What's a fan gotta do these days to get some confirmation that her favorite boy band member is having a baby? It’s starting to seem like she could do just about anything and still receive no answer, as One Direction member Louis Tomlinson has yet to comment on the news that he impregnated stylist Briana Jungwirth.
Directioners are going crazy begging for answers — some even resorting to tossing fake babies onto the stage at One Direction's concerts — but Louis, much to their dismay, has stayed silent. He’s taken to Twitter a few times since the “Baby Tommo” news broke a week ago to comment on recent shows and promote One Direction’s philanthropic efforts, but he’s doing a fairly impressive job dodging the question that’s on everyone’s mind.
Just today, he teased fans by tweeting five times in a row, thanking them for their unwavering support through the emotional journey that has been One Direction’s career. Though a tweet like, “You have been by far the most incredible fanbase and nothing you do goes unnoticed . We are so lucky to have you guys ! Thanks so much :)” had fans thinking Tomlinson might be ready to make a confession, it turns out he was just celebrating 1D’s fifth anniversary as a band. Sigh. BabyTommoGate lives to see another day.
We’re honestly surprised Tomlinson has waited this long to address the baby rumors, especially because One Direction’s management is known for quickly squashing any scandal that could harm the boys’ careers (Larry, anyone?) But tomorrow, the Twitter silence is going to hit a week, and we can only wonder what is taking the boys and their management so long. Regardless of whether the pregnancy turns out to be real or simple Hollywood gossip, we expect something big to come from BabyTommoGate — be it a lengthy statement or news that the boys have decided to take a break from the band. So Directioners, prepare yourselves, because the emotional journey of One Direction fanhood is not getting easier anytime soon.
