Louis Tomlinson’s big baby news recently upset a large number of One Direction fans, and things definitely aren’t getting any better for distraught Directioners — now they’re being mocked.
Iron Man 3 actress Rebecca Hall recently poured salt in these Directioners’ very fresh wounds by poking fun at their reactions to the news that Louis Tomlinson is expecting his first child with his stylist pal, Briana Jungwirth. According to Gossip Cop, fans freaked out after learning that Tomlinson had knocked up one of his friends, and many of them became upset with Louis for remaining silent about his shocking baby situation.
Funny or Die decided to poke fun at the devastation caused by Louis’ sperm donation by casting British Rebecca Hall as a Directioner. In her Funny or Die video, Rebecca pretends to cry before pointing out that Briana Jungwirth’s pregnancy is sad proof that Louis Tomlinson had sex with someone who isn’t an “Adult Directioner” like her. She also frets about the future of One Direction, speculating that Louis Tomlinson’s baby will be the one who breaks up the band, not Zayn Malik.
“Harry, Niall, and Liam can be the fun uncles, but you can’t be in a boy band if you’re a dad. Do we call him dad now?”
Many 1D fans refer to Liam Payne as “Daddy Directioner,” but now he doesn’t exactly seem like the member of the band most deserving of that nickname.
Rebecca goes on to say that Louis’ baby can replace Zayn Malik by joining the band, and she tries to start a fan war by daring to mention Larry Stylinson. As the Inquisitr previously reported, Louis isn’t a fan of the One Direction fans who think that he and Harry Styles are secretly gay lovers.
“I’ve got to be honest, I really wanted that Larry thing to be true,” Rebecca Hall says in the video below. “I don’t think there’s any shame in that. Louis and Harry in a couple — I think that’s hot. They should still do that if they’re curious.”
According to the Daily Mail, Louis Tomlinson and baby mama Briana Jungwirth first met at a Los Angeles nightclub. The pretty blonde caught Louis’ eye, so he sent his bodyguard to fetch her. Their initial meeting didn’t lead to a love connection, but they’ve remained close friends. Louis was initially shocked when he learned that Briana was going to have a baby, but he’s reportedly excited about becoming a dad.
Louis Tomlinson’s bandmates also had to be pretty surprised when they heard his big baby news. According to Metro, Louis and the other members of the group once agreed that Niall Horan would be the first 1Der to become a father.
“Niall often makes decisions and regrets them and tries to weave his way out of them,” Louis said during a 2013 interview.
At least Louis Tomlinson isn’t trying to “weave his way out” of fatherhood.
