6 surprise celebrity pregnancies
Whether you’re a One Direction fan or not, it’s safe to say we all had a bit of a shock this week when it emerged that Louis Tomlinson is reportedly expecting his first child. The 23-year-old isn’t in a relationship with the mum-to-be Los Angeles-based stylist Briana Jungwirth, also 23.
But despite the baby news being a surprise for fans, Louis is said to be “happy and very excited about becoming a dad”, according to People.
Although Louis is yet to confirm or deny the rumours, Briana’s due date is said to be early next year. Louis plans to be a “hands-on dad” according to the source – even looking for a house in LA to be close to his baby.

We never thought we’d see the day that Simon Cowell started a family. The X Factor judge can be a bit of a tyrant on his talent show, so we wrongly assumed we’d never see him become a dad.
But since his girlfriend Lauren Silverman gave birth to Eric in February last year, we’ve seen a much softer side to him – father and son even wear matching outfits!
When Jacqueline Jossa was pregnant with baby Ella – born in February this year – she revealed that she and her boyfriend Dan Osborne were in “complete shock” when they first found out she was pregnant. “We went straight to a 24-hour supermarket and got a test,” Dan told Ok! Magazine.
“We did the test together that night and it came back positive,” Jacqueline added. “I was in complete shock.”
Both admitted they hadn’t planned a baby, and the news took some getting used to, but all turned out well in the end!
It’s not just first-time parents that have the ability to shock us with their baby news. Only 8 months after having baby Jett, Katie Price was on holiday when she discovered she was already 6 months pregnant with her fifth child. Her daughter Bunny was born in August 2014.
Sam Bailey had only just won The X Factor in 2013 when she discovered she was pregnant in a toilet at Asda. “I went and did it in the toilet while he was getting all the food,” she said at the time. “I came out and went, ‘Yep, I’m pregnant’. It wasn’t planned.”
The 36-year-old admitted she was worried how her record label would take the news – but she was able to postpone her tour.
