July 21, 2015 Simon Cowell, Louis Tomlinson, One Direction

Louis Tomlinson's diving deep into daddyhood and he's turned to Simon Cowell for help. The One Direction singer, who is expecting his first child, reached out to his mentor after news broke that his friend Briana Jungwirth is pregnant with his baby.

Cowell told The Sun, "I said to him, 'You man up, youíre fortunate because you're in a position to be able to look after the baby and not worry too much about that.'"

The celebrity host also gave some sound advice to the singer to keep a cool head. "But I also told him, 'I've received bad calls in my life but this is not one of them,'" Cowell continued of his conversation with Tomlinson. "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."

Tomlinson started spending time with Jungwirth after he split with his girlfriend Eleanor Calder. They are not in a romantic relationship at this time but plans to raise the child together.

"Louis didnít expect this, but he's excited for it now," a source told Us Weekly. "He's become very close friends with Briana this year and now they are looking forward to being parents. He's definitely going to be there and be a great dad for their baby."
