Louis Tomlinson is "excited" about becoming a father.
The One Direction star confirmed he is expecting a baby after a brief relationship with stylist Briana Jungwirth during an appearance on 'Good Morning America'.
When asked about the news by host Michael Strahan, the 23-year-old singer said: "Obviously it's a really exciting time, so I'm buzzing, thank you."
Meanwhile, fellow 'Night Changes' hitmaker Liam Payne previously admitted he was "shocked" when he found out Louis was going to be a father.
He said: "Well obviously I was a bit shocked but he's taken super well to it. And he's very excited with what's going on with him at the moment and I feel that stuff like that happens sometimes ... He's taking it very seriously."
Of Briana, Liam added: "Yeah she's really nice, she's a lovely girl."
Meanwhile, a source previously claimed that Louis has "real feelings" for Briana.
They said: "There are very real feelings there. It's not just about the baby.
"Louis is sacrificing all his spare time to see her. They spent last Sunday together after he made a whirlwind stop in LA during what was a rare day off for the band. And they spent the entire Fourth of July weekend together meeting each other's families."
