Kim Kardashian Introduced Her Daughter to Niall Horan in the Funniest Way

Kardashian's daughter, North, already knew about Horan from a fun toy she had. 

By Jackie Manno

The Voice Coach Niall Horan and Kim Kardashian have a surprising connection thanks to two people: Ariana Grande and Kardashian's daughter, North. 

How to Watch

Watch The Voice on NBC and Peacock. 

We'll let Horan explain! The Voice Season 24 Coach revealed this fun tidbit after Olivia Minogue's Blind Audition during the premiere episode. 

"The first time I ever met Kim Kardashian, I was backstage at an Ariana Grande concert," Horan revealed. "And she brought North, her daughter, and this is how Kim introduced North to me: 'North, this is the guy that sings from your toothbrush.'" Naturally, Horan's fellow Coaches and the audience thought this anecdote was just delightful. After all, who doesn't want a singing One Direction toothbrush? 

Niall Horan on Seasons 23 and 24 of The Voice

Horan first appeared as a Coach on The Voice in Season 23. Not only did Horan win his very first rodeo with Artist Gina Miles, it also marked Blake Shelton's last run on the show.

In a March interview with NBC Insider, Horan opened up about his connection with Shelton.  “Blake, he’s like a dad to me," Horan said. "Y’know, he’s really helped me during the show. I’ve really enjoyed his company, and watching him has been a real honor...It's been amazing to work with him and Kelly Clarkson. Meeting them for the first time, the bond that I’ve grown with them has been amazing. It's been so funny to dive into that Southern sense of humor with them and see the stuff that goes on behind-the-scenes. It's been hilarious."

Fast-forward to Season 24, and Horan's fondness for Shelton hasn't changed.   

"I learned a lot from Blake last year sitting next to him," Horan told NBC Insider in a September interview. "That's what they tend to do: stick everyone down beside Blake if you're new. I learned a lot from even just watching him. Nothing that he said. Just watching how he does it. I think that made a lot of difference to how I've been in the show this year."

He also elaborated on how being a Coach has shifted his perspective as a musician. "I'm not used to being on TV unless it's an interview," he said. "This is a completely different beast. When Carson [Daly's] not there, we're hosting the show. You have to think on your feet a lot...We're not used to being the ones giving advice. We're just going about our careers day to day, doing gigs, going to the studio, writing songs and stuff like that. We're not used to being, like, 'This is what I think' and, 'This is how I think you should do it' and advice, advice, advice."
