We did not see this coming at all!
Chris apparently has a nine-month-old daughter with a 31-year-old model friend of his named Nia.
We'll keep you updated as more info comes to light!

Now, most of the members have been hush-hush since the split, except for Max!
"Our personal lives drove us apart — things started to happen and we were drifting….We had a very difficult conversation. Our manager Scooter Braun asked us who would want to take a step out after the tour and try to do their own thing. Me and Nathan [Sykes] both said we have our own ambitions. We were more prepared than the others because we'd looked at how things had been going with the band over the past few months. No one should be surprised.”
HOLY shizz, the gloves are off!
So while EXCLUSIVELY interviewing Siva Kaneswaran yesterday, we obvi had to ask about Max's comments!
He explained all the other guys found out about the basic bashing via social media, and were completely shocked! Trying to remain positive, he offered up a suggestion for how to remedy the situation:
Okay, so we've been Nancy Drew-ing this relationshizz pretty hard…
And we might actually have an answer about Ariana Grande and Nathan Sykes' status!
A report surfaced on January 20th that Nathan had a secret meet-up with Ari at her El Lay home - before jetting back to London!
That same day The Way singer tweeted the following piece to our love puzzle:
Well, this is enlightening!
We realize their once relatively equal rivalry with One Direction had devolved into a Harlem Globetrotters/Washington Generals-esque lopsided contest, but being second best at a thing is no reason to quit that thing, right?!
So why did they throw in the towel? Why now? Was it really to "pursue personal projects"?
Will Jay McGuiness return to school so he can study up to become a world-class archaeologist?
Is Nathan Sykes going home for good because he's tired of sleeping in hotel rooms on the road every night & eating mediocre room service?
Maybe Siva Kaneswaran decided he'd try his hand at fanfic writing and plans to start by penning a Larry Stylinson masterpiece!!
As it turns out, all of those guesses are way off! Max George revealed the real reason for The Wanted's break-up and, honestly, it surprised us!
We feel like they're breaking up with us in an "it's not you, it's us" style!
It looks like fans will have to say goodbye to Siva Kaneswaran, Max George, Nathan Sykes, Jay McGuiness, and Tom Parker as a group, for now!
The Wanted has officially announced that they'll be taking a break "for a while" to pursue personal projects after their U.S. Word of Mouth Tour wraps!
Hey, at least they didn't cancel it all together like the European leg!
The boys sugar-coated the important announcement by saying they'll be debuting their new single and music video for Glow In The Dark off of the group's latest album - but that barely cushions the blow.
In a statement on the site, a rep for the band explained:
Well, this is shocking…
Actually, Jai was never Nariana's biggest fan since she supposedly dumped him for Nathan back in September.
Jai told Us Weekly:
Oooo Max George better watch out!!
The 21-year-old model was spotted posing in several enticing bikinis in Mexico on Monday for Sauvage Swimwear, and we're not even sure if her seXXXy modeling did the brand any favors because her hot bod totally distracts from the swimwear!!
Bet Max George is wishing he was that log right about now, since that'd be a super normal thing to wish in this situation. Ha!!
Keep up the good work, lady!
