It’s so touching that everyone involved with Louis Tomlinson‘s family is coming out in support right now.
As you know, Tomlinson’s mother Johannah Deakin passed away this week after a battle with cancer, and now, everyone in the singer’s life — including his ex — has heartfelt words of support for the family during this tough, tough time.
Briana Jungwirth, the 24-year-old who raises Louis’ son Freddie (both pictured, above) that the exes had together last year, wrote a poignant post on Instagram yesterday afternoon sharing her condolences over the sudden and tragic passing.
“My heart aches. Every time I look at Freddie, I see you in him Jay. I will always remember the times we shared and the talks we had. I looked up to you and sadly only knowing you for a short time, I aspired to be just like you in a mother to Freddie. I promise to share with him all of what I know of you including your beautiful attributes. We both loved you very much. You’ll always stay close forever in our hearts.”
So sad, but so touching.

It wasn’t just Briana sharing her memories, either.
Her stepfather, Brett Clarke, also shared an emotional message on social media about the passing of Johannah, writing:
“My heart goes out to the whole Tomlinson-Deakin family. Although I didn’t get to spend as much time with her as I wanted she always made my family and I feel special. She was warm, funny and selfless. She raised a whole group of Legends and was more than a mom to her children but also a friend. She always put her kids first and was more than a awesome mom. Her whole life was about her kids and her husband Dan. I put this here in promise to love more like you, to be more humble like you, to be more compassionate about others like you did and maybe pass on a little of your legacy to be more selfless like you were. #ripjohannah #familyovereverything #lovelikejay.”
Wow — so touching.
It says a lot about Johannah that so many people are remembering her so fondly.
