Louis Tomlinson's ex 'disgusted' by fake baby rumours
The mother of Louis Tomlinson's child says she is "beyond disgusted" by speculation that their baby isn't even real.
Los Angeles stylist Briana Jungwrith gave birth to Freddie in January.
There has been constant online chatter that the boy isn't real and that social media photos had been doctored.
Speaking on her first Mother's Day as a mum, Jungwrith wrote on Instagram that she has been taken aback by the online abuse she has suffered.
She wrote: "This past year has been the best and worst of my life. I was blessed with the most amazing gift - A beautiful baby boy that I grew inside of me for 9 months.
"On the other hand, I was scrutinised and harassed by thousands- which even included major media outlets whom all seemed to believe he wasn't real. I am beyond disgusted by it all. Being a new mom, I wanted to feel the joy and excitement and be able to share such a beautiful time of my life.
"For all of you who think doing this to myself and my innocent child is okay, you're highly mistaken. I also know that if it was said about you, you may not had the will power to hold back as much as I have.
"I will be strong enough to continue to embrace this journey, love my son endlessly and be kind to those who do not deserve it even if it's the last thing I'd like to do. Happy Mother's Day to myself. I'm proud to be Freddie's mommy."
Jungwrith accompanied the text with a video of herself talking to Freddie.
The pair have not stayed together since the child was conceived, but Tomlinson is supporting his son and regularly visits him.
