Harry Styles' Mum Praises Him For Helping Support His Grandad Following Parkinson's Diagnosis
"They love him to death and he is so proud of them"
Anne Twist, mum of Harry Styles, has praised him and sister Gemma for helping to support their grandad following his Parkinson's diagnosis.
Speaking at a benefit raising money for Parkinson's UK this week, Harry and Gemma's mum spoke out about how the disease is affecting their family firsthand.
“They have been absolutely brilliant. They love him to death and he is so proud of them," Anne told The Sun, when asked about how Harry and Gemma dealt with the diagnonsis of her father, Brian Selley.
“My father has Parkinson’s and I have been a member of the charity for three or four years now and they have been very helpful with the help that he has had, and he is lucky enough to have a Parkinson’s nurse who is local to him and I know not everybody has that.
“He started off with a tremor which was just diagnosed as a tremor in his 70’s and then it’s just sort of been, I mean he is 81 and he’ll be 82 this year, so it’s just progressed," Anne continues. “He goes to weekly exercise classes and he is really trying his best. It’s a slow progression but a couple of years ago we weren’t sure how long he was going to be because he was really quite poorly.”
Supporting his grandad isn't the only reason Anne is feeling pretty proud of Harry right now and she also revealed her reaction to his debut solo single, Sign Of The Times.
“I loved it. I loved it. It’s brilliant. It made me cry," she says. “It’s all good and it’s just a little step forward for him. He has been working really hard so obviously I haven’t seen a massive amount of him but a bit more than before.
“It’s been nice being able to spend a bit of quality time with him now and again.”
