One fifth of One Direction. Solo artist. Bona fide movie star. Vogue cover model. And now, celebrity dog sitter? 

It seems that "Golden" boy Harry Styles has mastered a new skill and, yes, it involves one very special "Sweet Creature."

The Crown breakout star Emma Corrin revealed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon that Harry did, in fact, babysit her dog, who is named Spencer.

Emma dished on her poochy connection to the singer, as seen in E! News' exclusive first-look clip of the Tuesday, Nov. 17, episode.

"He once dog sat for me," she told Jimmy Fallon. "I was having dinner and know where he lives, and he looked after Spencer for me."

But it was a one-time gig, and Emma has a pretty good idea as to why. She explained, "He hasn't done it again and I think it's because, halfway through the meal, I got a message that just said, ‘He won't stop farting. Is this normal?'"

And Emma's favorite part of the feel good story? "The thing I love about this is that also my dog has no idea, which is I think the wonderful thing about it. That for a dog, it's just a person."

However, it wasn't Harry's first time as a pet sitter. His extensive résumé also includes the time he fed a fan's fish (named Harry, ofc) and when he randomly offered to watch a stranger's dog while the owner went inside a Hollywood restaurant to pick up takeout.

The lucky guy, Rory Carroll, wrote of the interaction, "Harry Styles saw my predicament, tapped me on the shoulder and said he would watch Oscar while I went in. What a guy."

It seems that Harry has a track record for treating both pups and people with kindness. Hope he's preparing his Wag! walker application as we speak. 

As for Emma, it's very apropos that her dog is named Spencer, given her role as Princess Diana, whose former name was Lady Diana Spencer, in season four of The Crown.

Initially Emma said she felt "very daunted" and "quite scared" to play the British legend. The 24-year-old actress particularly wanted to do justice to Diana's experience with bulimia and ensure she depicted it in "an honest way." She explained her reasoning: "Diana was very candid about her experience with bulimia, and I so admire that."
