Louis Tomlinson and Briana Jungwirth share first look at their baby boy Freddie

Show comments

Louis Tomlinson and Briana Jungwirth have taken to Instagram to share the first pictures of their baby boy, Freddie.

The One Direction star who is on "hiatus" from the British and Irish boyband, shared the black and white photo with his 7.8 million followers and also revealed the newborn's name.

"Meet my little lad, Freddie," he wrote, alongside a baby emoji.

Earlier in the week, it was believed that Tomlinson and Jungwirth, both 24, had chosen the name Sydney Rain. But the fashion stylist, who is not in a relationship with Tomlinson, revealed on her own Instagram account that they have named him Freddie Reign.

The snap shows the first-time father getting to grips with parenthood as he holds his six-day-old son against his bare, tattooed chest, while resting his chin on his head.


Meanwhile, Jungwirth plants a kiss on Freddie's cheek from her hospital bed, describing him in the caption as the "love of my life".

Tomlinson himself took to Twitter to confirm that he has become a dad for the first time after his former fling Jungwirth gave birth to a baby boy on Thursday, January 21, in Los Angeles.

Despite reports that he was banned from the delivery room by Jungwirth's mother, a spokesperson said he was present for the birth.

"This story is absolutely not true and Louis was by Briana's side the whole time in delivery room for the birth," the spokesperson said.

Jungwirth and Tomlinson had a brief fling in May after Tomlinson split from his girlfriend of four years, Eleanor Calder. 

He is now dating Disney star and actress Danielle Campbell.
