Louis Tomlinson is 'surprised but happy' at baby news, wants to be a 'hands on dad'
One Direction's Louis Tomlinson is said to be "surprised, but thrilled" over becoming a first time father.
News broke last night that the superstar singer was expecting a child with "close friend" Briana Jungwirth, a budding stylist.
And the 23-year-old boybander is already taking a hands on approach as he flew to her side last week for their first baby scan.
"It was obviously a surprise but they are both really happy," a source told The Sun.
"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 through this."
Louis split with long-term girlfriend Eleanor Calder in March and was pictured partying with Briana in May.
He is said to be looking at suitable properties in Los Angeles for the expectant mum and their child.
"It's early days and the most important thing is Briana's health," the insider added to the newspaper.
"Louis is being very protective of her and making sure she takes it easy. Louis is really excited about becoming a dad.
"Briana is a very private person and she and Louis have enjoyed hanging out over the last few months out of the public eye.
"Although they aren't in a relationship, they have a strong bond and are both focused on the baby."
His mother Johannah, a midwife, is said to be excited at becoming a grandmother and has been given the mother-to-be, believed to be at the 11 weeks mark, pregnancy tips.
