One Direction singer Louis Tomlinson posted a new picture with his 4-week-old son, Freddie Reign on Instagram and fans around the world are losing their minds!
The shirtless singer captioned the sweet photo “Lad and Dad.” Louis Tomlinson and his former girlfriend Briana Jungwirth welcomed Freddie to the world on Jan. 21.
“Louis is happy and very excited about becoming a dad and he thinks Briana will be an amazing mother,” a mutual friend of the pair told People Magazine of the baby’s birth.
“It was a surprise at first, but he and Briana are very, very close friends and this has brought them even closer,” said the source.
Upon Freddie’s birth, Tomlinson shared a photo of himself and his son on Instagram. The singer, shirtless for his first photo with his son as well, captioned the pic, “Meet my little lad, Freddie.”

According to E! News, Tomlinson’s former bandmate Zayn Malik has also sent his ex-pal good wishes in his own unique way.
Malik is reportedly not on speaking terms with Tomlinson. The “Pillow Talk” tunesmith remarked on the London radio show Capital Breakfast that he first learned of Tomlinson’s baby’s birth on social media, the same as us.
Malik then stated on the radio show, “Obviously I wish [Tomlinson] the best of luck,” Malik said. “His kid is cute as f–k so obviously I favorited it.”
The singer and boyfriend of model Gigi Hadid then continued, “We’re not talking on friend terms obviously, so that’s as far as I can go, by favoriting his picture.”
Fatherhood hasn’t stopped Tomlinson’s love affair with new girlfriend, actress Danielle Campbell.
The two were stopped by a reporter from Billboard Magazine and Tomlinson was asked how he felt about fatherhood,
He replied that Freddie “was great” and that “caring for a newborn is a lot of work.”
