Louis Tomlinson Welcomes a Son: ‘He Is Healthy and Pretty Amazing’

Louis Tomlinson Welcomes Son Briana Jungwirth
AKM-GSI

The first One Direction baby has been born – and he’s “Perfect.”

Louis Tomlinson and Briana Jungwirth have welcomed their first child, a son, on Thursday, Jan. 21 in Los Angeles, a source close to Jungwirth tells PEOPLE exclusively.

The singer confirmed the news early Saturday morning via Twitter.

“I’m pleased to say my baby son was born yesterday. He is healthy and pretty amazing,” Tomlinson, 24, wrote. “I’m very happy!!”

In July, PEOPLE reported that the singer was expecting his first child with Jungwirth, a Los Angeles-based stylist.

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

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

Tomlinson and Jungwirth met and briefly dated in last May following his split from longterm girlfriend Eleanor Calder that March.

Tomlinson has since been linked to reported girlfriend Danielle Campbell. Tomlinson was spotted with The Originals actress in Chicago days before Christmas, followed by a night out in London just before New Year’s.

Early Friday morning, Tomlinson’s former stepfather, Mark Tomlinson, sparked speculation that the new addition had arrived with a Tweet: “Is that the patter of tiny feet?” he wrote.

Now that the 1D guys are on an extended hiatus, Tomlinson will have some extra time on his hands to dote on his newborn son.

As the singer previously said, “It’s a very exciting time.”

A rep for Tomlinson could not be reached for comment.

Cue the hoards of delusional 1D fans saying, “No!” “It’s fake!” “He’s gay!” And on and on. They could show photos of a miniature Louis coming out of Brianna’s birth canal and they’d still deny it.

Congrats to these two… I feel for this baby though, since no one believes he even exists. Poor kid will be scared when he grows up and reads all this crap.

first and last child for them. it was a one night stand. congrats are in order. a child is a joy. the mom and child will be taken care of really well

Andrea on

It’s a mistake!

Nice PR stunt

a one night stand really paid off congrats

Stacey McRae on

So he already has another girlfriend and the last one has his child? WTF is wrong with this people?

Such an accident.

Oh this is an all-around lovely situation! Poor baby…

Shelly on

Whatttt? LOL! Pretty sure this is the member of One Direction that I saw at a gay bar in 2014. Having a hard time believing that he went even within three feet of a woman. I thought everyone in LA knows that he’s gay! Poor guy trying to closet himself with a fake baby.. hope he accepts himself soon

dancer92136 on

He didn’t welcome the baby on his own. I think there is a mother involved named Briana that should also be congratulated. Congratulations Briana and Louis

Kimmy on

Lol at the way this article was written. Just call it what it was.

Kelly122 on

Now all the silly people come out of the woodwork and say rude things about her, about him, about something g that is none of their business. No doubt this child will be raised by two loving parents and will certainly never want for anything financially. They will travel between the U.S. And the UK and attend the best schools in the world. They will have two famies to love them….why be critical? Unless of course you’re just jealous? Congratulations to them and their families. I’m sure he’s a beautiful baby!

Inky girl on

Rather they planned for this baby or not it’s still a blessing and I’m glad they are going to parent together even though they don’t have a romantic relationship. It show’s a lot of maturity. Congratulations to both of them and I wish them the best. I bet the baby boy is beautiful and I hope they announce a name soon🙂

bluevicstone on

It’s still not confirmed by any 1D’s rep or Louis’ himself so SHUSH shush shush, please.

WOW! That was a super-fast pregnancy. I feel like I just heard about it last month.

Commonsense on

Why do people like to force the idea that babies are blessings? Not always sometimes they are hardships. Enough with trying to brainwash people into the whole it’s rainbows and butterfly’s scenario. And not everyone is meant to be a parent.

Tina on

“Very close friends”? Well, I guess so.

