Louis Tomlinson is one proud papa.
Earlier this week, the British One Direction singer became the first member of the pop group to become a dad when Briana Jungwirth, a Los Angeles stylist who was romantically involved with him in 2015, gave birth to their baby boy.
“I’m pleased to say my baby son was born yesterday :),” Tomlinson said on Twitter early Saturday, in what marked his first public comment about the child’s birth. “He is healthy and pretty amazing I’m very happy!!”
The child’s name was not revealed. Jungwirth has not commented.
E! News confirmed she and Tomlinson were expecting a baby in July. The singer later said on Good Morning America, “Obviously it’s a very exciting time, so I’m buzzing.”

Tomlinson’s fellow One Direction singers have not commented directly about the happy news, although Harry Styles appeared to post a celebratory tweet.
“Flowers all around,” he wrote late on Friday.
Soon after news of his and Jungwirth’s baby’s birth was confirmed on Friday, Tomlinson was spotted wearing a hospital band while shopping in Los Angeles.
Not spotted was Danielle Campbell, who has recently been linked romantically to the singer. While the two have not confirmed a relationship, Tomlinson and The Originals actress have been photographed together several times over the past few weeks, most recently in London just before New Year’s Eve.
