Louis Tomlinson has become the first One Direction dad and has now shared a photo of his new baby son on Twitter to his – wait for it – 21 million fans. Gulp. We can only imagine how much the 1D fan girls are hyperventilating right now.
The 24-year-old’s ex Briana Jungwirth gave birth to a baby boy at the end of last week and the proud new dad took to Twitter to confirm the news in the early hours of Saturday morning. “I’m very happy!!” he tweeted.
But news reports about the couple naming their little one Sydney Rain were incorrect (including ours – oops!). In his tweet, Louis confirms he’s actually called Freddie.
Since the baby arrived, Louis has been taking to Twitter to share his daddy news with the world. “Daddy daddy cool,” he’s said. And: “:) 🙂 :)”
We reckon it’s safe to say he’s pretty chuffed with his son then.
New mum Briana took to Instagram with a gorgeous photo too.
But reports suggest the delivery wasn’t all plain sailing for the new dad. It’s claimed that Louis was banned from the delivery room by Briana’s mum after they had a blazing row – and that he spent most of the delivery waiting in his car.
“Briana’s mother Tammi went berserk at him in the hospital. He spent a lot of the time she was in labour sat in his car because Tammi wouldn’t let him near Briana,” a ‘source’ told The Sun.
“He’s looked after her very well but Tammi feels it’s not enough. They are trying to work out a custody deal.”
It’s unclear how the couple will arrange custody of the child – as they’re no longer together.
Louis is now said to be dating Disney star and actress Danielle Campbell.
