Though it has yet to be confirmed by the parents themselves, the Internet is buzzing with news that Louis Tomlinson has welcomed his first child, a baby boy, with close friend Briana Jungwirth. It's a truly exciting moment for One Direction fans! Tomlinson kept pretty mum during Jungwirth's pregnancy, only revealing on Good Morning America that it was "obviously a very exciting time," so I'd be shocked if we got a photo or a name of his bundle of joy anytime soon. But the great news is, there are plenty of One Direction songs that will make perfect lullabies for Tomlinson to use sing his sweet new baby to sleep.
Yep, 1D has an arsenal of hits, and I think some of them would make perfect lullabies for father-son bonding time. Sure, the 24-year-old could stick with the old classics like "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" and "Rock-A-Bye Baby," but wouldn't it be so much cooler to hear "Gotta Be You?" Surely Tomlinson's baby would much rather fall asleep with dad singing his original tunes instead of the songs every other baby gets to hear, and I've got the perfect 1D lyrics that are well-suited to a newborn's ears.
1. "Everything About You"
Lyrics: On the other side of the world, it don't matter / I'll be there in two / I'll be there in two / I'll be there in two
He would clearly travel to the other side of the world for his new love.
2. "Stole My Heart"
Lyrics: You turned around, and you stole my heart / With just one look, when I saw your face / I fell in love
This one definitely describes the moment he met his newborn child.
3. "Gotta Be You"
Lyrics: I'll be here, by your side / No more fears, no more crying / But if you walk away / I know I'll fade / 'Cause there is nobody else / It's gotta be you / Only you
4. "Back For You"
Lyrics: Baby, you don't have to worry / I'll be coming back for you
Lyrics: Let me be the one to lift your heart up and save your life / I don't think you even realize baby you'd be saving mine
6. "You & I"
Lyrics: Nothing can come between you & I / Not even the gods above / Could separate the two of us / No nothing can come between you & I
Nothing could separate daddy from son.
7. "Don't Forget Where You Belong"
Lyrics: Don't forget where you belong: home / Don't forget where you belong: home / If you ever feel alone: don't / You were never on your own / And the proof is in this song
Are you melting from the cuteness overload yet?
8. "Through The Dark"
Lyrics: I wish that I could take you to the start / I'd never let you fall and break your heart / And if you wanna cry or fall apart / I'd be there to hold ya
Ack, my heart.
9. "Ready To Run"
Lyrics: There's a future in my life I can't foresee / Unless, of course, I stay on course and keep you next to me
Lyrics: Cause nobody knows you, baby, the way I do / And nobody loves you, baby, the way I do / It's been so long, it's been so long, maybe you are fireproof / 'Cause nobody saves me, baby, the way you do
It even says "baby" multiple times!
11. "Drag Me Down"
Lyrics: If I didn't have you there would be nothing left / The shell of a man who could never be his best / If I didn't have you, I'd never see the sun / You taught me how to be someone, yeah
Obviously not about a baby originally, but it really works.
12. "What A Feeling"
Lyrics: What a feeling to be right here beside you now / Holding you in my arms / When the air ran out and we both started running wild / The sky fell down / But you got stars, they're in your eyes
13. "I Want To Write You A Song"
Lyrics: I want to build you a boat / One as strong as you are free / So any time you think that your heart is gonna sink / You know it won't / I want to build you a boat
So excited for Tomlinson and Jungwirth and their new baby boy!
