Doncaster pop star Louis Tomlinson is set to become a dad, according to national newspaper reports.
The 23-year-old One Direction star is apparently expecting a baby with American stylist Briana Jungwirth, also 23, according to The Sun.
The star reportedly had a series of dates with her in Los Angeles in May, two months after his split with long-term girlfriend Eleanor Calder.
He would be the first member of the group to have a child.
Tomlinson is reported to have already told his bandmates Harry Styles, Niall Horan and Liam Payne the news.
A friend of Tomlinson and Jungwirth is quoted in The Sun as saying: “Louis is really excited about becoming a dad.
“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.
Tomlinson was with Calder, a dancer, for three and a half years.
They reportedly split in early March having grown apart as he spent months on tour with the biggest boyband in the world.
