journey that no one could have ever predicted when the singer first began taking an interest in music during his childhood years.

“I find myself looking at women’s clothes, thinking they’re amazing.”

Fractured Family He was born Harry Edward Styles on February 1, 1994, in Redditch, a town of roughly 85,000 residents in England. The town is situated about a two-hour drive northwest of London, the capital of the country. His parents are Anne Twist and Desmond Styles, and he has an older sister, Gemma. Styles grew up in a home that was filled with love—and lots of fun, too.Whenever Styles shares snippets of his childhood during interviews with various media outlets, there’s a gleam in his eye and a smile on his face as he reflects on those early years. Plus, music hummed along in the background of his adolescence as both his parents were music lovers with diverse tastes that stretched from country music star ShaniaTwain and singer and pianist Norah Jones to the legendary Rolling Stones and Seattle grunge/metal band Soundgarden. Later the family packed up their belongings and moved about 90 miles north to Holmes Chapel in Cheshire. Sadly, as those early years unfolded in their new home, marital discontent led to his parents divorcing when Styles was seven-years-old. The trauma that accompanies the demise of a marriage, and the uprooting of a comfortable family life, can often be difficult for children who are too young to fully grasp what is happening around them and how their lives will never quite be the same again.

“That was a really weird time. I remember crying about it. I didn’t really get what was going on properly. I was just sad that my parents wouldn’t be together anymore.”
