The 23-year-old singer and Los Angeles based stylist, Briana Jungwirth are expecting a child together, reports People who first broke the news.
Louis started dating Briana after his split from longtime girlfriend Eleanor Calder. They met through mutual friends earlier this year and the 1D member is very excited about becoming a dad. However, the couple split after a short fling and are good friends now.
"They are both really happy and although they aren't in a relationship, their friendship is extremely strong and they are both really excited about the baby. It's early days and Briana and the baby's health are the most important things right now," a source told People.
"Louis is happy and very excited about becoming a dad and he thinks Briana will be an amazing mother. It was a surprise at first, but he and Briana are very, very close friends and this has brought them even closer," a mutual friend of the couple told the mag.
