The story of Louis Tomlinson's life just got another chapter.

The 23-year-old One Direction singer is expecting a baby with his Los Angeles-based stylist friend Briana Jungwirth, also 23, according to Us Weekly.

The uber-famous singer and Jungwirth met through mutual friends after his breakup from longtime girlfriend Eleanor Calder, the magazine reports.

"Louis didn't expect this, but he's excited for it now," a source tells Us Weekly. "He's become very close friends with Briana this year, and now they are looking forward to becoming parents. He's definitely going to be there and be a great dad for their baby."

While the singer hasn't made a public statement about the reports, he did tweet out a kid-friendly message on Monday.

"I want to live in a world where every sick child can see a doctor," he wrote, including a YouTube link and the hashtag #action1D.

Tomlinson is no stranger to kids. One of eight children, the "Night Changes" singer also has a new set of twin siblings. His mother, Johanna, gave birth to boy-girl twins in February 2014.

"Johanna is a midwife, so she's been able to give advice and has been a great source of support for Briana," a source tells People magazine.

We're just wondering which songs will be his favorite lullabies? "What Makes You Beautiful" could be a contender.

Congrats to Louis and Briana!
