One Direction Fans Seem To Think That Baby Tomlinson Is Here

#WelcomeBabyTomlinson is driving everyone wild.

UPDATE (1/22/16, 1:12 p.m. ET): People is reporting that Briana Jungwirth gave birth to a son on Thursday (Jan. 21) in Los Angeles. Still no official statement from Louis Tomlinson or the One Direction camp.

Has Baby Tomlinson arrived? One Direction fans seem to think so.

Twitter is abuzz with a cornucopia of confused memes after a rumor claimed that Louis Tomlinson’s friend Briana Jungwirth gave birth to a boy named Jacob on Friday (Jan. 22). News that the two were expecting broke in July. MTV News has reached out to Tomlinson’s reps, but haven’t heard anything back by press time.

Many fans are citing this cryptic Instagram said to be written by Jungwirth’s grandmother as one of the sources of the news.

Tomlinson has reportedly moved to Los Angeles to help with the baby, though he and Jungwirth are not romantically involved.

Directioners crafted the hashtag #WelcomeBabyTomlinson amid all the speculation, which, admittedly, got my heart racing this morning. But fans don’t know what to think either, and the baffling trending topic has given birth (intended) to a slew of laughable jokes:

  1. While some people are in denial…

  2. Others are just shutting out the noise.

  3. It’s definitely not what they expected first thing in the morning.

  4. Of course, Directioners are busting out Photoshop.

  5. The Photoshop is REAL.

  6. But mostly everyone is confused.

  7. Everyone is anxiously awaiting a statement of some kind.

  8. Nothing like a good inside joke to dispel a rumor.

  9. Surprise! The baby is actually Niall.

  10. Welp, I guess we’re done here.

  11. I’d rather eat pizza instead.