Summer on

Her mama didn’t raise no fool, right? If they dated briefly only in May, that means she got pregnant right away. Knew her window of opportunity was small!

BIG AL on

Fornicators.

mic on

ive heard the babys name is jacob. not sure about that

Kristina on

Even if she did get pregnant right away she still had the baby early. A woman is really pregnant for 9 1/2 months not just 9 months.

doollover223 on

This is so bull, he’s not the father seriously guys. He needs to take take a DNA test if anything, he’s married to Harry and has been since SEptember 28, 2013. Their management forced Louis into this and him and Harry aren’t allowed to come out yet, don’t believe this stupid fake story, seriously, it’s not true

Guest on

A cad, soon to be unemployed. Good luck to the new baby – he’s going to need it.

doollover223 on

Guys the story isn’t true, he’s married to Harry and has been since September 28, 2013. This story is so bull don’t believe everything you hear online or in a magazine, Louis is being forced into this by his management and him and Harry aren’t allowed to come out yet. Don’t believe this stupid made up story it’s not true, he hasn’t taken a DNA test yet either

Summer on

She didn’t have the baby early. I was due 1/21 and got pregnant in mid May. Full term is 37-39 weeks, so she’s right on time. A woman is only really pregnant for 38 weeks and most months have 4.3 weeks, not exactly 4. The whole “9.5 months, 10 months” thing drives me batty! And now I have officially lost brain cells thinking about this too much!

mschwellinger on

I kind of want to stick around for the “ZOMG HE’S WITH HARRY SHE WASN’T REALLY PREGNANT IT WAS A PILLOW HE’S SUPPOSED TO LOVE MEEEEEEEEE” comments but I can only bang my head into my desk so many times.

Unknown on

I’m sorry, but “exclusive source? Yeah right. You all are just lying to get readers. Hollywood life is the same way. Until LOUIS confirms it, we won’t know. So stop making up lies.

Carolyn on

Couple of too young nitwits. No commitment, just very very close friends.

sandy on

She sealed her deal. she will never have to worry about money. Hopefully she will find a career of her own and make some of her own money to support her son.

Lucia Montenegro on

Paternity test ASAP, Louis! You’re not the only guy she was banging around the same time you did! A lot of people have agendas! Be smart!

pp on

So what ?? He left her when She was still pregnant. He is a title child and not a grow man.

Sydney on

So she was a rebound girl who he knocked up and has already moved on to someone else. Hope he raises his son better than somebody raised him.

Aubrey on

LMAOOOOOO

Me on

@Rachel, your comment reminded me of the NSYNC years when girls flipped out when Joey had a baby. These girls hormone levels will even out eventually and like me will look back on the insanity and be mortified. Lol
A baby is always a blessing, so congrats to the new parents.

Amber on

Shelley, regardless of HIS sexuality (I DONT CARE! WHO SHOULD) closeted men can have a child with a woman, dont be so naive. I know a guy who has two Boys he is a great father to, and he divorced his wife after realizing he couldnt live a lie anymore. Its called making yourself okay with the woman because you like her as a friend, getting a bit drunk, and letting the ‘feel’ occur. Women do it a lot to please their men when younger in life.

Y!kes on

Good God, so many stories going around. “The baby is real!” “The baby is fake!” “It’s a boy!” “It’s a girl!” And then we have all the delusional fans saying, “nO wAY! LoUiS Is mARriED TO HaRrY! eVeN thOUGH mULTiPLE PEoPLe WhO KnOW THeM PERSONaLlY saY otHERwiSE, i beLieVE thE stuPID tHeOrieS somE FaN cAme UP wIth11!!111!1!!” Honestly, I’m not saying she is pregnant but it’s ridiculous seeing people claim that she isn’t simply because they want to try to force Louis into this relationship with Harry. I’m hoping that all of this is true and that the baby is real so the Larries will just… shut up. (Although it’s not likely to happen. Louis and Briana could go on Maury and get every paternity test ever and people would still blame Modest. Yes, Modest are assholes, but for Christ’s sake, a fake baby? You can’t honestly believe that can you?

