Update (11:45 AM ET): People confirmed with a source that Tomlinson and Jungwirth welcomed a son this week in Los Angeles. Official confirmation has yet to arrive.

Original Story: Is One Direction's Louis Tomlinson now a proud papa? Rumors that Briana Jungwirth has given birth spread like wildfire on Friday morning (Jan. 22), after Tomlinson and Jungwirth confirmed that they were expecting a child together last July.

Although no official word has come yet, a popular 1D fan account sent Directioners into a frenzy by claiming that Jungwirth's grandmother confirmed that "the baby is a boy." The hashtag #WelcomeBabyTomlinson began trending worldwide soon after.

A rep for One Direction did not immediately respond to Fuse's request for comment. 

Jungwirth, a Los Angeles-based stylist, confirmed that she was carrying Tomlinson's child last summer; the 1D member called it a "very exciting time" in his life when asked about his impending fatherhood. One Direction released the album Made In The A.M. last November, and have since gone on an indefinite hiatus.
