Such a cutie! One Direction hunk Louis Tomlinson shared the first photograph of his newborn son late on Wednesday, January 27, and announced the little tot's name!

"Meet my little lad, Freddie," the "Drag Me Down" hitmaker captioned the snap on Instagram, which showed his days-old son nuzzling into his dad's bare chest.

Meet my little lad, Freddie ?

"Freddie Tommo," he reiterated via Twitter a few moments later, before thanking his followers for the onslaught of congratulatory responses. "Thank you so much for the all nice messages :)" he wrote.

Little Freddie came into the world on Thursday, January 21, and his excited dad announced the happy news on social media the day afterwards.

"I'm pleased to say my baby son was born yesterday 🙂 He is healthy and pretty amazing 🙂 I'm very happy!!," he tweeted.

Freddie's mom is Los Angelesbased stylist Briana Jungwirth, who Tomlinson dated briefly last year. A couple of days after the little boy's birth, Tomlinson was pictured struggling to get a carseat into his car outside Jungwirth's family home in Calabasas.

And it’s not just 1D’s Tomlinson who’s on cloud nine following the birth of his son. Evidently feeling some grandmotherly pride, Tomlinson's mom, Johannah Deakin, reposted the picture her son shared later on Wednesday night, captioning the snap: "My boy with his boy – Louis & Freddie."
