One Direction fans lost their minds when the news broke that Briana has given birth to Louis’s first son. The 24-year-old singer sent two tweets to confirm the news:
‘I’m pleased to say my baby son was born yesterday 🙂 He is healthy and pretty amazing, I’m very happy!!’ and ’Daddy daddy cool’
Harry Styles was the only band member to acknowledge the news so far, simply tweeting ‘flowers all round’.
A source close to Louis recently opened up on how the two are dealing with the idea of becoming parents. Louis and Briana had a brief fling and are now remaining friends as they raise a child together. The insider said:
“Although they’re not romantically involved, Louis thinks Briana is a great woman and will be a fabulous mother. Louis has been helping Briana financially and is prepared to get stuck in with all the tasks that caring for a baby demands.”
Another source commented that they’re both now happy about welcoming a child and although the news was a surprise at first, they’re excited and are planning to work together:
“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.”
