Louis Tomlinson To Be A Dad, One Direction Singer Having Baby With Briana Jungwirth
Louis Tomlinson is going to be a father. The 23-year-old One Direction singer is expecting his first child with Briana Jungwirth, a stylist in L.A.
Tomlinson is reportedly “happy and very excited” about becoming a first-time dad. The news was a “surprise at first, but he and Briana are very, very close friends and this has brought them even closer,” a source tells People. Tomlinson and Jungwirth met through mutual friends not long after the singer and his then-girlfriend Eleanor Calder broke up in March. As Gossip Cop reported at the time, Calder and Tomlinson split after two years together because she was in England, while he was constantly on the road with One Direction.
Tomlinson and Jungwirth’s baby is due in early 2016, and the singer is looking for a home near Jungwirth, who’s more of a close friend than a girlfriend. Their parents and stepparents met for the first time in L.A. over July Fourth weekend, and we’re told all the parties are “over the moon.”
On Monday, in connection with One Direction’s new charity Action/1D, the already paternal Tomlinson tweeted, “I want to live in a world where every sick child can see a doctor.”
In the past, Gossip Cop has had to debunk a number of false reports about Tomlinson, including a story in February that claimed he announced he was gay. But we’re very happy, this time around, to say it’s true that Tomlison is going to be a dad. Congratulations to Tomlinson and Jungwirth!
