You know what would have made me think all this MIGHT be real?

Rewind back to July and not break the news.  Wait until Louis’ baby mama (because we shouldn’t really know her name by this point) is past the first trimester, and release a statement via rep saying Louis has gotten a woman, Briana, pregnant.  Maybe even go as far back to us never having seen her clubbing with Louis…

Then, when someone asks him about it at GMA have Louis not look like someone just kicked him in the balls, but look happy that he’s going to be a dad.  Because if Louis really were going to be a father he would be so happy!

Then, maybe he mentions how he’s looking forward to meeting his baby during the break whenever he is asked what his plans for the break are.  

Also, we never find out anything else about the baby mama because she really truly is a private person and wants nothing to do with the spotlight.

Then, we’ll get a rep statement announcing the birth of the baby, stating the name, weight, and how they’re happy and healthy and what not.  Then Louis can post his picture of his son on IG.  Louis’ family, friends, and band mates all congratulate him via social media.

And that’s it.  Louis is MIA because he’s spending as much time as possible with his son.  Maybe he gets seen at a grocery store, with bags under his eyes, because he’s hardly gotten any sleep due to spending all this time with the baby, who knows.  

But that’s it.  We don’t need Update Accounts or Family members confirming the birth before we hear it from the rep.  We don’t need a birth certificate.  We don’t need pap pictures every single day for a week, not to mention pap pics of Louis with the hospital wristband.

If things would have played out this way then MAYBE I would be convinced he really is a father and be happy for him.  But none of it has played out this way and I’m not a fucking idiot.
