Louis Tomlinson's ex 'blindsided' by baby news
Louis Tomlinson's former lover was "blindsided" by the news he was to become a dad.
The One Direction star is said to be expecting a baby with LA-based stylist Briana Jungwirth and reportedly requested his ex-girlfriend - who he dated for over three years - to meet up with him in Los Angeles so he could tell her in person.
A source said: "Eleanor was trying to avoid Louis but when he insisted they meet she knew it was important.
"She was blindsided by the news and is still trying to get her head around how everything has changed so fast.
"But she appreciates he had the decency to tell her in person. He did the right thing."
And Briana's family - mom Tammi, stepdad Brett and stepbrother Austin - are believed to be finding the media attention surrounding their family "a bit much".
Brett told a friend: "The news wasn't supposed to break until next week. It's already a bit much. The family isn't used to this attention."
And despite Louis and Briana not being in a relationship, a friend has claimed they are "getting on very well" but have yet to decide how best to raise the baby.
They told The Sun newspaper: "They are getting on very well but nobody has discussed custody details yet."
