One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson spoke out for the first time on becoming a dad. After the band’s performance for Good Morning America on Tuesday (August 4), Michael Strahan threw the 23-year-old the question.
He said, “Louis, from one father to another I want to congratulate you on your upcoming fatherhood. So how are you feeling?”
“Thank you,” Tomlinson replied. “Obviously it’s a very exciting time. So thank you.”
The singer is expecting his first child with Briana Jungwirth, 23. They are not in a relationship.
US Weekly reports a source previously said, “Louis didn’t expect this, but he’s excited for it now. He’s become very close friends with Briana this year and now they are looking forward to being parents. He’s definitely going to be there and be a great dad for their baby.”
Tomlinson’s mom Johannah Deakin met Jungwirth in July. The pregnant stylist lives with her mother and stepfather in Calabasas.
The British boy band singer will surely get lots of parenting advice from his mom. Deakin has seven children in all, including one-year-old twins.
