“Louis is happy and very excited about becoming a dad and he thinks Briana will be an amazing mother. It was a surprise at first, but he and Briana are very, very close friends and this has brought them even closer,” the friend said.
Louis and Briana met earlier this year after he split from longtime girlfriend Eleanor Calder. The baby is due next year and Louis wants to be a “hands-on dad.”
“Louis and Briana care about each other very much and have spent a lot of time together privately over the last few months,” the source added. “They are both really happy and although they aren’t in a relationship, their friendship is extremely strong and they are both really excited about the baby. It’s early days and Briana and the baby’s health are the most important things right now.”
