While we thought an official statement would come from Louis confirming or denying the baby buzz, he took the opportunity on GMA during One Direction's appearance today to admit that yep, he's gonna be a father.
As you'd expect, there was a wide range of reactions...and emotions have been running high. Given that we all knew there's a possibility Briana Jungwirth is legit pregnant with Louis' baby, you'd think the fandom would have been better prepared when Louis uttered, "Obviously, it's a very exciting time."
Here's how some fans in the crowd at Good Morning America handled the news (and likely some of the viewing audience, TBH):
The Louis daddy denial continues:
Of course, some Larry fueled denial:

I may be a Larry shipper but I'm truly happy for Louis. He's going to a dad. That's one of the best things to ever happen on your life.— Jason M9⃣ (@LarrysILoveYous) August 4, 2015
