Tomlinson becomes a dad?

LOS ANGELES: English band One Direction star Louis Tomlinson and former girlfriend and stylist Briana Jungwirth have reportedly welcomed their first child, a son.

“Louis is happy and very excited about becoming a dad and he thinks Briana will be an amazing mother,” a mutual friend of the duo told

“It was a surprise at first, but he and Briana are very, very close friends and this has brought them even closer,” the insider added.

The 24-year-old singer and Jungwirth briefly dated in May 2015 following his split from long term girlfriend Eleanor Calder.

And as the news of his baby joy broke, the singer was spotted shopping at the Sunglass Hut store on January 22, just hours after the birth.
