"Well I was obviously a bit shocked," said Liam. "He's taken super well to it, he's very excited about what's going on with him at the moment. Sometimes stuff happens like that, not to make it sound like a small deal...he's taking it very seriously."

Liam also added that Briana is "a lovely girl."

Liam isn't the first person to comment on the '1D baby', everyone from Briana's ex to Simon Cowell has had their say, but coming from a bandmate makes it feel that bit more official, doesn't it?

Simon has given his own advice telling Louis to "man-up" and Briana's ex-boyfriend has chimed in saying Louis is a lucky guy.

After all this, Louis is YET TO COMMENT on the news he's to be a dad. However, he thanked fans on Twitter during 1D's fifth-year anniversary, saying: "You have been by far the most incredible fan base and nothing you do goes unnoticed. We are so lucky to have you guys! Thanks so much :)."

And it sounds like things are going well for the soon-to-be parents!

According to The Sun, Brianna and Louis have recently met up several times and may well make a go of things.

A source told the newspaper: "Louis is sacrificing all his spare time to see her... There are very real feelings there. It's not just about the baby."

Briana, 23, is thought to be about three months pregnant.
