We can't blame him for trying to step up!
Earlier this week it was announced that Louis Tomlinson is expecting a child with Briana Jungwirth, a Los Angeles stylist who the One Direction singer had a brief relationship with.

Well now it sounds like Tomlinson's estranged father, Troy Austin, has spoken up and wants to be a part of his grandchild-to-be's life!
Austin, who split with the 1D singer's mom when he was only five years old, has recently told a newspaper:
"I'd like to be involved in my grandchild's life. I've missed out on Louis' life and I'd like to make up for that. It's time to heal the rift."
Tomlinson's biological father is a 46-year-old hotel worker who lives on opposite sides of the UK and hasn't actually spoken to his son in three years following an angry phone call between the two.
On the other side of the baby-to-be's family, Briana's father has also said that he's looking forward to what will be his first grandchild and he'll support his daughter and the boyband singer! It's Briana's stepmother who worries that once the baby comes, it will ‘ruin' her stepdaughter's life.
We don't know about that, but we just hope these two crazy kids can work things out and do what's best for their baby!
