Louis Tomlinson filing for joint CUSTODY of 5-month-old Freddie


Earlier this month hearts melted as Louis Tomlinson gave the world a glimpse of his life as a father by marking his first Father's Day with an adorable Instagram post.

And now it seems the young dad wants to spend even more time with 5-month-old Freddie as – according to TMZ – Louis is going to court seeking joint legal and physical custody of his son and to request that the baby spends time 50% of his time with each parent.

Sources revealed to TMZ that the One D star is unhappy with the current custody arrangement as he has only been allowed "inconsistent" access to Freddie recently.

He is reportedly paying his ex Briana Jungwirth around $15,000 a month in child support but should the pair go to court it will be up to a judge to decide whether or not that amount is appropriate

Louis is also renting a $1 million Calabasas home for baby Freddie to live in with his stylist mother.

The news comes after Louis and Briana were snapped exchanging Freddie in a hotel car park last month as rumours circulated that Briana had banned Louis from her house.

Given how cute Freddie is, we're not surprised his dad wants more time with him.
