‘I’m buzzing’: Louis finally confirms his baby news to the world

There have been weeks of radio silence, but we've finally had not one but two confirmations of Louis Tomlinson's baby news… from the One Direction lads themselves. 

After Liam Payne addressed the rumours during a radio interview yesterday, Louis himself spoke out today about his upcoming arrival with stylist Briana Jungwirth.

The 1D lads appeared on Good Morning America just hours ago to promote their new single Drag Me Down, and the first order of business during their post-show interview was a discussion about the expectant pop star's big news.

 "Louis, from one father to another I want to congratulate you on your upcoming fatherhood. So how are you feeling?" GMA host Michael Strahan asked the 23-year-old singer. Not seeming too fazed by the question, Louis responded with a genuine "Thank you," adding, "Obviously it's a very exciting time. So, eh, I'm buzzing."

Speaking on Magic Radio yesterday, Louis' bandmate Liam said he had initially been "shocked" by the news, but that Louis was taking it all in his stride. "Well, obviously I was a bit shocked but he's taken super well to it," Liam revealed.

"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," Liam continued. Although they are no longer in a relationship, Louis and Los Angeles-based stylist, Briana Jungwirth, 23, are on good terms ahead of their baby's arrival early next year. 

The duo began dating briefly in May, just weeks after Louis broke up with his girlfriend of four years, Eleanor Calder.

First Louis… will Briana (or Eleanor) be the next to speak out?
