One Direction’s singer just had his first child with Briana Jungwirth, with whom he shared a brief relationship. It was a baby boy, born on Thursday, Jan. 21, in Los Angeles. The newly father was at Briana’s side during labor.
“Louis is happy and very excited about becoming a dad and he thinks Briana will be an amazing mother,” said a mutual friend of the new parents to People.
The news of the baby were announced on July and since then, the experience has brought them closer together, sources said. A friend told People Magazine that at first, the pregnancy was a surprise, but they have become very close friends ever since.
During labor, she was supported by her family and the singer. She was also spotted just before giving birth to the baby making last minute preparations, with a comforting look and make-up free. Jungwirth has been keeping a low profile for a few weeks.
The young couple met in a nightclub in the L.A. last year. Apparently the two were introduced by a mutual friend. They dated for a while after his split from long-term girlfriend Eleanor Calder on March.
One Direction has taken an extended hiatus since their last concert in U.K, so Tomlinson will have some time for his new family. Recently, he went on a special trip to L.A. to spend time with Brianna’s family.
Liam Payne, a One Direction bandmate, said in an interview that Tomlinson was very excited about what was going on at the moment, and that he was taking it very seriously. He also addressed to the new mother as a “very lovely girl.”
On Friday morning, the hashtag #WelcomeBabyTomlinson was trending and thousands of congrats were sent to the new parents. Even Brianna’s grandmother posted congrats in social media, and a sweet message and best wishes for the new parents.
