Since the news, many fans of One Direction have been fearing what will happen now that both Louis and Zayn Malik have other things on their plates!
Well, X Factormentor Simon Cowellhas finally opened up about the future of his act, confirming the pregnancy while saying:
"I said to (Louis), 'You man up. You're fortunate because you're in a position to be able to look after the baby and not worry too much about that.' But I also told him, 'I've received bad calls in my life but this is not one of them. This is your business but I'm here for you.'
(Louis) didn't kill anyone. He got someone pregnant. It happens every day all over the world. Again, Louis has got great family around him and, look, it's a plus, not a negative.
In terms of the band, they've got enough hits now they can take some time off and do some other stuff they want to do. Then I hope they'll have a little bit of time apart and want to get back together again. It's a fun job, but it's absolutely their decision."
We're sure Louis is gonna be a great dad, but we don't want to live in a world where 1D has to go on a break!
If you're all over social media like we are, you may have seen people sharing the story about the #MissingDCgirls this week.
Several black and Latina teens are missing in the Washington, D.C. area, and it isn't even making national news.
A few celebrities have even gotten swept up in the case, which has some sharing theories about human trafficking and the media turning a blind eye. Congressional Black Caucus chairman Cedric Richmond wrote a letter to the DOJ and FBI demanding action.
