Expectant father Louis Tomlinson has a special (and very cute) reason for wanting a baby boy, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned. He hopes that he can pass on some of his soccer skills so the little one can eventually play for his favorite team!
He’ll be a soccer dad! Father-to-be Louis Tomlinson, 23, is hoping his Briana Jungwirth, 23, gives birth to a boy — just so he can teach him how to play soccer just like him, HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY reveal. Aw!
“Louis wants to have a boy so he can pass on his soccer skills,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “It’s no secret that Louis is a huge soccer fan, having played in various charity soccer games, and appearing for his boyhood team Doncaster Rovers. With that in mind, if he does have a boy, he will want to get his son a ball to play around with early to get him up to scratch.”
This past week, we learned that the One Direction singer was expecting his first child Briana. The source also says that Louis would be ecstatic if he had a son that ended up representing his favorite team: “He’d love it if his son grew up to be a professional one day and played for Doncaster Rovers, although he would hope he’d play for a bigger team.”
Louis also has a back-up plan if he welcomes a daughter. “Louis has even joked with pals that if it’s a girl he won’t be deterred,” the source added. “She could always represent the women’s U.S. soccer team because they’re the world champions!”
