Louis Tomlinson’s Boy: Baby’s Dad Or Not, He Is Committed

For fans of Louis Tomlinson’s future baby with Briana Jungwirth, there are some sad rumors going around that he might not be the father after all — but it does not mean he is out of the baby boy’s life forever.

On August 4, Vanity Fair and others reported that Louis Tomlinson has officially confirmed he was the father of Briana Jungwirth’s baby boy — but did he speak too soon?

On August 23, it was announced that Louis Tomlinson was going to take time off of One Direction in 2016 to raise his new baby, according to the Sun.

“Someone very close to Briana says Louis wasn’t the only guy she was hooking up with when she got pregnant. She was having sex with someone else at the same time, so the baby may not be Louis’.”

On September 2, Hollywood Life reports that insiders close to Louis Tomlinson claim he does not care if the baby is his or not because he was raised by his stepfather. The insider states the following about Louis Tomlinson’s commitment to Briana and the baby she carries — and they let it slip that the baby is a boy.

“Louis doesn’t want to hear about the rumors that he’s not the real father of Briana’s baby. He thinks that is crazy. He believes with all his heart he is the father. He has accepted it and is truly excited to raise him.”

What Louis Tomlinson is saying about Briana should not surprise fans since he has always been clear that they are more than ordinary friends.

For instance, while the rumors were heating up about Louis Tomlinson’s baby — the press repeatedly pointed out that Briana Jungwirth was not an acquaintance. People reports on July 14 that an insider to Louis Tomlinson and Briana Jungwirth told them the following.

“Louis is happy and very excited about becoming a dad and he thinks Briana will be an amazing mother. It was a surprise at first, but he and Briana are very, very close friends and this has brought them even closer.”

In other words, even if it turns out that Louis Tomlinson is not the father of Briana Jungwirth’s baby — he may still be a close enough friend that he decides to stay in the baby’s life without being in a relationship with the mum. Although Louis Tomlinson may not assume the role of father, many single men with friends raising children become active in the child’s life by being becoming adoptive uncles or godfathers.

Alternatively, if Louis Tomlinson decides to drop out of raising Briana’s baby, it might mean Harry Styles is not mad at him anymore. UnReality TV reported on August 13 that during their Good Morning America interview, Harry Styles awkwardly “went quiet” during questions about Louis Tomlinson’s future baby.
