If Louis Tomlinson becoming a dad wasn't enough to make your heart totally melt, the One Direction band member just accomplished it with a photo of his newborn son that is just too cute to describe. No, seriously, it's one of the most precious new dad Instagram moments to date. (Watch out, Ryan Reynolds and Justin Timberlake!)
Tomlinson took to Instagram and Twitter Wednesday to introduce his 7-day-old baby boy to the world. "Meet my little lad, Freddie," Tomlinson, 24, captioned the sweet black-and-white snap, which shows a shirtless singer (we told you it was an amazing photo) cuddling his little bundle of joy against his bare, tattooed chest.

Little Freddie's mom, Briana Jungwirth posted her own pic (below), which shows her cuddling her new swaddled baby boy in a hospital bed, captioning it, "1/21/16. Freddie Reign. Love of my life."
Tomlinson also indicated that the little guy would be taking his last name, by sweetly referring to him as "Freddie Tommo" in a tweet, People reports.
Tomlinson and Jungwirth welcomed their first child in Los Angeles on Jan. 21 — and taking over the celebrity news cycle in the process — with the new dad confirming the news to his fans and followers via Twitter. "I'm pleased to say my baby son was born yesterday. He is healthy and pretty amazing," Tomlinson, 24, wrote. "I'm very happy!!"
