Briana Jungwirth is showing a whole lot of love for her newborn son Freddie, who she welcomed with former flame Louis Tomlinson three weeks ago. To mark one of the most love-filled days of the year, Briana shared a sweet Instagram snap of her baby boy.

The little darling was pictured clutching his mother's hand, wrapping his tiny fingers around Briana's thumb. "Couldn't have asked for a better valentine," the single mum wrote, doting on her new arrival.

One Direction fans were no doubt thrilled to see a new photo of Freddie; it is the second picture that Briana has shared on social media.

Briana Jungwirth welcomed her baby boy Freddie Reign in January

The stylist and Louis, both 24, became first-time parents on 21 January. Briana announced the happy news with a photo from her hospital bed, which she captioned: "1/21/16. Freddie Reign. Love of my life."

Fans had already suspected that Briana had given birth, leaving Louis to confirm the news on Twitter. "I'm pleased to say my baby son was born yesterday. He is healthy and pretty amazing. I'm very happy," he wrote.

Louis Tomlinson has said that his son is "pretty amazing"

The new father followed it up with a photo on Instagram, showing a shirtless Louis cradling his tiny son to his chest. "Meet my little lad Freddie," he captioned it.

Louis, who remains a close friend of Briana, is determined to be as involved as much as possible in his son's life, and it has been claimed he is paying £10,000 a month in child support – amounting to £2million over his lifetime.

1/21/16. Freddie Reign. Love of my life💙

Briana and Louis briefly dated in spring 2015 and remain good friends

"Louis is doing everything he can to provide for mother and baby," a source told The Sun. "He's very wealthy but is still being hugely generous in the amount he is giving… He's taking being a dad very seriously."

Over half of the money will reportedly go on a £4,200 a month rent for a four-bedroom house in Calabasas, Los Angeles where Briana can live with Freddie. Louis, who briefly dated the pretty blonde in spring last year, is renting his own home nearby so that he can be close to his son.
