ONE DIRECTION BABY JOY! Harry Styles pregnant - and Louis Tomlinson is the dad...
Many presumed the One Direction star and model girlfriend Eleanor Calder were to be parents - but then The X Factor followed Louis's Tweet with shock news that band mate Harry Styles, 18, was the one expecting his child.
'We can confirm that @Harry_Styles IS pregnant. If it's a girl he's calling it Anne. If it's a boy, Juan Direction Styles. #HarrysPregnant,' Tweeted The X Factor.
'#CongratsLarryForTheBaby a welcome addition to the #XFactor family. ;-).'
Harry and Louis, whose bromance has earned them the nickname Larry Stylinson, last week laughed off rumours they were in a relationship.
But the baby hype soon calmed down when joker Louis came clean.
'April fool :),' Tweeted Louis, 20.
