We have to start off with the Louis’ big baby news! On July 14, the One Direction fandom was rocked to the core after news broke that Louis was expecting his first child with Briana Jungwirth, 23. The pregnancy was a surprise to the 1D singer at first, but he is reportedly “happy and very excited” about welcoming a little one into the world.

Louis becoming a dad was definitely not what we were expecting to hear. Seriously, he’s only 23 years old! But, hey, he’s going to be the hottest daddy out there! HollywoodLife.com learned EXCLUSIVELY that his pals in the band are “thrilled” about the baby and can’t wait to be “fun uncles.” Too cute! We also found out that Louis plans to bring the baby to a few of his shows when the band goes on tour again.

Zayn Malik Leaving & More 1D OMG Moments

However, this wasn’t the first jaw-dropping in 1D history. Allegations surfaced that Zayn cheated on fiancee Perrie Edwards, 22, while One Direction was touring in Thailand. But that wouldn’t be the most shocking thing Zayn did this year. Zayn decided to leave One Direction for good in March 2015 after five years with the band. We’re still not over it. 

The boys have also had some crazy experiences on stage. Zayn saved Harry’s hair from catching completely on fire at the band’s Chicago concert in July 2013. After watching the video, it was a close one! Since we’re turning up the heat, Harry surprised fans across the world when he locked lips with Taylor Swift, 25, on New Year’s Eve in 2013. Haylor was real once, y’all.
