There’s nothing as ageing as tracking the passing of time to the life milestones being reached by members of the most popular boy band of the era. A few months ago we saw Zayn make waves as he threw in his carefully constructed career and media managed life for a debatable hairstyle. Today we’re reflecting on the fact Louis, whose legal surname is Tomlinson, is becoming a father.
It seems only yesterday that One Direction was concocted in an X Factor branded petri dish and made become friends in Simon Cowell’s pool house.
People reports the One Direction singer is having a baby with his ex-girlfriend, stylist Briana Jungwirth, with a source connected to the couple saying ?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.?
Briana is 23 and apparently Louis is house-hunting in Los Angeles, where she is based, so he can support her during her pregnancy. Which is nice. Louis and Brianna aren’t dating anymore but these towo youngsters seem to be handling everything in a very mature and positive manner. People also report that Briana and Louis? mother have hit it off. Louis? mom Johanna is a midwife so we imagine there is a WhatsApp group going.
Twitter meanwhile has spent the last few hours processing the news, not taking the impending fatherhood of another person as well as the future dad himself. It’s been a tough year for the One Direction fandom what with Zayn’s departure, and, to an extent, Harry’s spectacular fall last week. Here’s how they’re not coping on Twitter.
