One Direction star Louis Tomlinson and his bandmates Harry Styles, Liam Payne, and Niall Horan brought their “On The Road Again” world tour to the U.K. last week. Tomlinson and his pals have already played six sold out dates at London’s O2 arena, and last night, One Direction played the first of two sold out shows in Manchester. Louis and the band then move on to Glasgow before visiting a number of other cities in the UK and Ireland before the tour ends in Sheffield at the end of this month.
For some time now, rumors have been circulating as to what Louis and his mates will do when One Direction split, at least temporarily, in March of next year. Tomlinson certainly has plenty to keep him busy going forward. Tomlinson is set to become a father for the first time early in the new year, and it is believed that he will be combining his fatherhood duties with building a record label and becoming a judge on Simon Cowell’s reality TV show X-Factor.
It is probably fair to say that Tomlinson’s impending fatherhood took everyone, including Louis, by surprise. Tomlinson and baby mama Briana Jungwirth are believed to have had a fairly brief relationship, and Briana’s pregnancy resulted. It seems that Tomlinson is taking fatherhood seriously, however. It has been widely reported for some time that Louis and Briana have been spending a lot of time together in an effort to work out what their relationship will look like after the baby arrives. Louis seems determined to play a full part in raising baby Tomlinson, but at present, it is not clear whether or not Louis and Briana intend to make their relationship a long-term one. Over the last few weeks, there have been signs that Louis and Briana intend to be a couple with joint responsibility for the baby.
Earlier this week, it was reported in the Inquisitr that Briana is in England with Louis and his family. Briana was seen cheering on Louis and the rest of One Direction at one of their London shows last weekend, and what is more, she was with Louis’ mother and sister. Now the Daily Mail reports that Briana was with Tomlinson’s mother at One Direction’s final London show. According to the Mirror, the 23-year-old mother-to-be looked very comfortable as as she chatted to Louis’ mother and sister in a taped off VIP area at the side of the stage.
Briana looked happy and relaxed as she watched Louis and his bandmates perform. Briana showed off her baby bump in a black outfit and had her hair tied back as she sucked on a lollipop.
It has been widely reported that Louis’ mom, Johannah Deakin, has become very friendly with Briana, and it has been suggested that Louis is looking for a house to buy close to the L.A. suburb of Calabasas, where Briana lives. At present, there is no news as to whether Louis and Briana will share that home.
Despite attending the One Direction show on Wednesday, Briana was nowhere to be seen early on Thursday morning as Louis was spotted leaving a club in the company of a number of girls. This leads to ongoing speculation that Louis and Briana are just friends with no romantic attachment. Unreality TV reports that some One Direction fans continue to insist that Briana’s pregnancy is a smokescreen to cover up the fact that Louis is in a gay relationship with bandmate Harry Styles.
