Louis Tomlinson fans have been bemused since it was announced that the One Direction star was to become a father. Many fans doubted that Tomlinson was to become a father. Suspicions were heightened after Louis’ baby mama Briana Jungwirth posted social media messages claiming that she was not pregnant. As previously reported in The Inquisitr Tomlinson has never spoken publicly about Jungwirth and has said virtually nothing about baby Tomlinson. According to the Sun Tomlinson even banned reporters from asking questions about the baby.
As the world is now aware baby Tomlinson is reported to have arrived yesterday. As we reported in Inquisitr the announcement that baby Tomlinson had arrived was made in an incredibly bizarre way. Rather than the usual press or TV interview the news of baby Tomlinson’s arrival was made on Instragram by a woman claiming to be Briana’s grandmother. Louis himself stayed silent though he did appear to show a hospital bracelet on his wrist when he visited Sunglass Hut.
After 24-hours of silence, it seems that Tomlinson has now spoken out to confirm that he is a father. According to the BBC Louis took to Twitter at around 4 a.m Los Angeles time to announce the arrival of baby Tomlinson. In the announcement on the social media platform Tomlinson said “my baby son was born yesterday. He is healthy and pretty amazing. I’m very happy.”
I'm pleased to say my baby son was born yesterday 🙂 ???? He is healthy and pretty amazing 🙂 I'm very happy!!

A second message was sent from Tomlinson’s account a few minutes later that simply quoted a song lyric and said “daddy, daddy cool.” Louis’ bandmate Harry Styles appeared to mark the announcement of baby Tomlinson’s arrival in typically enigmatic style when he tweeted “flowers all round.”
There has never been any official statement made by either Louis or his management team regarding Briana’s pregnancy or the birth of baby Tomlinson. The fact that Louis was attending a party last night has lead many of his fans to believe that the Twitter messages on Tomlinson’s account were posted by his management team rather than by Louis.

It is highly likely that Louis is well aware of the controversy news of Briana’s pregnancy caused. His silence on the matter is seen by many as an indication that Louis did not believe that he was the father of Briana’s baby. With so much rumor and speculation, it seems odd that Tomlinson has never spoken out to make it clear he was to be a dad or to defend Briana from rumors. Tomlinson comes from a large and loving family and his charitable efforts demonstrate that Louis loves children. Fans struggle to understand why Louis has never, at least until now, acknowledged something that by any measure is a huge life-event.
Whilst many of Louis fans are still in a spin about the baby news it seems that pictures are being posted on social media that claim to show Louis’ baby but they are believed to be fake.

Louis’ fans will doubtless continue to wonder why what should be an incredibly happy event has been so badly handled from start to finish. Tomlinson’s management and PR team have let him down badly and caused a lot of confusion and hurt to everyone involved, fans included.
One thing is for sure, however. Louis Tomlinson is adored by the fans who recognise him to be an incredibly kind, caring, and generous young man. Tomlinson’s fans and One Direction fans in general are renowned as being incredibly loyal to “their boys.” You can be sure that Louis’ fans will put aside the confusion and mismanagement of the last six months and rally behind Tomlinson as he moves forward with all he has to deal with in the coming months.
