Having made no comment about the recent rumours that he is expecting a baby with LA-based stylist Briana Jungwirth, Louis' latest post caused some agitation among his fans.
"R U GOING TO BE A DAD?" asked one straight-talking follower, while another questioned, "Support for what? For the baby or for the show?"

A source said: "Louis is happy and very excited about becoming a dad and he thinks Briana will be an amazing mother. It was a surprise at first, but he and Briana are very, very close friends and this has brought them even closer."
They added: "Louis and Briana care about each other very much and have spent a lot of time together privately over the last few months. They are both really happy and although they aren't in a relationship, their friendship is extremely strong and they are both really excited about the baby. It's early days and Briana and the baby's health are the most important things right now."
"Briana is a really lovely girl; she's absolutely not interested in Louis' fame," the source continued. "She's very private and most of the time they spend together is out of the public eye, just hanging with their friends."
Louis and his ex-girlfriend Eleanor Calder were together for four years but split in March
Louis and Briana are believed to have met through mutual pals following his split from long-time partner Eleanor Calder in March. Louis and Eleanor, who celebrated her 23rd birthday just a couple of days after the announcement was made public, were together for nearly four years.
The brunette beauty had the support of her closest friends when the news broke, as she was on a girly holiday in Los Angeles and Las Vegas and shared snaps on Instagram of their trip.
