Does Harry Styles have four nipples?

Harry Styles has revealed he has four nipples.

He made the revelation during an interview with American chat show host Chelsea Handler.

Chelsea said: "There's a rumour on the internet that you have four nipples."

The pop star confirmed the rumour was very much true, prompting Chelsea to ask just whereabouts the four nipples are.

Pointing to his chest, the singer said: "There's the usual [place] then a little lower."

A fascinated Chelsea responded: "I didn't realise that was a thing."

"Yep," replied Harry. "It's a thing."

Why do some people have extra nipples?

Having more than just the regular two nipples, is a recognised condition, known as polythelia.

Sometime around the fourth week of pregnancy, is when breast tissue begins to form.

This development typically only happens along two thick symmetrical ridges of skin called the milk lines, which run from just above our armpits to the very beginning of our legs.

The milk lines are thickest at around week six weeks and fade away by week nine, ample enough time for our breasts and accompanying nipples to reach full growth (at least until puberty for women).

But sometimes the milk lines don’t go away completely.

When that happens, pockets of extra breast tissue can start growing in other areas.

From there, this growth can give rise to anything from a tuft of hair to a completely operational breast (lactation included) with its own glands, areola, and nipple.

Which other celebrities have extra nipples?

Harry Styles is certainly not alone in the world of celebrity when it comes to extra nipples.

Well know stars who have extra nips include Zac Efron, Mark Wahlberg, Tilda Swinton, Lily Allen, Carrie Underwood and Bill Paxton.

Also, Love Island star Danielle Sellers revealed on the show she had a third nipple.
