Niall Horan recently made a rather shocking confession about Selena Gomez. For weeks, the pop stars have been plagued by rumors that they’re enjoying a romantic fling, and Selena has been very reluctant to admit that anything is going on. However, it looks like Niall Horan is trying to force her hand – he has decided that he’s going to wear his heart on his sleeve by declaring his very serious feelings for Selena.
Niall Horan recently revealed that he would marry Selena Gomez, which is going to make a lot of Beliebers and Directioners completely freak out. However, as the Mirror reports, Selena might not actually be Niall’s top choice for a bride-to-be. When Niall Horan revealed that he wouldn’t mind walking down the aisle with Justin Bieber’s ex, he was playing a game called “Sleep With, Marry, Cruise” (a version of “F**k, Marry, Kill”).
Niall Horan’s marriage revelation came during One Direction’s recent “Carpool Karaoke” ride with The Late Late Show host James Corden. In Corden’s version of “F**k, Marry, Kill,” players have to choose from the following options after they’re presented with a list of three people: they can have sex with one of the three, marry one of the three, and go on a year-long, sex-free cruise with one of the three.
Corden decided to turn the game into a hot tidbit of celebrity gossip by giving Niall Horan the following three choices: Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, and Tina Fey. Niall said he would sleep with Tina Fey, marry Selena Gomez, and go on a cruise with Demi Lovato. He didn’t have to spend any time at all thinking about his answers.
Some One Direction fans might be surprised that Niall Horan didn’t want to marry or sleep with Demi Lovato. During a June 2012 interview with Ryan Seacrest, Niall admitted that he had a crush on “beautiful” Demi and that he had been in contact with her.
“She’s a cool girl so I got in contact with her,” Niall revealed. “She’s really nice. I don’t know what’s going to happen.”
According to Us Weekly, Demi Lovato is currently dating on-again-off-again boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama, so perhaps Niall Horan was simply trying to be respectful of Wilmer while playing James Corden’s murder-free, expletive-free version of “F**k, Marry, Kill.”
Rumors about a possible romance between Selena Gomez and Niall Horan have been circulating since 2012. In April of that year, Gossip Cop had to shoot down a rumor that Justin Bieber was “furious” with Niall for flirting with Selena at the Kids’ Choice Awards. However, by 2014, there was some evidence that something really was going on between Niall Horan and Selena Gomez. According to the New York Daily News, Selena was spotted in London with Niall just a few days after Valentine’s Day. A fan even managed to snap a photo of Niall and Selena spending time together.

The romance rumors eventually died down, but they’ve started back up again in recent weeks. According to Us Weekly, an eyewitness reported seeing Niall and Selena making out at Jenna Dewan Tatum’s 35th birthday party on December 4. The pair allegedly left the actress’ birthday bash together after spending the entire night getting their flirt on.

Selena responded to the rampant romance rumors last week when Entertainment Tonight asked her if she and Niall Horan were an item. She vehemently denied the rumors, but she also used the L-word while talking about Niall.
“Oh my god! No,” Selena said. “I love him, I always have. He’s amazing.”
Just two days later, the pair was reportedly spotted kissing at The X-Factor finale party in London.
“They spent the entire night locked together and were very touchy-feely,” a source told the Sun. “They kissed in a corridor. There is no doubt there is something going on between them.”
Do you think something is really going on between Niall Horan and Selena Gomez?
