In early March, the 27-year-old One Direction star released an emotional new song about his mother's death called "Two of Us."

"You'll never know how much I miss you/The day that they took you, I wish it was me instead," Louis sings on the track. "But you once told me don't give up/You can do it day by day/And diamonds they don't turn to dust or fade away."

In an interview with Radio 1 Newsbeat, Louis shared how he used to call his mom for advice, which he mentions in the opening of the song.

"It was something I needed to get off my chest," he said. "I used to lean on my mum for a lot of things - anytime I needed advice on something she would be the first call I made."

Louis also admitted in the interview that the song was "a tough one" to play for his sisters.

Since news of Félicité's death broke, there's been an outpouring of love and support for the Tomlinson family from around the world.

"Such incredibly sad news today," James Corden tweeted. "You're not on your own in this @Louis_Tomlinson So many people are pulling for you and your family right now x."

"Prayers to Louis Tomlinson," Charlie Puth wrote on social media. "I can't imagine how hard it is right now. Love to you brother I'm so sorry and my prayers are with you."