SnapeGirl on

I think it’s slanderous for a publication like People magazine to announce the birth of a child without getting an official confirmation from the person you named as the “father”, or his publicist. If that’s the way you operate, I’d like to officially announce that I just gave birth to Chris Pratt’s baby. I can’t wait for my People announcement.

Rachel on

@Me — lol… I remember those days too! And I do believe they announced that Joey had a baby in a magazine article by saying, “Joey appears with his beautiful new baby daughter” or something like that and then everyone’s like. “Well crap, that’s one off the market, but at least it’s not Justin!”

And to all those saying this girl is cashing in and yada yada… science lesson; it takes two individuals to have sex and make a baby. They’re both equally responsible.

Savanna Thompson on

I am happy for Louis and Briana and I want to know what their babies name is because I am curious

lissett on

aww cute cant wait to see louis son

Could you imagine them telling their son hey you were a one night stand but at least me and your mom are REALLY close friends right. Poor kid doesn’t even know his dad is working on child 2 with Danielle Campbell

Nice try, Modest!, larry is real.🌈

He is VERY stupid if he doesn’t get a dna test. There was some discussion about her ‘overlapping’ with some other guy. (can we say ‘ho?) Sounds to me like she’s just a gold digger…… If he don’t get dna… why would you support someone else’s kid??? You don’t just assume it’s your kid and pay for it. The real sperm donor needs to step up and take responsibility. If that is the case. Let him be the dad to his kid!

lisajane2867 on

And BTW, they hooked up in March, which is exact timing for having a baby now. They announced it in May. And he NEVER confirmed anything about him being a father. When someone said exciting news a baby! He never ever said YES I’m going to be a dad. He was just like yeah, exciting times. How is that admitting being a dad?

Hope your both happy with the decision you guys have made.
#MixedFeelings #Congratulations !!!

Too bad it’s a boy, most likely means the baby’s going to look like his Mum:(

Mistake! Need a DNA test

wait….this article was posted Friday Jan 22 at 11:10 am eastern time…. Louis didn’t tweet until Saturday Jan 23 at 3:30 Pacific time. How did you get the headline before he even tweeted it…..????

Marlou on

Hey, I just find it ironic that this article was posted a day ago and just today Louis tweeted your title….funny. Have a great day!

Clodagh on

I’m sorry but this is the sketchiest situation I’ve ever seen. Larry aside, I seriously doubt this is anything more than a drawn out PR stunt. If the baby is Louis’, that’s great and I’ll support him…but I’m having a hard time believing that there really is a tiny Tommo when “Louis'” tweet this morning is the most enthusiasm he’s shown towards that baby during the past 9 months. That’s not the family-oriented, “as young as you are” Louis I know. Things aren’t adding up and I’m not going to blindly accept whatever narrative is being thrown to the public without evidence.
Also, nice time stamp on this article.

…why was this written on the 22nd when he didn’t actually tweet till the 23rd are you guys time travellers

Vered on

Was this article edited? It was published on Friday 11 AM but contains info that went out on Saturday.

Val on

Can we talk about the fact that this article was published 25 hours before the tweet? that’s so funny, next joke please!

That sweet little baby is here and every baby is a blessing and a miracle, even if the blessing isn’t immediately understood. But I have to say, it’s surprising that anyone could have a pregnancy accident with a rock star in 2015/16.

This isn’t a moral judgement; I get it. These men are performers because they’re silver tongued, gorgeous, charming and charismatic. I get his position, too; he’s a young man, at the height of his virility and he’s surrounded at all times by nubile, totally willing young women and if the mood hits hard, he has his pick of the bunch. These are hard instincts to fight.

But unprotected intercourse with someone who might sleep with tens of strangers in a week? Is this just a generational thing? I remember being approached by a very sweet rock star after a show I was at with my boyfriend.

