Louis Tomlinson held crisis talks
Louis Tomlinson called a "crisis meeting" with One Direction after learning he was to be a father.
The 23-year-old singer is expecting a baby with friend Briana Jungwirth and, after learning his ex-lover was pregnant, he was quick to reassure bandmates Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Niall Horan that he is still committed to the group.
An unnamed family member of one of the band said: "He assured them he wasn't going anywhere and he's totally committed to 1D."
While Louis and Briana are not in a relationship, friends of the 23-year-old stylist believe they could settle down and be a family.
A friend of Briana, named as Jack by heat magazine, told the publication: "I think they could end up together - the only thing that would stop it would be him not wanting to.
"That's the type of girl Briana is - she is a homebody. She will want Louis with her baby."
Meanwhile, Briana's stepfather Brett - who is married to her mother Tammi Clark - is delighted by the news, especially as he has met Louis' family and they got on well.
He said: "It's happy news. His family are remarkable people. Life is precious."
