On Louis: “Well, obviously I was a bit shocked, but he’s taken super well to it…[Briana Jungwirth]‘s a lovely girl.
On how Louis feels about becoming a dad: “He’s very excited with what’s going on with him at the moment and I feel that stuff like that happens sometimes. He’s taking it very seriously.”
On Zayn: “I haven’t spoken to him recently and he’s off doing his own thing and taking his time. It is a difficult thing to leave the band, but his heart wasn’t in it. You have to go with your heart and say, ‘I can’t do this anymore’ and ‘There is something out there that I do want to do that is different,’ and that’s fine.”
“Every single day we are thankful for the platform that you incredible people gave us . What an amazing 5 years it’s been !!” Louis recently tweeted. “You have been by far the most incredible fanbase and nothing you do goes unnoticed. We are so lucky to have you guys ! Thanks so much :)”
He continued, “Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you. My attempt of expressing how thankful we are for you guys!”
“I said to him, ‘You man up,’” Simon, 55, said while speaking to The Sun.
Simon added, “‘You’re fortunate because you’re in a position to be able to look after the baby and not worry too much about that.’”
“But I also told him, ‘I’ve received bad calls in my life but this is not one of them,’” Simon continued. “This is your business but I’m here for you.’ He didn’t kill anyone. He got someone pregnant. It happens every day all over the world. Again, Louis has got great family around him and, look, it’s a plus, not a negative.”
