One Direction Fans Melt Down Over Louis Tomlinson Baby News

Louis Tomlinson has responded -- well sort of.

News broke on Tuesday that the 23-year-old member of One Direction was going to be a dad, and he had remained silent ... until today.

As active as Tomlinson is on Twitter, it's surprising it took this long for him to make any sort of public statement regarding his girlfriend's pregnancy announcement. However, early Thursday morning, he responded. Except it wasn't at all a response Directioners were anticipating.

Instead of acknowledging the baby news, he decided to respond to that night's On The Road Again Tour stop in Seattle.

Congrats on the show but come on -- we need more, Louis!

Tomlinson is expecting a baby with LA stylist Briana Jungwirth.
