Louis Tomlinson Finally Confirms Impending Fatherhood on ‘Good Morning America’
Father's Day 2016 will officially have one more high-profile beneficiary.
After rumors erupted in July that Louis Tomlinson and Briana Jungwirth were expecting a baby together, Tomlinson, a member of One Direction, confirmed his impending fatherhood for the first time to Michael Strahan on Good Morning America today (August 4).
"Louis, from one father to another I want to congratulate you on your upcoming fatherhood. So how are you feeling?" the LIVE with Kelly and Michael co-host asks in the segment above amid a deafening cry of a sea of Directioners.
"Thank you. Obviously it’s a very exciting time. So thank you," Tomlinson replies earnestly as the screaming continues. And just like that, the world has spun off of its axis...
According to People, Tomlinson met Jungwirth, a Los Angeles-based stylist, through mutual friends earlier this year after Tomlinson's breakup with Eleanor Calder in March. He and Jungwirth dated through the spring, and the site says Tomlinson is even scouting properties in California to be closer to his new small family.
And while the One Direction family is growing in one respect, it's also downsized in the last year, as member Zayn Malik quit the band in March, noting he sought a career that involved a different sound.
"It’s not that I’ve turned my back on [the band] or anything, it’s just that I just can’t do that anymore because it’s not real to me," he told The Sun shortly after his departure.
