Well, little Louis Tomlinson is making us burst with pride today, as it's now official that he's a co-owner of the Doncaster Rovers football (or soccer, depending on where you live) club.

It's been rumored for some time that Louis was planning to buy the team, but the big news was confirmed today, as Louis will be a co-owner with John Ryan. Louis has really come full circle on this one and is living the dream – after all, he used to work at a refreshment stand at the games.

A statement on the Rovers' website announced the big news: "The owners of Doncaster Rovers; Terry Bramall, Dick Watson and David Blunt are pleased to announce that contracts have now been exchanged with a completion date set for the 18th July 2014 for John Ryan and Louis Tomlinson to assume ownership of Doncaster Rovers, Doncaster RLFC and the Foundation."

First up, Louis and John kicked off the Tomlinson Ryan Trust and launched a Crowdfunder campaign to raise money for the club.

Watch Louis beam in the video below – fans are so proud, but perhaps his mum is the most excited for her son's big news, as she tweeted: "Today is a proud day for me. I've believed in him since day one & having his wishes come true is just what he deserves."
