Louis Tomlinson’s son has finally shown his beautiful face and it’s precious.
Meet my little lad, Freddie ???? pic.twitter.com/nec7OqwuQR— Louis Tomlinson (@Louis_Tomlinson) January 28, 2016
Louis posted a snap of the infant on Twitter. Freddie nuzzles his shirtless dad’s chest as if he wants to hide in the crease between Louis’ pecs — this is quite fitting really, as snaps of Louis’ child are highly sought-after and Louis and Briana even had to cover the opening of the baby carrier yesterday so little Freddie could sleep in peace.

The name “Freddie” has been revealed after a number of rumors about the little lad sparked up all around the internet. Some outlets reported that the child would be called Jacob, others went with Sydney Rain. Even the unusual Conchobar (an Irish moniker pronounced “Connor”) was thrown around as a possibility that Briana and Louis were apparently considering, according to IBT.

Louis’ mother Johannah also posted a shot of Louis and Freddie.
In this version, clearly taken within the same few seconds or so, the position of Louis’ finger is different and there is more of a smile on his lips.

Louis also took a moment to send a message thanking fans and friends for nice messages.
