A source confirmed to People magazine that he and LA-based stylist Briana Jungwirth welcomed a baby boy this week. The new parents have yet to confirm the good news, but The Huffington Post has reached out to Tomlinson's rep for comment. 

When news that the pair, who are no longer dating, were expecting a baby broke in July, a mutual friend of the two told People that while the baby was a "surprise," Tomlinson is "happy and very excited" about fatherhood. 

The 24-year-old first confirmed he was going to be a father during an interview with "Good Morning America" in August. 

When he was congratulated and asked how he was feeling by host Michael Strahan, the boy band member awkwardly replied, "Thank you. Obviously, it’s a very exciting time, so I’m buzzing, thank you."
