Unconfirmed internet chatter is speculating that
the singer and LA stylist Briana Jungwirth are first-time parents.
One Direction star Louis Tomlinson is the first member of the British boy band to reportedly become a dad.
Louis, 24, confirmed in August that he and Briana, who are not currently together, were expecting a baby.
Now, One Direction fan Twitter account, @1DExclusiveInfo, claims that Briana’s grandmother confirms she has given birth to a baby boy.
While it’s difficult to verify the account, Briana, 23, has been posting up a storm on Instagram about her impending birth.
“So ready for you my love!” She declared five days in a post accompanied by her burgeoning baby bump.
It's believed that Louis and Briana met in a LA club Bootsy Bellows, when a friend introduced them.
The pair embarked on a short fling, which is said to have ended before Briana discovered she was expecting.
At first, One Direction's notoriously protective fans questioned Briana's motivation when she hooked up with Louis.
But it soon emerged that while she vaguely enjoyed the band's music, she was no fan girl! In fact, she had only "recently been to a concert" before being introduced to Louis through a mutual friend.
The pair are no longer together, however sources close to both Louis and Briana insist they plan to raise their baby amicably.
"Although they're not romantically involved, Louis thinks Briana is a great woman and will be a fabulous mother," a source tells The Daily Mail.
Louis is currently said to be dating Disney actress Danielle Campbell.
