Louis Tomlinson and Briana Jungwirth’s baby news was just confirmed by another source. Liam Payne shared his thoughts about his bandmate becoming a dad, and he also revealed how he feels about Briana. Unsurprisingly, Directioners are losing their minds over Liam’s comments.
Louis Tomlinson and Briana Jungwirth haven’t addressed the baby reports themselves, which is giving some One Direction fans false hope that the news isn’t true. However, during an interview with London’s Magic Radio, Liam didn’t shy away from the topic of Briana’s pregnancy, and it even seemed as though Louis had given him permission to talk about it.
According to Digital Spy, Liam told Magic host Jo Parkerson that he was shocked when he learned that Louis Tomlinson was about to become a dad. However, Liam said that Louis actually took the news pretty well. It sounds like it didn’t take the singer long to accept that his life is about to change in a very big way, and he’s actually looking forward to being a father.
“Well obviously I was a bit shocked but he’s taken super well to it,” Payne said. “And he’s very excited with what’s going on with him at the moment and I feel that stuff like that happens sometimes… he’s taking it very seriously.”
Instead of trying to run away from his responsibilities like some unwed fathers do, Louis Tomlinson is embracing Briana Jungwirth’s surprise pregnancy and doing everything he can to prepare for his child’s arrival. According to PEOPLE, this includes purchasing a new house in Los Angeles near Briana’s home. Tomlinson’s family has also spent some time getting to know Jungwirth’s family, and the mommy-to-be has reportedly grown close to Louis’ mother, Johannah. Johannah is a midwife who has given birth to seven children, so she should be able to provide Briana with plenty of helpful pregnancy tips.
Briana Jungwirth hasn’t just charmed her way into Johannah’s heart — Liam Payne is also a fan of the 23-year-old stylist.
“Yeah she’s really nice, she’s a lovely girl,” Liam said during his Magic interview.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Simon Cowell has confirmed that Louis’ baby news is true. However, many Directioners still refuse to believe that Louis Tomlinson and Briana Jungwirth are expecting a baby. They previously tried to claim that Briana has no baby bump, and now, they’re speculating that Liam’s interview with Magic Radio was digitally spliced together. These 1D conspiracy theorists believe that the “lovely girl” comment was actually referencing Zayn Malik’s fiancee, Perrie Edwards, and it was cut from an interview Liam gave shortly after Zayn and Perrie got engaged.
IN THAT INTERVIEW ABOUT “BRIANA” LIAM IS TALKING ABOUT PERRIE, IF THE MEDIA SEES US FLIP ABOUT IT THEY’RE GOING TO EDIT A RECORDED AUDIO.

It’s true that Liam doesn’t mention Louis or Briana by name, and he never says the word “baby.” However, his comment about how “stuff like that happens sometimes” seems to imply that he’s talking about a happy little accident, not an engagement. The Mirror reports that the audio snippets circulating online are part of a longer interview that will air on Magic Radio this Saturday. Liam also talks about Zayn Malik’s departure from One Direction in the full-length interview.
Do you think Liam’s interview about Louis Tomlinson and Briana Jungwirth was partially edited using old audio clips?
