Louis Tomlinson 'wants to bring up baby in UK' despite mum Briana living in LA

Louis Tomlinson is said to be keen for his baby to be raised in the UK.
The One Direction heartthrob is set to become a father for the first time with his close friend Briana Jungwirth, who is reportedly due to give birth in February 2016. The blonde stylist resides in Los Angeles, but Louis is apparently hoping he can bring his little one back home to England following the birth.
"The baby will be born in the States, but Louis has asked Briana if she'll consider a temporary move to the UK when the baby is a few months old," an insider told Britain's Closer magazine. "They haven't agreed on anything yet - but Briana isn't ruling it out."
It's thought the pair had a brief encounter in May and news that Louis was to be a dad broke in July (15). The two haven't moved their friendship forward into a relationship but remain close, with Briana attending one of their On the Road Again shows in London in October.
Louis has been busy with his band as of late, as they perform the last of their concerts before going on hiatus in 2016. He also had a brief appearance on the UK version of The X Factor, joining music mogul Simon Cowell during the Judges' Houses round of the competition. It was recently revealed Louis, 23, had messaged one of the contestants, Louisa Johnson, but she insisted he was simply wishing her luck.
"Louis swears he wasn't flirting with Louisa and just wanted to wish her well for the show," the insider added. "He doesn't know what is happening with Briana yet, or if they'll try to be a proper couple."
