Well isn’t this adorable!
As One Direction fans continue to grapple with the news that Louis Tomlinson is expecting a baby with Briana Jungwirth, it seemed like the perfect time to dip into the pools of nostalgia and dig up some cute childhood photos of the father-to-be.
While the singer, 23, has yet to comment on the happy news, he did Tweet to fans following the band’s concert on Wednesday:
And while Tomlinson’s bandmates have yet to offer their congratulations publicly, behind the scenes Simon Cowell – who helped launch One Direction, and is working with Tomlinson on his new record label, which was launched earlier this year under Cowell’s company Syco – “is absolutely delighted for Louis,” according to a friend.
Simon has even offered to give Louis a ride on his private plane anytime he needs to fly between the U.K. and the U.S. to see their baby, the friend said.

Earlier this week, a friend told PEOPLE that Tomlinson and Jungwirth “could not be more excited” about becoming parents.
The singer, added the pal, currently “is looking forward to finding a new house and setting up a home in Los Angeles near where Briana lives.”
