One Direction's Louis Tomlinson Is Expecting a Baby With 'Good Friend' Briana Jungwirth

Hold on to your hats! One Direction member Louis Tomlinson is going to be a daddy. A pregnancy announcement was maybe the last thing we were expecting from the British boy band member, and apparently it came as quite a shock to him and his baby mama Briana Jungwirth as well.

The 23-year-olds reportedly met earlier this year, after Tomlinson's split with long time girlfriend Eleanor Calder in March. They were spotted on several dates together in May, but they claim to be just good friends and not in a relationship.

Even so, they are both very excited for this next step and plan to be involved parents in this child's life. A mutual friend of the parents-to-be told People magazine, "Louis is happy and very excited about becoming a dad and he thinks Briana will be an amazing mother. It was a surprise at first, but he and Briana are very, very close friends and this has brought them even closer."

Tomlinson is even reportedly looking for a place near Briana's L.A. digs and has flown around the world to be with her for every ultrasound so far. He's committed to being a "hands-on dad" when the baby is born early next year.

The friend said of the pair, "Louis and Briana care about each other very much and have spent a lot of time together privately over the last few months ... They are both really happy and although they aren't in a relationship, their friendship is extremely strong and they are both really excited about the baby. It's early days and Briana and the baby's health are the most important things right now."

I think they're being really wise to concentrate on their friendship right now, instead of going all-in on the romantic front. It will be so much better for this kiddo to have co-parents who are friends first, regardless of whether or not they eventually become life partners.

It does sound like this girl is a keeper though. The insider said, "Briana is a really lovely girl; she's absolutely not interested in Louis's fame. She's very private and most of the time they spend together is out of the public eye, just hanging out with their friends."

Best of luck to these two -- it sounds like they have their heads on straight, despite the surprise. I bet they're going to be great parents.
