Liam Payne of One Direction Accepts Wolverhampton Sons + Daughters Award [VIDEO]

One Direction have won a slew of awards since making their debut on U.K. ‘X Factor,’ but to Liam Payne, one title means even more than the rest: the Sons & Daughters Award from his hometown of Wolverhampton.

Payne, 20, was in New Zealand when the Sons & Daughters Awards ceremony took place on Oct. 10, but he recorded a video expressing his heartfelt gratitude for the honor, which he holds in even higher regard than his band’s much-coveted Brit Awards, VMAs and more.

“I just wanted to say a massive thank you for this,” Payne gushed. “My band has picked up a lot of awards over the past few years, but for me, this is the one I’m definitely most grateful for. Wolverhampton’s my home and it always will be.”

He added, “I want to say a massive thank you to all those people years ago who gave me the opportunities that I needed to get me where I am today, and I wanted to say a massive thank-you to the people that nominated me for this. It’s definitely the most important award. It’s going to take pride on my shelf.”

So sweet! Payne sent his parents to pick up his plaque and tweeted about it. How adorable is he?

Congrats, Liam!
