Louis Tomlinson broke his Twitter silence this morning to thank fans for their support.
The 23-year-old- who is set to become a dad – had remained silent on social media after the news broke on Tuesday evening.
But following his show in Seattle last night, he tweeted: “Amazing show ! Thank you for the support !!”
During the One Direction show the singer was met was met with reminders of his impending fatherhood – including someone throwing a baby doll on stage.
Other fans created rather great signs to celebrate the news. One read: “Louis is the baby a TomlinSON or a tomlinDAUGHTER. Very clever.
And outside the venue one thoughtful fan started a collection of toys for the tot-to-be, perhaps forgetting he is one the richest twenty somethings in the world.
After the show Louis broke his Twitter silence and wrote: “Amazing show ! Thank you for the support !!”
Earlier in the day the singer had been spotted boarding a private jet in order to get to Seattle for the show – as he continues the On The Road Again tour after a few days off.
Louis said to be “very happy and excited” about fatherhood and believes Briana will be “an amazing mother”, according to PEOPLE.com
A source told the website: “It was a surprise at first, but he and Briana are very, very close friends and this has brought them even closer.”
It is thought Louis met Briana shortly after his split from long-term love Eleanor Calder.
He did however not make any direct reference to Briana Jungwirth – the woman who is carrying his baby.
