Louis Tomlinson ‘Mans Up,’ Ignores Bad Dad, Meets Chicago Fire

July has been a rough month for Louis Tomlinson, but it looks like he is making it right. The big news for Louis, of course, has been his pregnancy announcement.

Despite his baby surprise, Louis has been “manning up” — as Simon Cowell recently told him to do.

Soon after learning that Briana Jungwirth was pregnant, Louis Tomlinson allegedly looked into buying her a multi-million dollar home in a gated community. This was especially important, since being pregnant with Louis Tomlinson’s child has brought Briana notoriety (and, therefore, security issues).

Although he looked a bit weathered at his show in Vancouver with One Direction on July 17, Louis Tomlinson looked “upbeat” when he arrived in Chicago a few days later.

Clearly, Louis Tomlinson has been under a lot of stress lately, and, in order to steady himself, Louis Tomlinson took some time to recharge his batteries by hanging out with fellow footballers — The Chicago Fire soccer team.

Sadly, he may have overdone it hanging out with soccer players in Chicago on July 23, and zapped his energy. Following his day with the Chicago Fire, Louis Tomlinson played a concert in Winnipeg with One Direction.

The Winnipeg Free Press wrote the following somewhat negative review of 1D’s concert on July 24.

“They had no trouble powering through the more than two hour performance with very few shaky moments to note. It’s clear, though, that one vocalist is weaker than the rest (*cough*Louis Tomlinson*cough*) who had trouble keeping up nearing the end of the show. But lucky for him, the whole really is greater than the sum of its parts, and when they all harmonize together, it’s pretty impressive.”

Also adding stress to Louis Tomlinson’s life are alleged rumors that his biological father might try to cause problems. Louis Tomlinson’s father, Tony Austin, was reported by the Mirror on July 25 as saying that he would reveal a secret to the public if Louis did not start returning his calls.

While his relationship with his biological father may be on the rocks, things are looking up for Louis Tomlinson and Briana. In the recent past, Louis Tomlinson said that he was simply friends with Briana, and they were not necessarily in a partnership.

Nevertheless, the latest rumors have revealed that they may be pursuing a relationship after all — at least in some form.

Solid evidence that Louis Tomlinson and Briana Jungwirth may be in a partnership to raise a child that has a bright future pertains to their families getting closer.

The Daily Mail reports on July 21, “Tammi [Briana’s mom] met Tomlinson’s mother Johannah Deakin when she flew to the States to meet Briana for the first time. Deakin… traveled to California with her husband Dan and both sets of parents attended Briana’s most recent ob-gyn appointment in Los Angeles.”
