One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson has become a father, reports said yesterday, weeks after the British boy band went on hiatus.

Los Angeles-based stylist Briana Jungwirth gave birth on Thursday (21st January) to a son, the first child for both of them, People magazine and Entertainment Tonight reported, quoting anonymous friends.

A representative for Tomlinson did not respond to a request for comment.


But Mark Tomlinson, who raised the singer as his stepfather, seemed to confirm the news when he wrote on Twitter:

The 24-year-old singer and Jungwirth had a brief relationship and are said by celebrity magazines to remain on good terms.

The two got together after Tomlinson parted with longtime girlfriend Eleanor Calder. Tomlinson has been linked in recent weeks to 20-year-old American actress Danielle Campbell.

One Direction emerged in 2010 on the British television contest “The X Factor” and since then has been one of the world’s top-selling bands, packing arenas with screaming teenagers.

The band in November declared a hiatus until further notice as it released its 5th studio album, “Made in the A.M“.


One Direction’s once squeaky-clean image was dented last year with the departure of Zayn Malik, who later denounced his former bandmates for making “generic” music.

UPDATE (24th January, 12:30am):

After much speculation, Louis Tomlinson himself took to his Twitter to confirm the arrival of his baby son. He’s the first One Direction member to become a father although there’s no word on a name for his child as yet.

Aww, he’s so happy! Congratulations on entering daddyhood, Louis 🙂
