Tomlinson and mom-to-be Jungwirth may no longer be dating, but are looking forward to being devoted parents together.

Louis and Briana care about each other very much and have spent a lot of time together privately over the last few months,” a mutual friend of the two told PEOPLE. “They are both really happy, and although they aren’t in a relationship, their friendship is extremely strong and they are both really excited about the baby.”
