Louis Tomlinson 41822

Whoa, baby! One Direction's Louis Tomlinson, 23, is expecting a baby with LA-based stylist Briana Jungwirth, also 23, reports. (And yes, that's the sound of hearts breaking around the world.)

The site quotes a mutual friend of the couple, saying, "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." The same source adds that while Tomlinson and Jungwirth aren't in a relationship, he has vowed to be a hands-on dad.

Apparently, the two met after through mutual friends earlier this year. Tomlinson and his girlfriend of four years, Eleanor Calder, broke up in March.

According to Page Six, Tomlinson's rep declined to comment on the news. But the baby is said to be due in early 2016.

Congrats to the mom- and dad-to be!
