Boy bands make girls cry all the time, but it's not as often that they make girls' fathers cry. One Direction should be proud that they managed to make one dad in Australia get a severe case of the misty eyes. Anthony Lee has been working his butt off for two years (!) to get his daughter, Catie Rose, tickets to see One Direction, her favorite band. They'd entered competition after competition and tried everything else but to no avail. Finally, during the band's recent tour stop in Brisbane, Anthony and Catie Rose waited outside a photoshoot location and managed to meet the band. Catie was ecstatic, but her father's joy is on a whole different level, and he can't contain his tears. Lee said, "We never got tickets but we got the best thing, a hug from Harry and autographs from all the boys." Though in the end Anthony and Catie Rose did succeed because after his crying spell was captured by Australia's Today Show, the interview host has promised to get the family tickets to the next One Direction concert in the country. Predictably, this news made Mr. Lee cry all over again.
