Louis Tomlinson finally broke his silence on Twitter after going radio silent when the news hit that he’s expecting a baby with Briana Jungwirth.
Tomlinson has kept a low profile since the news of his impending new role, but he is still obligated to participate in his One Direction responsibilities. Currently, the pop vocal group is on a tour, and Tomlinson was on stage with the guys last night for a show in Seattle.
After the show, Tomlinson tweeted about the experience and thanked his 20 million followers for the support in a short and sweet tweet.
Amazing show! Thank you for the support!!

During the concert, fans also held up signs that said, “Louis is the baby a TomlinSON or a tomlinDAUGHTER.”
Prior to the concert, Louis made his first appearance boarding a plane at LAX before stopping in Seattle for the concert.
An insider told Us Weekly about the unexpected news.
“Louis didn’t expect this, but he’s excited for it now. He’s become very close friends with Briana this year and now they are looking forward to being parents. He’s definitely going to be there and be a great dad for their baby.”
As for his relationship with Briana Jungwirth, sources say that they aren’t together. “They aren’t together, but are both happy about having a child. They aren’t a couple and the pregnancy is in the very new [stages]. They just found out.”
As the Inquisitr reported, Louis told mentor Simon Cowell about the news three weeks ago when he first found out.
“Simon was absolutely delighted for Louis and told him that becoming a dad was the best thing that had ever happened to him. He told him if he ever needed any advice to let him know.”
