Sorry girls, the day we’ve all been dreading has come. Today is the dark day when Simon Cowell confirmed that Louis Tomlinson will become a father and, unfortunately, we are not the mother.
When rumours began circulating last week that Louis was to father a child with American stylist Briana Jungwrith, we first of all refused to believe the rumours, then we took a pregnant test, then just ignored it all until we received confirmation. And confirmation is what we have received today.
Simon revealed in an interview with The Sun on Sunday: “I said to him, ‘You man up. You’re fortunate because you’re in a position to be able to look after the baby and not worry too much about that.’”
“But I also told him, ‘I’ve received bad calls in my life but this is not one of them. This is your business but I’m here for you’.”
But does this spell the end for OT4? Fear not Directioners, Uncle Si reckons they’ll be back stronger than ever after their imminent break.
“In terms of the band, they’ve got enough hits now they can take some time off and do some other stuff they want to do. Then I hope they’ll have a little bit of time apart and want to get back together again. It’s a fun job, but it’s absolutely their decision.”
Well we’re off to Mothercare to begin our Congratulations hamper. We’re chuffed for you, Lou.
