News that Louis Tomlinson may be expecting a baby with US stylist Brianna Jungwirth has caused a meltdown among One Direction fans.

While it may not have been confirmed by the singer or his people, that hasn’t stopped thousands of Directioners from taking to Twitter to discuss the shock reports.
Unsurprisingly, many of the group’s young fans have reacted badly to the idea of their beloved Louis becoming a dad:

According to The Sun, the pregnancy was a “surprise”, but both Louis and Briana are said to both be "really happy”.
The pair dated back in May, after Louis split from long-term girlfriend Eleanor Calder, but it is believed they are no longer together.
However, The Sun and People magazine both report that the pregnancy has made their friendship “stronger”.
A spokesperson for Louis declined to comment on the reports when contacted by HuffPost UK.
