Louis Tomlinson can apparently see the future! The One Direction singer and soon-to-be dad tweeted in April 2012 that he had a baby on the way. Three years later, don’t you think you’re taking April Fools a little too far, Louis?
Louis Tomlinson, 23, broke hearts and stunned Directioners when it was revealed on July 14 that he’s going to be a dad! The One Direction heartthrob is having a baby with “close friend” Briana Jungwirth, 23, who is due in early 2016. Crazier than that news? Louis predicted his impending fatherhood in 2012! The singer tweeted an April Fools joke that he was expecting a kid — and in 2015, it looks like the little joke turned out to be reality!
Way to commit to your April Fools prank, Louis! The One Direction singer tweeted on April 1, 2012 that he had some good news to share, and the reaction was insane! Now that Louis is actually going to be a father, expecting a child with stylist Briana, the tweet has resurfaced, with fans hoping that Louis is still pulling a prank.
Can’t believe I’m going to be a Dad! Wow!!

It really doesn’t look like it, kids. This is definitely not a drill! Louis and Briana, whom he has reportedly been involved with since May 2015 after splitting with longtime girlfriend Eleanor Calder in March 2015, are about to welcome a new bundle of joy into the world! But seriously, does Louis have the ability to predict the future? Who knew that just a short time after composing that tweet, his words would come true!
But it’s all good news at the Tomlinson household — Louis is reportedly thrilled about becoming a first time dad with Briana. Though they’re not in a relationship, the two are going to be “hands on” parents together. How wonderful!
“Louis is happy and very excited about becoming a dad and he thinks Briana will be an amazing mother,” a source close to the singer told PEOPLE. “It was a surprise at first, but he and Briana are very, very close friends and this has brought them even closer.”
