Louis Tomlinson, a singer in the boyband One Direction, is expecting a baby with a Los Angeles-based stylist following a brief relationship, it has been claimed.
The 23-year-old is reportedly “delighted” that Briana Jungwirth is having his baby.
Miss Jungwirth, also 23, is said to be around 11 weeks pregnant and Tomlinson reportedly flew to Los Angeles ten days ago to present for a scan.
A friend of the pair told The Sun: “It was obviously a surprise but they are both really happy. Louis and Briana have spent a lot of time together and are really close. Louis really cares about Briana and thinks she will be a great mum. Their friendship has got even stronger though this.”
The couple, who are not in a relationship, are said to have been introduced through mutual friends following Tomlinson’s split from his long-term girlfriend Eleanor Calder in March.
Tomlinson’s mother Johanna and step-father Dan reportedly met Miss Jungwirth’s parents in July.
Representatives for Tomlinson have declined to comment.
