Louis' first child with American stylist, Briana Jungwirth was born on Thursday morning in Los Angeles, People magazine have now reported based on information from a source 'close' to Briana.
The 24-year-old is said to have stayed by Briana's side during the birth. Louis and Briana split earlier last year, following the announcement of the pregnancy in June.
Early Friday morning, Tomlinson’s former stepfather, Mark Tomlinson, sparked speculation that the new addition had arrived with a Tweet: “Is that the patter of tiny feet?” he wrote.
This prompted speculation from thousands of One Direction fans on social media yesterday, who were using the hashtag #WelcomeBabyTomlinson as they discussed the reported arrival of the first 1D baby.
Louis and Briana are yet to make an official announcement on the arrival of their son.
