After the news of One Direction baby, the hashtag #WelcomeBabyTomilson started trending on Twitter. The news was first out on The Sun newspaper. The website also added that Jungwirth delivered their son in a Los Angeles hospital. The 24-year-old musician was by her former partner’s side at the time of the baby’s birth. No further details have yet been released.
“Louis is happy and very excited about becoming a dad and he thinks Briana will be an amazing mother,” a source close to the singer told People.
The website also reported that Jungwirth’s mother and grandmother have only revealed the news to the close family members. The rumour mills began working on the One Direction baby news after a fan account of 1 D claimed Louis’ grandmother congratulated him.

However, there is no official confirmation on One Direction baby from Tomlinson or Jungwirth’s side.
Tomlinson and Jungwirth dated only briefly and are no longer in any relationship. However, the baby has allegedly gotten the two together and Tomlinson also went to spend some time with Jungwirth and her family earlier. The singer, who is currently dating American actress Danielle Campbell, has reportedly relocated to Los Angeles to be closer to Jungwirth and his child.
The source also told The Sun that Tomlinson wants to be a “hands-on” dad.
“Louis and Briana have spent a lot of time together and are really close. Louis really cares about Briana and thinks she will be a great mum. Their friendship has got even stronger though this,” said the source.
“Louis is being very protective of her and making sure she takes it easy…Louis is really excited about becoming a dad,” it added.
