Briana Jungwirth was spotted for the first time since news broke that she is expecting a baby with One Direction singer Louis Tomlinson, but friends close to the Los Angeles stylist said she is trying to keep a very low profile amid the pregnancy news that many have found shocking.
News broke this week that the 23-year-old Jungwirth is pregnant with Tomlinson’s child. The two reportedly met shortly after Tomlinson split with longtime girlfriend Eleanor Calder, and they have been very close since the pregnancy news. Sources say Louis has even been looking at homes near Jungwirth and went along with her to the ultrasound appointments so far.
“Louis and Briana care about each other very much and have spent a lot of time together privately over the last few months,” a source told People earlier this week. “They are both really happy and although they aren’t in a relationship, their friendship is extremely strong and they are both really excited about the baby. It’s early days and Briana and the baby’s health are the most important things right now.”
While many One Direction fans reacted to the news with shock and some with disappointment, it appears that Jungwirth is far from a fame seeker.
“Briana is a really lovely girl; she’s absolutely not interested in Louis’ fame,” the source told People. “She’s very private and most of the time they spend together is out of the public eye, just hanging out with their friends.”
In fact, it was Louis who sought out Briana after seeing her on a night out.
Hollywood Life recounted how he first approached her.
“‘Come with me, my boy wants to talk to you,’ Louis’ personal bodyguard allegedly said to Briana after the One Direction singer laid his eyes on her while out one night, reports the Daily Mail. Apparently, this super romantic moment in which Louis attempted to sweep Briana off of her feet via his security guard took place inside an L.A. nightclub in May 2015.”
Sources say Briana Jungwirth has been trying to keep a low profile since the pregnancy news broke, and she was just spotted late this week for the first time since the world found out about her pregnancy.
“Briana is staying away from home for the moment; she’s a private girl — she doesn’t even have any social media. Everyone’s hoping she can have a smooth pregnancy in peace. That’s the most important thing for everyone right now,” a friend said at the time.
Louis Tomlinson and Briana Jungwirth are expecting their baby sometime early next year.
