Louis Tomlinson has stayed quiet since PEOPLE reported that he would soon be a father, but early on Thursday morning he tweeted a message to fans.

And that’s it: Tomlinson thanked fans for backing One Direction during the group’s July 15 stop of the On The Road Again tour. According to fans, the Seattle show was a bit … awkward.

The tour picks up again on Friday night in Vancouver.
