Louis Tomlinson, one of the singers in the band One Direction, and his representatives have refused to comment on a report that the One Direction is going to be a father for the first time.
Larry shippers and One Direction fans might want to cover their ears for this one - the 23-year-old singer Louis Tomilson is expecting a baby just a few months after breaking up with his longtime girlfriend. The mother? An American stylist named Briana Junwirth, who is also 23. Sources tell People that while the pair is not dating, they are close friends.

The story really starts when the singer, who hails from Doncaster, South Yorkshire, and his girlfriend, Elanor Calder, broke up around March. Tomlinson was with Calder, a dancer, for three and a half years. Two months after that break up, he was spotted out and about among town with Junwirth. Tomlinson is reported to have already told his bandmates 21-year-olds Harry Styles, Niall Horan and Liam Payne, as they are amidst a worldwide tour. The group recently had some drama because of Zayn Malik leaving the group.
Louis would be the first member of the group to have a child.
“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," a source told People exclusively. People also learned the Louis really does want to be a hands on father, and he expects to take care of the baby.
Though neither party is speaking out just yet, their friends (who act as "sources") have been saying a lot to various media outlets:
"It was obviously a surprise but they are both really happy.
"Louis and Briana have spent a lot of time together and are really close.
"Louis really cares about Briana and thinks she will be a great mum. Their friendship has got even stronger though this."
Still, fans of the band are going absolutely crazy, with some of them breaking down completely. Many of them are worried that the stylist is using Louis for his fame, but that isn't the case:
“Briana is a really lovely girl; she’s absolutely not interested in Louis’ fame. She’s very private and most of the time they spend together is out of the public eye, just hanging out with their friends.”
