The first 1D baby is here!

One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson is officially a father. He and longtime friend Briana Jungwirth welcomed their first child, a son, on Thursday (Jan. 21, 2016) in Los Angeles, a source confirms to People.

The news that Louis was going to be a dad was confirmed back in July after the former couple had a brief relationship in May 2015 following his split from longtime girlfriend Eleanor Calder. Now, Louis is dating The Originals actress Danielle Campbell.

The singer’s former stepfather, Mark Tomlinson, also tweeted on Friday morning what appeared to be a confirmation of the baby news. “Is that the patter of tiny feet?” he wrote on Twitter.

“Louis is happy and very excited about becoming a dad and he thinks Briana will be an amazing mother,” a mutual friend of the two told People back in July. “It was a surprise at first, but he and Briana are very, very close friends and this has brought them even closer.” Since he and One Direction are taking a well-deserved break, we’re sure he’ll have a lot of time to be an amazing dad to his new baby boy.

Now, we need to patiently wait for the new parents to announce the baby’s name! Louis Junior sounds cute.
