One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson is reportedly expecting a baby with Los Angeles based stylist Briana Jungwirth.
People have reported that the 1D heartthrob is set to become a dad.
According to the publication, a close friend of the 23-year-old revealed: “Louis is happy and very excited about becoming a dad and he thinks Briana will be an amazing mother.
“It was a surprise at first, but he and Briana are very, very close friends and this has brought them even closer.”
Louis apparently met Briana through mutual friends earlier this year following his split from longterm girlfriend Eleanor Calder in May.
The insider added: “Louis and Briana care about each other very much and have spent a lot of time together privately over the last few months.
“They are both really happy and although they aren’t in a relationship, their friendship is extremely strong and they are both really excited about the baby. It’s early days and Briana and the baby’s health are the most important things right now.”
“Briana is a really lovely girl; she’s absolutely not interested in Louis’ fame. She’s very private and most of the time they spend together is out of the public eye, just hanging out with their friends.”
The news has been met with disbelief by fans on Twitter, with one user @BradTheLadLong throwing a spanner in the works after claiming he fabricated the entire story.
However, fans are adamant that the rumours are true and have flooded onto the site to express their congratulations.
We think this Twitter user summed up our feelings perfectly.
