One Direction fans have gone wild on Twitter, speculating that Doncaster singer Louis Tomlinson has become a father.
The group's devotees have taken to the social networking site in their droves amid reports the 24-year-old's former flame Briana Jungwirth has given birth to a baby boy.
Amid the hundreds of posts from excitable tweeters, a One Direction fan Twitter account, @1DExclusiveInfo, claims that Briana’s own grandmother has confirmed the news.
The post from Marianna Case, who claims to be Briana's grandmother, reads: Louis just let Ur heart dance. U now have another you. A gift that will want to be just like YOU.
'Love him & my young grandchild that gave him to you. LET her know she's special. She just wanted to love U not even knowing who U were or your profile Ur & reputation. Be free & just LIVE. It's simple. Not complex (sic).'
The news that he was expecting his first child sent shockwaves through his young fanbase when the news was revealed back in August.
At the time, the pair had been spotted on a series of nightclub dates in Los Angeles.
Things have changed since the star discovered he was to become a father as he has reportedly struck up a romance with Danielle Campbell.
