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.
Australian actress Teresa Palmer and her husband Mark Webber took Bodhi, 18 months, out for dinner in Silverlake, Calif. on Monday (August 3).
Palmer has just completed filming the John Hillcoat crime drama Triple Nine. She also has other movies in the works including The Choice,Message From The King, and 2:22.
Her more anticipated film Point Break will be released Christmas day.
Last year Palmer told Popsugar how motherhood has changed the way she looks at her body.
She said, “I look at myself in the mirror now instead of looking at flaws. I look at this woman, this mother who is so nurturing and loving to her son and I look at myself through the eyes of my child. It’s been a healthy shift.”
Kourtney Kardashian and Mason, 5, went shopping together at Trico Field in Beverly Hills, Calif. on Monday (August 3). Mason looked adorable waving his arm around. He sported a cute shirt reading “Le Petite Rebelle”.
Since splitting with Scott Disick last month, Kourtney has hired attorney Laura Wasser to fight for sole custody and her fortune.
A source told Radar Online, “Scott is ready to fight her for what he believes is half his. And he may be right. Kourtney knows that Scott carried the storyline for years and he is now using this as ammo with her.”
“He has told her that if he wasn’t drunk than they wouldn’t have kept everyone’s attention for so long.”
The friend adds, “They both want this to be settled out of court because there is no need to go into a messy back-and-forth. They are both incredibly rich already and will continue to get rich together or alone. Scott also wants open visitation with his kids and he knows that will be based on his ability to stay sober, as the court definitely takes that into consideration.”

Keeping fit during her pregnancy, she went on a hike two days ago and posted a photo via Instagram.
