Say hello to Louis Tomlinson‘s son!

The One Direction band member introduced fans to his 6-day-old baby boy, Freddie Reign Tomlinson, on Instagram and Twitter Wednesday.

“Meet my little lad, Freddie,” Tomlinson, 24, captioned the father-son photo. Mom Briana Jungwirth posted her own snap, captioning it, “1/21/16. Freddie Reign. Love of my life.”

In the black-and-white image, the shirtless singer cuddled his newborn against his bare chest. Tomlinson also indicated Freddie will be taking his surname by sweetly referring to him as “Freddie Tommo” in a tweet.

Tomlinson and Jungwirth welcomed their first child in Los Angeles on Jan. 21, with the new dad confirming the news on Twitter.

“I’m pleased to say my baby son was born yesterday. He is healthy and pretty amazing,” he wrote, adding, “I’m very happy!!”

In addition, a mutual friend of the pair told PEOPLE: “Louis is happy and very excited about becoming a dad and he thinks Briana will be an amazing mother. It was a surprise at first, but he and Briana are very, very close friends and this has brought them even closer.”
