Louis Tomlinson, one of the four members of One Direction, is expecting a baby with friend and stylist Briana Jungwirth, People reported.

The 23-year-old Brit, who split with longtime girlfriend Eleanor Calder in March, was reportedly introduced to Jungwirth, 23, by mutual friends earlier this year, and they were spotted together briefly in May.


Tomlinson has had some practice with newborns recently — his mom, Johanna, had twins named Ernest and Doris in February 2014.

It's been a busy year in the news for the One Directioners, with member Zayn Malik quitting the band in March. The band is currently touring the United States.

The news immediately inspired a slew of emotional tweets from fans on social media.


How am I supposed to focus on work when all I can think about is Louis' one night stand gone wrong!?

@Louis_Tomlinson you better explain this whole baby drama because I thought I was going to be the only child in the family😢


And, of course, some jokes.

Louis' lady got 1D at least once, eh?


Plot twist: She's just Louis and Harry's surrogate

In a strange twist, Tomlinson actually tweeted that he was going to be a dad in 2012 for April Fool's Day.

Can't believe I'm going to be a Dad! Wow!!

Maybe he's psychic?

A spokesperson for Tomlinson declined to comment to BuzzFeed News.

Reached by a BuzzFeed News reporter at home, a relative of Jungwirth's said they knew as much as what was reported in the People story, and that they had been told not to talk to the media and to give Jungwirth “peace and quiet."
