PEOPLE also confirmed the news, and said the new parents had called their baby boy "perfect".

They reported a source close to the couple said: "Louis Tomlinson and Briana Jungwirth welcomed their first child, a son, this week in Los Angeles."

On 22 January, before it had been confirmed, One Direction fans were in a frenzy after a fan account claimed Jungwirth had given birth.

The fan account @1DExclusiveInfo claimed Briana’s own grandmother had confirmed the news.

Tomlinson has not yet confirmed the birth, however people are using the hashtag #WelcomeBabyTomlinson with congratulations messages.

And that's not all - people are already betting on the name.

Novelties Trader for Betfair, Colm Rock, said: "It seems Betfair customers aren’t quite convinced that the baby will be called Jacob which is 6/1, with a majority backing Leo at 11/2 favourite.

"The boys' names are certainly leading the charge with Johannah, Louis’ mother’s name one of the few girls name to appear at the top of the market at 8/1.

"Louis said he’d love to call the baby Lucas in a recent interview for Top of the Pops Magazine which is seeing some interest at 9/1."

It was revealed in July that the singer was expecting his first child with Jungwirth.

A mutual friend told PEOPLE at the time: "Louis is happy and very excited about becoming a dad and he thinks Briana will be an amazing mother."
