Louis Tomlinson, at the young age of 24, has already been accustomed to constantly shifting roles. From beginning his career as an extra in the ITV drama “Fat Friends” to being an X-Factor hopeful to one of the most easily recognized celebrities internationally, he is no stranger to changing hats based upon the different opportunities his career takes him. However, no singing lesson or audition could prepare Louis for the next phase of his life: fatherhood.
I'm pleased to say my baby son was born yesterday 🙂 👶 He is healthy and pretty amazing 🙂 I'm very happy!!

The One Direction star became a father on Thursday, January 21st when his girlfriend Danielle Campbell gave birth to a baby boy, whom they named Freddie Reign. As unique as the name is, the name Freddie did not come because of deeply personal reason but rather it was a name that the two liked. For “Reign”, the baby’s middle name, Mama Bear Danielle wanted to name the baby Rain as an earth-inspired tribute, but thought Rein made for better spelling. Not only is his name made for fame, but he’s already starting to emulate the good lucks of both Mum and Dad.
Although it breaks the hearts of fans to see another One Direction star off the market, things are not completely bleak. Louis constantly posts adorable selfies with his newborn baby, and fans feel at ease seeing their idol content. See the fan reactions here:
@Louis_Tomlinson is the kind of father every boy wants to look up for, every girl wants to be protected by. ⭐️

It’s been quite a journey not just for Louis Tomlinson, but for all of the members of One Direction. As the boys endure major life changes like fatherhood, romance, and the pressure of trying to stay afloat in a constantly changing industry, it is support from the fans that keep them grounded and able to do what they do. While Louis might be used to singing and dancing on stage, this time he’ll have to find out the intricacies of changing a diaper…
