Louis Tomlinson, one of the members of popular boy group One Direction, is set to become a father, reports said Tuesday.
The 23-year-old is expecting a child with Los Angeles stylist Briana Jungwirth.
British tabloid The Sun said Tomlinson started dating Jungwirth in May after his breakup with girlfriend of 4 years Eleanor Calder.
"They are both really happy and although they aren't in a relationship, their friendship is extremely strong and they are both really excited about the baby," an anonymous friend was quoted as saying.
A representative for the band has not commented yet about the issue.
One Direction rose to fame after joining British talent show "The X Factor" in 2010. Last March, one of its members, Zaym Malik decided to quit the group and entered a feud over social media with Tomlinson.
