If you, as a parent, have ever told your kids that they’re stupid, that they’re fat, that they need to lose weight, that they look pregnant in a certain outfit, that their make up looks horrible, that their haircut is crappy, that they’re not smart enough for certain things, and you purposefully drag your children down, even if you think you’re “just joking” then you are what’s wrong with society and you are the cause of your child’s insecurities.
I most certainly do! Here is a list that took me hours to compile but it’s good to have for reference of all the mods/hacks/fixes/overrides/etc. in my game at the moment (although in my search for the links I came across even more mods I need, so this is by no means all-inclusive):
*question: Why aren’t the links so that I can just click them? answer: Tumblr was being a jerk to the OP and the links won’t show up, so just copy and paste the text to see them*
This is for the purpose of having all the links I find most useful in one place and to provide a touchstone for people new to the situation. This doesn’t contain everything, but it contains a lot of the most vital information up to this point. I tried to stick with the most verifiable evidence.
The story that Louis Tomlinson got Briana Jungwirth pregnant and had a baby with her is a lie. Most likely this is a PR stunt and Briana never had a baby at all, much less Louis’ baby. The evidence is below.

despite being spotted with at least 5 or more girls (x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x) in the preceding months, for some reason the mother is the only girl the papers identified far ahead of the pregnancy news
despite claiming the father was dating the mother for months, the father was linked to multiple “mysterious blondes” (x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x) during the months leading up to the conception
links for x’s are in the pre-planning section above
the father stated at the Brits that he missed the child after just a day apart and hadn’t left him before, just after that it was reported he was in a custody battle due to being refused the right to see the child, and yet he has traveled away from LA where the baby is many times since then, and he missed the child’s first Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s
despite the father stating he wanted children even as a teenager, there are no pictures or videos of the father smiling when talking about the baby before the birth, or smiling at the baby with anywhere near the joy that’s found on his face when he sees any other child
the father and mother both showed up in public to exchange the baby multiple times when they could have done it somewhere that’s actually private, such as a gated property, yet the father’s rep put out a statement denouncing paps for invading the child’s privacy
despite being born and raised American, the mother has used British spelling and phrasing on social media, indicating that it’s likely she has someone managing her social media at least part of the time
at the time of the previous statement the mother also supposedly stated that a condition of her agreeing to an arrangement with the father is that he not use a nanny despite the fact that she has a nanny herself
despite smoking and using straws being prohibited after oral surgery, the father was pictured doing both after supposedly having oral surgery according to his sister, the story the pictures were used for was mainly about the baby and for some reason heavily featured his bandaid
originally I had left out questions about whether the mother got plastic surgery during the pregnancy (no decent doctor would recommend elective surgery during pregnancy), but new evidence shows the mother has definitely gotten plastic surgery now and that raises the likelihood that the suspected plastic surgery during pregnancy happened
the mother was first reported as a short fling, then as a relationship that started in Jan 2015 and lasted for a few months that would have overlapped with the father’s last long term girlfriend, and it was also reported they dated for a year, then recently it was reported as a one night stand again
it was reported that the father was dating the old girlfriend at the same time as he dated the mother, yet it was also reported that the reason he didn’t ask for a paternity test was because he and the mother were dating exclusively when they were together
the media reported the baby was born on Jan 22nd, but then the birth certificate released indicated the date of birth as Jan 21st, the father also indicated the baby was born Jan 22nd, although this was posted in the early morning, making it somewhat ambiguous
the media reported that the father and mother were about to go to court over custody disagreements in Feb, it was alleged the custody argument was temporarily settled under the condition that the father’s new girlfriend not spend time with the baby, yet the father’s new girlfriend was pictured with the baby multiple times and no action to stop it was taken until months later
another round of custody battle press that happened months later was surrounded by language (“new” girlfriend, newborn child, another newborn) and references that seemed a throwback to when the baby was a newborn, suggesting the articles (and social media posts) had been written in advance about March and held onto until the 2nd custody battle news in July, other things happening around that time were similar to March too
the pictures of the mother and father used when the pregnancy story first ran were pictures from May that were taken before the pregnancy was known, run by other papers for the dating story but not used by The Sun who didn’t report on the dating story at all, and then only published by The Sun when the baby story surfaced,The Sun being the paper the pap who took the pictures indicated
despite his baby siblings being featured openly on the father and his mother’s social media, the father and his family rarely post about the baby (especially compared to the mother) and say it’s for privacy reasons
