The Manchester United star apparently sings 'What Makes You Beautiful' to make his son laugh.

Wayne Ronney is reportedly looking to enlist the help of One Direction to perform at his son Kai's upcoming birthday party.

The England and Manchester United striker is putting together plans for his and wife Coleen's first child's special day, and is keen to get the boy band stars at the bash.

"The party will be on 2nd November and Wayne is desperate to get One Direction on board," a source told the Daily Star. "He wants them to perform a few hits in the back garden at their mansion in Prestbury, Cheshire."

The football ace apparently also wants to make sure Harry, Niall, Liam, Louis and Zayn sing their hit 'What Makes You Beautiful', as he makes his son laugh by giving his own rendition.

"Wayne's particularly keen to hear them sing 'What Makes You Beautiful', a song he often sings to Kai to make him laugh," the insider continued. "He's so keen he's even using some of his famous connections in the hope that it will persuade Harry and the rest of the lads to make an appearance."

The football star has been able to help put together a star-studded line-up due to time-off recuperating from his current leg injury.

"Wayne's had plenty of time to plan it as he's been out injured, so it should be fun-packed," added the source.

Wayne has several friends in the world of music and was rumoured to have joined Chris Brown for a night out in Los Angeles earlier this year alongside England team mate Ashley Cole and former Chelsea star Didier Drogba.
