Playing One Direction's Liam Payne on Louis Tomlinson's Baby News: 'I Was Obviously a Bit Shocked'

Though One Direction's Louis Tomlinson has yet to directly speak out on the news that he's becoming a dad, his bandmate, Liam Payne, just confirmed it for him in a candid new interview.

Speaking with British radio station Magic FM, 21-year-old Liam admitted the baby news was a shock even to him, but also said that 23-year-old Louis was "very excited" about becoming a parent with Los Angeles-based stylist Briana Jungwirth.

"Well I was, quite obviously, a bit shocked, you know," Liam acknowledged about finding out the surprising news. "But he's taken super well to it. And he's excited; he's very excited about what's going on with him at the moment."

"And sometimes stuff happens like that," he added. "And not [like] it's a small deal … You know, he's taking it very seriously, so it's all good."

As for his thoughts on Briana, Liam gave his seal of approval, calling her "a lovely girl."

Last month, a family source told ET that Briana is actually no longer in Los Angeles -- but her relocation may only be temporary as Louis is reportedly looking at properties in the L.A.-area. The two met earlier this year through friends.

"Louis is happy and very excited about becoming a dad and he thinks Briana will be an amazing mother," a mutual friend of the couple also told ET. "It was a surprise at first, but he and Briana are very, very close friends and this has brought them even closer."
