The four-piece band took to the stage in Vancouver, Canada, on Friday night as part of their On The Road Again world tour.

Their show comes just days after it was revealed that Louis Tomlinson is set to become a father for the first time after long-term friend Briana Jungwirth fell pregnant.

And as Liam spotted a pregnant fan in the audience of the gig, he asked the rest of the crowd to come up with some ideas for baby names – which Louis was no doubt listening intently to.

“Boys, any boy names for a boy who is being born?” Liam asked the audience. “Congratulations by the way."

Among the suggestions from the audience was Alfred, before Harry Styles suggested she should name her son after him.

“Obviously you've got some good names there but Liam would probably be the best name,” he told the unidentified fan.

"Congratulations and I hope you get a good name, don't just name the band names, they were rubbish."

Following the news that Louis is to become a parent, it was revealed that the 23-year-old was shocked but thrilled by the impending change to his life.

And while the status of his relationship with Briana is still unknown, the Los Angeles based stylist was seen in the audience at the band’s gig on Friday night.