If I weren’t in love with the guy I was with at the time, I have to be honest and say I might have been persuaded (though he picked-up the vibe that I wasn’t a sure thing) but to fall into an unprotected situation would have been very unlikely. This was probably ten years ago.

Maybe their situation was unexpected, too. I wish them joy in loving their new baby and that they feel gratitude for their great, random luck, all around. Starry-eyed girls, know that it doesn’t always work out this way. I think both Tomlinson and Jungwirth are aware of this and happy they’re all healthy and can still be good friends.

Guys, he had a baby and he probably isn’t gay. Get over it, celebrities have lives to and just because your favorite one if with other people doesn’t mean you have to deny it.If you were real fans you would support him, not try to make up a story or say that it’s fake, clearly he’s happy to have a son look at his twitter for proof. Congratulations to Briana and Louis, i’m sorry that some people are in denial

I am the result of a fling in the 70s, my parents loved me and raised me well. No issues here. I was meant to be. It doesn’t always turn out bad for kids, so congrats to them!

Sara Kaled on

To be honest i really cant believe this i mean first of all i never have heard Louis Tomlinson is getting married and all of the sudden i hear he becoming a dad and his baby is born yesterday. WTF . Now i really love one Direction i listen to all there music i am a biggest fan and this just turned me down but if Louis happy about it then I’ll join him and be happy too. Still I kinda feel sad for Harry Styles. I wonder how he feels about this?

Sara Kaled on

Ok so let me start this by saying that i LLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOVVVVVVVVVEEEEEEEEE one direction and all their beautiful music but once i heard about this baby i went down. first of all i never heard of Louis Tomlinson getting married and all of the sudden i hear his child is born yesterday WTF. but if Louis is happy about the baby then ill be happy too. But still i fell really sad for Harry styles. i would love to know how how feels about this baby thing.

Wow so many hypocrites and negative people here. A baby was born, I consider that a blessing whether the people are married or not, doesn’t matter some people are just hypocrites. Congrats to Louis and Briana, Being a parent is one of the toughest jobs in the world but worth it . I wish you the best of luck with your son and you will both be fine . My parents weren’t married when they had me and my brother and were doing okay, I think there son will do okay too.

How was this article written before Louis tweeted the tweet? It’s utterly impossible.

Because the original article was updated once Louis tweeted, you idiots.

People who don’t understand the internet crack me up. Articles can be updated AFTER they are created and the original creation date remains😉 The original article did not have Louis’ tweet, there’s even a comment that suggests PEOPLE wait until 1D or Louis confirms the news, because he hadn’t at the time.

thats not right

louie’s son is born but he didn’t say anything

Ooh she planned it to suck his wallet.

Veronica on

He isn’t closeting himself with this baby. Hopefully we’ll see be able to see the truth soon because many things don’t add up here.

muumi01 on

Thank you Shelly for that lovely comment!😀 Wish there was a reply option here. FYI, a large chunk of the fandom do think this is sketchy and believes Louis is gay(/bi/pan). And possibly in a relationship with his bandmate. We appreciate your comment!😉 We don’t think he’s closeting himself willingly… We think he’s either forced into it by a PR team whose contract with them will hopefully expire soon, or he’s playing along for the time being for whatever reason. And as you can see even in these comments, many of the ones who don’t believe that try guilt tripping those who do.

I’m not a “hormonal teenage girl” (what a sexist&ageist thing to say, congrats!), I’m a 28 year old woman who sees the sketchiness of this situation and has been following it closely. I just can’t put together the family-oriented man who’s very involved with charities for ill children, and this “sleazy party boy / deadbeat dad” image. Who didn’t wanna talk about this kid before those tweets. I need more evidence than 3 tweets when they’ve said themselves that management has access to their Twitter accounts. His midwife mother of seven, his sisters, his bandmates or almost anyone who knows them haven’t congratulated him on Twitter or mentioned this! Yes I know they have his phone number and might do so in private but still… If this turns out to be true, I will congratulate him and be happy for him. He’s going to be a great dad. In that case I’m guessing the baby mama might have tricked him into it and he was mad first and the thought of fatherhood took some getting used to. Oh and the question of paternity too, I’d totally get why he wouldn’t be that excited for this baby before it’s born and he can be sure that he’s the father.

