Louis Tomlinson Reveals Son's Name & The Choice Will Surprise You

Just days after the birth of his baby boy, One Direction's Louis Tomlinson revealed the name of his son on Wednesday. And... It's Freddie!

The news comes via Twitter when the 24-year-old singer shared a touching photo of his son with the caption, "Meet my little lad, Freddie." In it, a shirtless Tomlinson holds little Freddie as he crouches his head below his father's. A later tweet of "Freddie Tommo" revealed that Freddie will share the same last name as Tomlinson.

Tomlinson and former girlfriend and L.A. stylist Briana Jungwirth welcomed Freddie to the world on Friday. While it's unclear how the pair will co-parent or what kind of child support the singer will provide, Tomlinson has stated he plans on being a hands-on father in his son's life. The 1D singer has taken up a lease on a mansion in L.A. to be closer to Freddie.

The announcement defies the swift rumors that Tomlinson's baby son would sport the name Sydney Rain. I, for one, find Freddie a much better choice. And there's a long history of famous Freddies: Freddie Mercury, Freddie Prinze Jr., Freddie Highmore. That's pretty good company to be with.
