One Direction may or may not be on an extended hiatus, but the next generation of matching jean jackets and truly superb hair is already here. Last night, Louis Tomlinson (the one that isn't Harry, isn't Zayn, isn't the blonde one who made out with Selena Gomez, and isn't the one that's fond of posting shirtless selfies) shared a photo of his newborn baby. Also revealed: his name, which is appropriately British-sounding.

"Meet my little lad, Freddie," Louis captioned the photo, in which his son can be seen clutching to his many chest tattoos. He then tweeted "Freddie Tommo," just in case there were any 1D conspiracy theorists who were still convinced his name was Conchobar. His middle name, which Freddie's mother Briana Jungwirth revealed on Instagram, is Reign, which feels fitting for the future ruler of the One Direction fandom.

It's also important to note that hair-wise, Freddie appears to be on track to accomplish his forefathers' legacy.
