If you’ve been around today you’ll probably have already heard the heartbreaking news of Louis Tomlinson’s mum’s death.
After losing her battle with Leukaemia, Johannah Deakin sadly passed away on Wednesday.
We’re deeply saddened to hear about her passing, and our thoughts are with Louis and the rest of the Tomlinson family.
Earlier today, Louis posted this heartwarming dedication to his mum on Instagram:
Being the amazing fandom that they are, Directioners rushed to send Louis their love and best wishes:
And, in-between the Directioner messages, Liam also took time to send his condolences:
It’s such a genuine message filled with SO much love. The boys might be on hiatus, but this proves that they’re still as strong as ever when it comes to friendship.
The love was also overwhelming on Twitter, with Zayn sending his love:
How lovely is that?
As per usual, the fandom are making sure that Louis is in their prayers:
Louis has since said that he’ll be dedicating this weekend’s X Factor performance to his mum. We can’t wait to see it, and we’ll be getting fully behind him to show our support. We know you will, too.
Rest in peace, Johanna Deakin xx
