Louis Tomlinson is going in a very different direction than most 23-year-old boy band members: he’s going to be a dad! The ‘One Direction’ member and a close friend of his, Briana Jungwirth, are expecting a child together.
A mutual friend of both Louis and Briana told People:
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.”
Louis and Briana, who’s an LA-based stylist, started hanging out after he split from his long-term girlfriend, Eleanor Calder, last March.
Despite his busy career, Louis reportedly plans to be a “hands-on” father. He’s said to be looking at properties in LA near Briana.
Louis and Briana care about each other very much and have spent a lot of time together privately over the last few months. They are both really happy and although they aren’t in a relationship, their friendship is extremely strong and they are both really excited about the baby. It’s early days and Briana and the baby’s health are the most important things right now.
“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.”
Louis and Briana’s parents met over the fourth of July holiday weekend. They reportedly “hit it off” and are said to be “excited and totally supportive.”
I’m glad to hear that: it will be helpful to Louis and Briana to have their support. Congratulations!
