One Direction member and brand new father, Louis Tomlinson, has shared his first photo of him and his son with the world, and it’s the cutest damn thing you’ll see all week (okay, maybe Channing Tatum’s daughter mourning the loss of their pet goat comes in at a close second). His name is Freddie, and he’s tiny. Freddie’s arrival couldn’t come at a better time for the 24-year-old pop star, whose bandmates have decided to go on an indefinite hiatus after five years of non-stop work. Tomlinson welcomed his little bundle of joy alongside LA-based stylist Briana Jungwirth just last week and took to Instagram last night to show off the little cutie. He then moved over to Twitter to thank his fans for their support. “Thank you so much for the all nice messages :)”
The little nipper’s nickname:

Nice of the One Direction fans, for once, to not go on the attack, though we suspect there are still a fair few psychotic followers who remain in a state of shock at the news that Louis would even dream of producing a child with another human being. He’s theirs, don’t forget. Lucky for them, Louis is still very much on the market as he’s not in a relationship with Briana but has every intention of being a very ‘hands on’ father to little Freddie.
Sharing the news on Twitter when it happened, Tomlinson said:
“I’m pleased to say my baby son was born yesterday 🙂 He is healthy and pretty amazing 🙂 I’m very happy!!”
