Louis Tomlinson is preparing for his life to head into a very new direction.
The One Direction singer is going to be a dad, E! News confirms. The 23-year-old crooner and Los Angeles-based stylist Briana Jungwirth are expecting a child together, and a source tells us the duo are "super excited about it."
These soon-to-be parents met through mutual friends earlier this year after Tomlinson's split from longtime girlfriend Eleanor Calder. And although Jungwirth and Louis weren't said to be a couple, the boy bander has expressed that he will be a very "hands on" dad and by her side throughout the pregnancy, according to People, who first broke the story.
"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 mutual friend of the couple told the mag.
