Louis Tomlinson confirmed that he’s going to be a father just before One Direction performed on ABC’s Good Morning America on Tuesday. The mother is Los Angeles-based stylist Brianna Jungwirth, whom he met at a club in Los Angeles back in May.

Co-host Michael Strahan asked Tomlinson, “Louis, from one father to another, I want to congratulate you on your upcoming fatherhood. So how are you feeling?” The singer looked surprised, but thanked Strahan. “Obviously it’s a very exciting time,” he said, adding that he’s “buzzing.”

Johannah Poulston, Tomlinson’s mother, told the press she was “excited” about the impending arrival while in New York along with the band members.

Last night, the band was in New York City, celebrating the birthday of Tomlinson’s sister, Lottie. Their new single “Drag Me Down” premiered last week. The song is from their new album, which is reportedly now complete.
