One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson finally broke his silence about his imminent fatherhood on “Good Morning America” on Tuesday.
Reports came out two weeks ago that the 23-year-old singer is expecting his first child with Los Angeles-based stylist Briana Jungwirth, but he’s stayed quiet about the topic on social media. Some fans doubted the news since Tomlinson wouldn’t publicly acknowledge he would be a dad.
On Tuesday morning, after the band performed its new single “Drag Me Down,” “GMA” host Michael Strahan was able to get Tomlinson to confirm the news.
“Louis, from one father to another I want to congratulate you on your upcoming fatherhood. So how are you feeling?” Strahan asked.
“Thank you. Obviously it’s a very exciting time, so thank you,” Tomlinson said.
The band also discussed becoming a four-man group following the departure of former member Zayn Malik.
“Obviously it’s different, but, you know, when you lose a member of your team obviously everyone gets a little bit close together,” Liam Payne said. “It’s still going great and that’s what this album is about,” he said. “We’re still going strong and we’re all still here.”
