Add another chapter to the story of Louis Tomlinson’s life, the One Direction singer is going to be a dad!
The 23-year-old pop star is expecting a baby with Los Angeles-based stylist Briana Jungwirth, a source confirms to ET.
"Louis is happy and very excited about becoming a dad and he thinks Briana will be an amazing mother," a friend of the couple told ET. "It was a surprise at first, but he and Briana are very, very close friends and this has brought them even closer."
The boy band singer met Jungwirth, also 23, earlier this year through mutual friends. Tomlinson was spotted on multiple dates with the stylist in the spring, after splitting from long-time girlfriend Eleanor Calder in March.
"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," the friend said, adding that Tomlinson has vowed to be a "hands-on dad" and is reportedly looking at properties in Los Angeles. People was first to break the news.
