KATE Cassidy was once just a normal Gen-Z teenager with a love for pop music.
Now, she’s dating one of the most famous boy band members of her generation after being infatuated with him as a teenager.
The 24-year-old revealed that she has been “showing off” her handsomeness since she was 11 years old by drawing his image on an ice cream cone.
13 years on, Kate is now in a relationship with the man of her dreams: Liam Payne.
The pair were first spotted together in matching outfits on Halloween last year, but Kate’s romance with the One Direction singer began long before that.
A self-proclaimed ‘Directioner’, she was a fan of the band during their heyday from 2010 to 2016.
When she was just 11 years old, she drew a picture of Liam on an ice cream cone to show he became her boyfriend.
13 years have passed, her wish has come true.
Kate has kept the stick ever since and recently took to TikTok to show it off, justifiably boasting about her expressionist technique.
Manifestation is the idea that you can make your dreams, goals, and aspirations come true by truly believing in them.
“I was the best performer,” Kate said. “Be careful what you wish for.”
She is originally from New Jersey, USA but later moved to London to settle with Liam, 30 years old.
It’s unclear what Kate does for a living, but thanks to her famous boyfriend, she often attends events with the participation of stars and red carpets.
One Direction are considered teen idols and are often subjected to fan hysteria. They embarked on four world tours over six years.
Their fans call themselves ‘The Directioners’ and are considered one of the largest fan groups to ever exist – often forming huge crowds outside hotels, airports and venues concert to get a glimpse of the five members.
Along with Liam, One Direction also includes Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson.
Kate’s video about her famous lover racked up nearly a million views within 12 hours of posting.
Another TikTok she shared of Liam relaxing on vacation has garnered more than 8 million views.
The couple now have a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppy together, named Lily.
