Louis Tomlinson is one of the luckiest young lads in the world being a member of One Direction, but he was made to feel even more special when he woke this morning on his 21st birthday from lovely messages from his bandmates and girlfriend, Eleanor Calder.
The 'Live While We're Young' singer was flooded with birthday messages on Twitter, mostly from fans and his One Direction bandmates who are all with their families preparing for the Christmas period.

One of the first to wake up the handsome birthday boy was his bessie and bandmate Niall Horan, who tweeted: "Massive HAPPY BIRTHDAY to one of my best friends @Louis_Tomlinson 21 today! Have a great time buddie and I will see you in the new year!" Zayn Malik added: "Happy birthday @Louis_Tomlinson, love ya bro!!!"
Louis himself tweeted shortly after the clock chimed 12: "Ahhhhh I'm 21 !! IT'S MY BIRTHDAYYYYY AHHHHH. Ahhhhh I'm old !!!!!" The singer's model girlfriend Eleanor Calder wrote a sweet message alongside a photo of the two posing on the beach.
"Happy Birthday Louis Tomlinson. I love you," Eleanor tweeted. Louis' mum Jay Tomlinson also wrote a rather touching message on Instagram, reminiscing about the day she gave birth to the heart throb.
"Can't believe my little boy is turning 21 so soon. I'm so pleased on what a lovely man he has turned into," Jay wrote.
"Little did I know, 21 years ago, that tomorrow I would meet the best boy in the world #proudmum."
Missing from the birthday love-in was Louis' other bandmates Liam Payne and Harry Styles, with the latter most likely too busy with his new girlfriend Taylor Swift whom he has been spending the festivities with in the US.
Happy Birthday Louis! You are now a fully-fledged man!