the pictures posted of the father holding the baby on his Instagram appear to be photoshop, one is definite, the other is highly suspect (wrong hair length in both cases, missing tattoo, impossible body position of the baby)
the other pictures of the father holding the baby posted by others on social media are also suspect of photoshop (humongous hands in proportion, missing tattoo, strange lighting and texture contrast between baby and father)
around three weeks before the pregnancy news broke, the father picked up a baby doll onstage, unnecessarily repeated “it is not real” multiple times and threw it off stage while wearing a shirt that said “the future is now”
the baby’s name, Freddie Reign, aligns closely with Freddie Mercury from Queen who is a well known gay icon, and who the father would have been aware of given the connection to the stuffed bear called Teddy Mercury that educated the fandom on much LGBT+ history and shared the stage with him for the entire last tour
the father never used to post solo selfies and then suddenly started posting unfailingly morose selfies right around when the baby was born and around events showing the father’s involvement with the baby
almost the only pictures on the father’s Instagram that are in black and white since the pregnancy news are those of him in a picture with the baby or him with his girlfriend who is suspected to be a beard
*update: there are now a few more black and white pics but they’re either warning selfies, promo pics, or a pic that may have been taken by the father’s suspected boyfriend
all of the pictures on the fathers’ Instagram that show him with the baby are in black and white (*updated- except for 2 which don’t show his face), all the pictures of the father with the baby posted by his mother are also in black and white
the father’s suspected boyfriend also hinted the day the baby’s birth certificate became public, and made a post that could refer to the father and the mother’s family, and possibly sent another hint onstage, and also posted a lyric to a song with an interesting title right after the baby’s birth (tweeting lyrics as hints being something the father’s suspected boyfriend is well known for), and followed someone with interesting initials right after the mother was doing diet tea promo
the father’s selfie warnings and black and white pattern were identified and co-opted by the stunt team, by breaking the patterns they tried to diffuse the significance of them
the father talked about the baby at the Brits, but this was after having barely talked about it before birth, having acted upset whenever it was brought up before birth, and having repeatedly said he would have no particular responsibilities during the band’s hiatus
the father’s bandmate mentioned wanting to see the baby, but this was months and months after it was born, none of the bandmates ever said congratulations on social media, and the excuse for not having seen the child was flimsy at best
as may have become clear above, it’s heavily suspected that the father is actually in an unwillingly closeted relationship with his bandmate
the baby situation is one way of closeting them
the band as a whole is also nearing a transition away from their old, abusive and incompetent team, to a new team
their old team has been trying to underhandedly destroy the reputation of the band as much as possible in order to transfer fans over to their other artists instead, save face in the industry and with the public, lower the value of the band for their future team(s) since they’ll now be competing against their old team’s artists, and possibly out of a twisted personal vendetta against the band
using the baby situation to closet the father and his bandmate forces them to push back any plans they might have had to come out which distances the father’s old team from accusations of forced closeting
smearing the individuals in the band is part of this campaign
because the father getting the mother pregnant looks irresponsible, the father’s lack of interest in the mother makes him look cold, the father’s refusal to get a paternity test and formally establish custody looks naive and stupid, and it could look like the father is willingly participating in a terribly executed, over the top closeting stunt to people who see it’s a stunt and don’t know much about the band otherwise, this stunt functions as a smear campaign against him
Knowing It’s a Stunt, Was There Ever a Baby?
no, starting from the assumption that it’s a stunt, it’s extremely unlikely the mother had a baby
it’s unclear if a real baby was used for the stunt for the first month or two after birth, it may have been a combination of dolls and photoshop at first
after a certain point it became clear there was a real baby being used, although it’s unclear if there’s been more than one baby playing the role or who exactly the baby or babies belong to, although there are various theories
The reason I made my own post was to keep things easily accessible, but it was also in order to add proof I think is objectively compelling, especially without too much context being required. The posts below don’t necessarily fulfill that goal, but it’s always nice to have extra resources.
my babygate tag and the chronological version of the tag
I’m so tired of NOT doing things being some kind of statement. And of feeling like I have to explain everything I want to NOT do the thing. Like wearing make-up, or shaving my legs. But also things that aren’t even close to happening/might not even happen, like taking my husband’s last name, or announcing the “gender” of our baby to everybody, or even finding out before the birth.
Like, sometimes I think, “I just don’t really want to do that, it doesn’t sound like my thing,” but then I think about how my parents would react, my grandparents, everyone would freak out and ask a million questions and label me as some far-left activist (and they wouldn’t be wrong but still)
I’m just so tired. Like, just let people not do things without having to explain their every step to you. Maybe they’re doing it to protest stuff, but maybe they just don’t feel like it. Leave people alone.
