Louis Tomlinson of One Direction is going to be a father, People is reporting.

The mother, Briana Jungwirth, is a Los Angeles-based stylist whom Tomlinson met through mutual friends following his breakup from longtime girlfriend Eleanor Calder.

They aren’t in a romantic relationship, says People, but “their friendship is extremely strong and they are both really excited about the baby. It’s early days and Briana and the baby’s health are the most important things right now.” Tomlinson, 23, plans on being a “hands-on dad” though the news was admittedly “a suprise at first.” 

Anyway, not to be hyperbolic, but Twitter basically exploded almost immediately with Directioners not knowing how to react to the news that the world is getting an honorary addition to the band currently on the U.S. leg of their On the Road Again tour.

First, there were the denials:
