Boy-bander and first-time dad Louis Tomlinson has just sent Twitter into meltdown by sharing the first photo of his infant son.
And, contrary to initial reports, the little one isn’t named Sydney Rain.
“Meet my little lad, Freddie,” Louis captioned the picture, which he shared on Instragram.
In the black and white photo, Louis is shirtless and cuddling his son.
The baby’s mum Briana Jungwirth, with whom Louis shared a short-lived fling last year, also shared the touching snap on Twitter.
She also posted a gorgeous first photo of her son on her Instagram account, which revealed his adorable middle name. "1/21/16. Freddie Reign. Love of my life," the new mum wrote.
It’s believed he is renting a four-bedroom house in Los Angeles for the mother of his child, who is an American stylist.
The pair were introduced by friends at Hollywood nightclub Bootsy Bellows, and remain friends. Louis is now believed to be dating actress Danielle Campbell.
Louis, 24, is the first member of One Direction to become a father.
The band is currently on hiatus, with widespread reports they could be over for good.
