Well I wasn’t expecting to discover this news with my morning coffee – One Direction Harry Styles has not one, not two but ‘four’ nipples!
Having an addition third nipple isn’t unheard off but a fourth… well that is pretty rare. But to anyone brandishing an extra body part, young Harry is your role model!
Hitting fame after appearing on last years X Factor Harry’s confidence is sky high and the knowledge of a secret family of nipples lurking underneath his clothes is not going to bring him down any time soon.
Growing an extra nipple is medically known as a ‘supernumerary nipple’ and it is surprisingly more common in men than it is women. While an extra nipple, that can often be mistaken for a large mole, can form in any mammal statistics show that the rate of 1 in 18 males are diagnosed with it and just and 1 in approximately 50 female develop it.
While no one is quite sure how they occur Harry has his own unique Â theory…
‘I’ve got 4 nipples. I think I must have been a twin, but then the other one went away and left its nipples behind,’ he explains.
Despite his unusual condition, Harry, 17, enjoys stripping off and flashing some flesh.
‘Stripping off is very liberating,’ he tells The Sun. ‘I feel so free.
‘I think you could safely say I’m not shy.’
