London; Singer Niall Horan's mother Maura says that her son is not ready for a serious relationship.
Horan was recently linked with model Barbara Palvin.
"I don't think Niall is ready yet for a serious girlfriend. He's a real happy-go-lucky lad. He wants to enjoy life and isn't ready to settle into a steady relationship as far as I know just yet,” mirror.co.uk quoted Maura as saying.
Horan, member of One Direction band, shares a friendly relationship with his mother and shares all important things in his life with her.
“When he has something to tell me, he'll tell me. He's a good gentle character himself. There are in that position where they'll meet lots of people and girls,” said Maura.
“A girl he'll go for dinner with here and to the pictures with there - but I'm not sure they are all girlfriends,” she added.
