Louis Tomlinson is reportedly just weeks away from becoming a father for the first time. One Direction star Louis is supposedly expecting a baby with L.A. stylist Briana Jungwirth, with baby Tomlinson due to arrive around the end of January. Unlike most expectant fathers, Louis doesn't seem too keen on the idea of fatherhood, as he avoids the subject whenever possible. Of course, many of Louis' fans are keen for more information about baby Tomlinson, but since August, it seems that the topic is off limits.
Louis' fans will recall that Tomlinson rather awkwardly acknowledged his forthcoming fatherhood in an interview on Good Morning America in early August. Since then, Louis has remained stoically silent about baby Tomlinson. As reported here in the Inquisitr, journalists for U.K. tabloid the Sun claimed that Louis had banned the topic under threat of interviews being terminated if baby Tomlinson were mentioned.
To be fair to Tomlinson, his reported relationship with Briana Jungwirth was the briefest of affairs. It has been widely suggested that Briana's pregnancy may even have been the result of a one-night-stand. For a wide variety of reasons, many of Louis' fans do not believe that Tomlinson is the father of Briana's baby. These feelings are enhanced by the fact that Louis has not been spotted in Briana's company since the news of the pregnancy broke.
Briana has been spotted with members of Louis' family on a number of occasions, notably at Tomlinson's concerts with one Direction in London at the beginning of October. It was widely reported last week that Briana was on a shopping trip with Louis but, whilst Briana was spotted with some of his family, Tomlinson was conspicuous by his absence.
The Daily Mail reported that Louis was casually dressed in Adidas sportswear as he passed through Los Angeles' LAX airport on Monday. What they do not report is that whilst traversing the airport, Louis was approached by a fan who was keen to congratulate him on his forthcoming fatherhood.
It shows how rare news about baby Tomlinson is when a video of the encounter is posted online by X-17, who claim an exclusive with the headline "Louis Tomlinson smiles when congratulated on fatherhood." The headline is accompanied by a video showing Louis accompanied by a couple of minders keeping the fan away from Tomlinson.The video does show Tomlinson glance up at the camera on one occasion, but for the most part, Louis walks quickly through the concourse with his head down or looking straight ahead. If anything, Tomlinson looks stern and harassed, hardly surprising when he has a host of paparazzi photographers flashing cameras in his face. Louis looks anything but happy.As anyone who reads the press will know, Louis is this week being linked with actress Danielle Campbell. The Mirror reports that Tomlinson and Campbell were "cosy" as they went for a milkshake together. Many One Direction fans dismiss the story as a PR stunt in the long-running series of One Direction "winter girlfriend" romances. This time last year, the big romance story was Harry Styles drinking milkshakes with Nadine Leopold.Many of Louis' fans are convinced that Briana's pregnancy is fake, and it seems that Briana's cousin, Ashley, spoke out on Snapchat, accusing One Direction fans of hating on her family.As we have reported in the Inquisitr in the past, the truth about baby Tomlinson is far from clear. Louis' silence on the matter, and the banning of questions about baby Tomlinson, have muddied the water further still. However, there is one thing that is clear. Louis fans will not give up until they uncover the truth.