This is called a one night stand people; not relationship. When you dip your pen into someone’s ink this is what happens🙂

Briana knew what she was doing, styling their hair and getting into contact with One Direction an having unprotected sex-she wanted to get pregnant, this baby was her way to get famous and rich. Louis was probably drunk or too high to put a condom on it. Louis is an idiot as well, he’s only 24 and has slept with multiple women and many fans, he does drugs and drinks a lot, his dog on tour got high on drugs in his care- some father material. I am sorry I may not be rich, cannot sing but at least I have morals and Catholic principals which I live by and I know you cannot take millions or your fame into Heaven. If Louis and Briana do not repent of their sins and if they reject Jesus Christ and his truth, they will not be spending eternity in heaven and their millions cannot buy them a spot in Heaven and Hell is very real. Unfortunately, Jesus said rich and fornicators are he last people to get to heaven and hell is a very real place. So maybe all these rich celebrities live ungodly, care free lives of carefree sex, multiple divorces, drugs, alcohol, clubbing, vacationing but they will all pay for it big time in HELL.

Meaghen Powers on

The child is the result of fornication- as many unintended pregnancies are. If guys and girls would keep their clothes on while partying/dating and save the act for the marriage bed, there would be a lot less problems in this world today and if sex was treated as something sacred and gift from God- not a right on demand things would be different. Call me old-fashioned, medieval for still thinking sex is for marriage and kissing only for dating, but Jesus Christ, the Church and the Bible support me on this one- so the Almighty is more important to me then what society thinks. As far as Briana hitting the jock pot- unless she takes him to court then who is to say that Louis will be there for Freddie during his childhood years and who is to say how much money Briana will actually get. She may get 50-60,000 a year- that’s what she would make anyway styling hair in LA. He also didn’t buy her a house- he rented her a home, and he didn’t get he natural/brand name furniture but IKEA. I am not wealthy and I wouldn’t put a baby in an IKEA crib- because those things are so flimsy and can be a safety hazard. As well, Louis chose to have unprotected sex with a girl he’s not married to- if he was a smart guy who likes to fool around he would always use a condom. Clearly there was no protection used and thus a baby was created. Both him and Briana knew what sex is and where babies come from when they hopped into bed together. They didn’t care, I mean evil Simon Cowell said MAN UP/GROW UP to Louis-yes he maybe 24 going on 25, but his behaviour demonstrates what a teenage boy would do- have a girlfriend and dump her(ELEANOR), hook up with someone get that person pregnant, then dump that person and pretend your friends(BRIANA) and hook up with someone else(DANIELLE). Danielle Campbell is out for fame herself, she knows he’s just had a baby with someone else, she knows he’s had unprotected sex with someone else, she had sex with him knowing another woman is carrying his child and just had a baby and she’s willing to date him, goes to show me she’s lacks judgement and doesn’t have much standards when it comes to the guys she dates. STRAIGHT OR GAY- doesn’t matter- some people experiment, he could also be bisexual- he still had sex with a woman that isn’t his wife or fiancé and got her pregnant- so his sexuality has nothing to do with this situation- because baby Freddie was created and exists and he looks like his daddy Louis. All we can do is pray that Louis, Briana and Danielle turn to God and ask themselves WHAT JESUS WOULD DO???? Eleanor should thank-God he ended things with her and that she’s not caught up in this mess and get herself tested for STDS, because if he had unprotected sex with Briana, whose to say he didn’t with other girls out there and with fans.
