While we're waiting, we've heard confirmation from Briana Jungwirth's former stepdad and her father, who both say she's pregnant with Louis' baby. One Direction's opening act, Icona Pop, have offered to babysit, too.
Now 1D pal Ashton Irwin of 5 Seconds Of Summer is weighing in on the whole matter, telling The Sun (via Press Party) this week that, if it's all true, he thinks "Louis will step up to the challenge."
He told The Sun, "It's a beautiful thing. Childbirth is awesome. If it came from a one night thing, who cares? The way it's being dealt with is cool. The kid's being brought into a great position. He's never going to be hard up. He's going to brought up in a loving situation. Louis will step up to the challenge."
Okay, we already know that Ashton is sweet AF, but c'mon, how supportive and awesome is his comment about Louis' baby news?
