Tomlinson’s sister Felicite died of an accidental overdose three years after her mother Johannah died of leukaemia in 2016.

Tomlinson and Burton reportedly got to know each other at a party in May 2020, hosted by Flack’s close friend Lou Teasdale.

The party was organised to mark three months since the death of Flack.

Tomlinson and Burton have not revealed the due date of their child.
