Briana Jungwirth has responded to reports that her baby with Louis Tomlinson is fake, branding them "cruel", "sick" and "morally wrong". The new mum spoke about how hurtful it has been to hear people believe her son Freddie doesn't exist, after a news outlet photoshopped a picture of Louis holding their baby, cropping out the child and replacing it with question marks.
"Sorry but that is just cruel," she wrote alongside the altered image. "I don't usually speak out much, but I'd like to know how would you feel as a proud new mother reading something like this?
Briana Jungwirth has hit back at claims her baby is a fake
"How dare anyone call my child fake? That's sick and morally wrong. Say all you'd like but I won't let anyone take away the happiness I have for my baby son. I know Louis won't either."
Louis, 24, has already been quizzed about the ongoing conspiracy theory, which claims that the former couple have been using a doll in their baby pictures. While he was out in LA last week pushing Freddie in a buggy, a photographer said to the star: "Hey Louis, it's good to see that your baby is real, man," in reference to the rumours.
Louis and Briana welcomed Freddie on 21 January
"Have a bit of respect for a baby, pal," a visibly-annoyed Louis replied.
Both Louis and Briana have been sharing a number of photos of little Freddie since the rumours started, and this week the proud new mum uploaded the first video of their son, which shows her playfully cuddling and kissing Freddie, while he giggles away.
The pretty stylist recently joined Twitter, and also revealed how little Freddie came to have his name. "Louis loved the name Freddie… I picked Reign and it sounded perfect together," she told a fan.
