A member of 1D is now a one-time dad.
As previously reported, Louis Tomlinson welcomed a son into the world on last week after former lover Briana Jungwirth gave birth to a boy.
But while multiple outlets reported this news on Friday, it wasn’t until the following day when the artist himself confirmed the blessing via social media.
“I’m pleased to say my baby son was born yesterday :),” Tomlinson wrote on Twitter early Saturday, in what marked his first public comment about the child’s birth.
The handsome singer added:
“He is healthy and pretty amazing 🙂 I’m very happy!!”
Jungwirth is yet to say anything about the birth, while no details are known regarding the child’s name or measurements.
News of Tomlinson and Jungwirth expecting a child together stunned the One Direction universe back in July.
The singer had very little to say about a baby that was almost definitely not planned (he and Jungwirth were not dating at the time this news broke), but did later tell Good Morning America over the summer:
“Obviously it’s a very exciting time, so I’m buzzing.”
Tomlinson’s fellow One Direction band mates, meanwhile, have also remained mum about the tiny human being… although Harry Styles appeared to post a celebratory tweet over the weekend.
“Flowers all around,” he wrote late on Friday.
