribute to his mum Johannah, who passed away in 2016 after a battle with Leukaemia. He says she is the one who persuaded him go to the audition and we therefore basically have her to thank for the creation of 1D?! Soz, Simon.
8 years today I went for my first audition on the X factor. Thanks you to my beautiful mum for talking me into going! Thank you to each and every person who’s ever supported !— Louis Tomlinson (@Louis_Tomlinson) March 26, 2018
Louis and his mum shared an incredibly close relationship and she often accompanied him to various events he attended with his band mates.
It's not the first time he has spoken openly about his mum on social media, having shared this picture of the two of them before the Brits captioned: ''I love you and miss you so much.''
The boys have all achieved so much since they formed the group on the show and Louis recently teased a picture of him back in the studio last month.
He's proven once again that he is still the sweetest guy out there and we can't wait to see what music he has in store for us.
Fancy watching Louis get serenaded by a Mariachi band, cos us too...
