Simon Cowell Gave Louis Tomlinson Advice After Baby News: 'Man Up'

Simon Cowell is opening up about talking to Louis Tomlinson after the news broke that he would be having a child with his friend Briana Jungwirth.

“I said to him, ‘You man up,’” the 55-year-old music producer told The Sun. “‘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,’” Simon continued. “This is your business but I’m here for you.’ He 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.”

Louis and Briana‘s baby is due next year and he wants to be a “hands-on dad.”
