Louis Tomlinson’s mum took to Twitter this week to set the record straight!
The new mum gave birth to her second set of twins earlier this month and we reported at the time that her famous son rushed to the hospital to meet his new brother and sister as soon as they were born. He’s remained close to home ever since.
One Direction fans are eager to see the babies for the first time and have been pleading with their idol, his sister, his mum and stepdad for a picture and for a while it looked like their wishes had been granted.
A photograph said to be of Johannah Poulston and fiancé Dan Deakin’s newborn babies was doing the rounds on Twitter, and receiving a lot of attention from Directioners around the world.
However, after one fan shared the shot with the caption ‘Ernest and Doris are just sooo cute!!!’ Johannah replied: ‘Sorry these are not my babies xx.’
Johannah is mum to One Direction singer Louis – his biological father is Troy Austin – and later gave birth to daughters Lottie, Fizzy and twins Phoebe and Daisy while married to Mark Tomlinson.
She split from Mark during 1D’s early days and is now engaged to be married to Dan.
Deakin tweeted last week saying:
‘Thank you for all the lovely messages. Doris and Ernie are just lovely; we’re so pleased and I feel very lucky to have them 🙂 x,’
Meanwhile, it’s a big night for One Direction this evening, as the bad are up for three gongs at The Brit Awards 2014.
We reckon they’ve got at least one in the bag though, as the voting for Best Video will be conducted online and who has a bigger collective online following than 1d?
Nominees for the trophy are:
Calvin Harris featuring Ellie Goulding and I Need Your Love
Ellie Goulding’s Burn
John Newman’s Love Me Again
Naughty Boy featuring Sam Smith with La La La
One Direction: Best Song Ever
Voting will open on Twitter in the category later tonight.
The main One Direction Twitter account has 17.8m followers, however the boys have between 11m and 19m on their personal accounts also, which leaves the other nominees trailing behind.
By comparison, Calvin Harris boasts a respectable 3.8m, Niall Horan’s pal Ellie Goulding has 2.5m, John Newman is followed by 109,000 fans and Naughty Boy is at the bottom of the pile with 63,000.
Voting for the award begins tonight, 8pm, during the live show and fans will be asked to use a unique hashtag for each nomination, while only one vote per Twitter account will be counted.
We think it’s fair to say that One Direction have it in the bag don’t you? Leave your comments below…
