Louis Tomlinson (born Louis Troy Austin, 24.12.1991) Louis Tomlinson is an English singer and a member of the pop boy band One Direction.
Childhood: Louis Tomlinson was born in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, England. His parents are Johannah Poulston and Troy Austin but they split when he was young and he took on his stepfather Mark Tomlinson's surname. He was an extra on 'Fat Friends' after two of his sisters had infant roles on the show. He attended a drama school in Barnsley and subsequently had small roles in ITV movie 'If I Had You' and BBC school drama series 'Waterloo Road'. He also attended Hayfield School before going on to Hall Cross School after failing his A levels. Before One Direction, he had jobs at a cinema and as a waiter at Doncaster Rovers football stadium. Louis was in several school productions including landing the main part in 'Grease'.
Musical career: Louis Tomlinson auditioned as a solo artist on 'The X Factor' in 2010 but failed to reach judges houses. He was placed in a group with four other failed candidates; Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Harry Styles; and eventually went on to judges houses in the groups category. They all agreed on the band name One Direction after it was put forward by Styles. They came third place in the whole competition but nonetheless landed a recording contract with Syco Records after being mentored by Simon Cowell. One Direction have received numerous awards including two BRITs, three Teen Choice and an NME award, as well as having three UK number singles and a worldwide number one album.
Personal life: Louis Tomlinson had been dating his high school sweetheart Hannah Walker throughout his time on 'X Factor', but the broke up in 2011 due to his career commitments. He then began dating Eleanor Calder, after being introduced by Styles, who he has been in a relationship with for over a year. He has admitted to admiring artists such as Robbie Williams and Ed Sheeran.
The 21 year old singer apparently wants to distance himself from One Direction ahead of his solo career.
According to a report in The Sun, the singer has ditched Modest Management, who made him and 1D famous, and is being represented for the purposes of his upcoming solo material by his close friend, L.A. agent Jeffrey Azoff. Furthermore, Syco and Simon Cowell are also rumoured to be next in line for the chop.

Little Freddie Tommo (don't worry, Tommo isn't his name, it's just short for Tomlinson) has made his social media debut in a gorgeous picture uploaded by the boyband singer, soon followed by one from the baby's mother stylist Briana Jungwirth. Born on January 22nd 2016, he's revealed to be in perfect health and, while Louis and Briana aren't a couple so to speak, Louis has been pretty hands on, even renting out a property for his ex in Calabasas and another close by for himself so that he can be there for Freddie.
The 1D star has also rented a massive property for himself for the next six months, as he adjusts to fatherhood.
Louis Tomlinson has spared no expense in his preparations for first-time fatherhood, apparently shelling out on two spacious properties in Los Angeles for him, his ex-girlfriend and his newborn son to live in.
According to a report by the Mirror, the Doncaster-born star has rented two enormous properties in L.A. in order to be close to Briana Jungwirth and their baby. Earlier this month, Tomlinson put down money for a five-bedroom house for six months for himself, and another four-bedroom property for his 23 year old ex and their son, Sydney Rain, who was born on January 22nd.

1D fans took to Twitter and other platforms in their droves on Friday (January 22nd), after an unofficial One Direction fan account suggested that someone calling herself 'Marianna Case' and claiming to be Briana Jungwirth’s grandmother broke the news that the singer’s former flame had given birth to a baby boy.

A source claimed that 1D had not renewed their recording contract, but a spokesperson for the group has denied the rumour.
The long-term future of One Direction may be bleaker than first imagined, with a new report suggesting that the British boy band might not return at all after their year-long hiatus they announced back in August last year.
Having wrapped up their On The Road Again tour in October 2015 and released their fifth album, Made in the A.M., weeks later, an unnamed source close to the group has told Us Weekly that the group has decided “not to renew their recording contract”, meaning that they intend to go in separate directions.
“The 1D thing just ran its course. They’ll remain friends, but they are exhausted and want solo careers.” Another insider added that the foursome might not pursue solo careers in front of a microphone.
As Briana prepares to have their baby later this month, Louis is moving across the Atlantic and is ready to be a 'hands-on' dad.
The 24 year old 1D star is moving to California as he prepares for first-time fatherhood, and is making 23 year old Briana and their child his priority and getting ready to help in any way he can, according to a source close to Louis who spoke to MailOnline this week.
