It’s Freddie Reign Tomlinson. That is the name of One Direction Louis Tomlinson’s new bundle of joy.
The British singer introduced his new born baby to the world and fans were thrilled to catch a glimpse of the little boy.
Tomlinson shared on Twitter the first photo of his baby. He captioned the black and white photo: “Meet my little lad, Freddie.” His post revealed the official name of his son, contrary to earlier reports that he will be called Sydney Rain.
Soon after the photo was posted online, “Freddie” became the top global trending topic for hours on Thursday morning, Telegraph noted.

Tomlinson expressed his gratitude to all well wishers.
Freddie’s mother is Tomlinson’s former partner and stylist Briana Jungwirth. In July, news on her pregnancy was made known to the public. Jungwirth gave birth on January 21, People Magazine noted.
She also shared a photo of her with Freddie in her arms while in the hospital.
People Magazine quoted a mutual friend of the pair saying: “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.”
The pair met through mutual friends after Tomlinson’s split from his long-term girlfriend Eleanor Calder in March. Louis is now dating American actress Danielle Campbell, Telegraph noted.
It was earlier reported that Tomlinson will provide child support for Freddie.
According to The Sun, the 1D member has agreed to pay close to £10,000 monthly for Freddie. Tomlinson will pay over £2.1 million until 2034 when his son turns 18. He will also give an additional £5,750 for other necessities of the baby like clothes and toys.
Aside from monetary support, Louis Tomlinson also moved to the US because he wants to be a hands-on father to his son.
