“[Louis has] been telling Eleanor that no one can compare to her,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Louis feels like he let Eleanor down and for that he’s really sorry. He feels bad and knows how hard it’s been on her.” To hear more about Louis Tomlinson becoming a father to be, head over to iTunes and download the latest HollywoodLife podcast for free!
Before the pregnancy became public, Louis and Eleanor’s communication had faded away after a bitter breakup back in March. Now their relationship has understandably become more tense. Knowing that her ex is expecting with someone else must surely be a difficult pill to swallow for the Brit beauty.
“Eleanor feels betrayed, she knows Louis didn’t intentionally try to hurt her, but she still feels like she got hit in the stomach with the baby news,” our insider explains. “Neither of them really ever wanted their relationship to end in the first place.”
“Louis wanted to stay with Eleanor but also wanted his freedom. I guess he wanted to have his cake and eat it too. She pretty much gave him an ultimatum and he chose his freedom,” the source adds. “They were both very much in love.”
So in love, in fact, that Eleanor literally couldn’t stomach the idea of someone else besides herself carrying Louis’ little one. After four years of a riveting romance, we can’t blame poor El for being bummed about it.
“Eleanor was shocked when she heard the news and kind of sick to her stomach,” a second source reveals to us. “It’s not like they had been broken up for long! Louis mom broke the news to her — they’re still very close. This is not the kind of news any ex-girlfriend wants to hear, especially when you dated someone for so long and then the next person who comes along ends up getting pregnant.” Maybe a few more (or perhaps, a LOT more) apologies are needed to be said on Louis’ part.
