It's long been a fact of life that the sight of a One Direction member clutching a baby is one of the most common causes of heart pains for 1D fans, but the sight of them clutching a baby that's their own son is like nothing you've felt before.
So before you view this brand new picture of Louis Tomlinson with his little son Freddie, we're gonna suggest that you arm yourself with a paper bag, maybe an inhaler and/or something to clutch very tightly to express all your feels.
It might be the sweetest thing you'll ever see.
Tommo surprised fans with a shiny new father and son photo late last night, or 'Lad and Dad' as he labelled it in the Instagram caption. Imagine that said in his Doncaster accent and it's really quite magical.
Shirtless Louis (always a lovely bonus) cradles Freddie who's all wrapped up in his blanket, and looks very inch the doting dad as he clutches the Fredster's teeny tiny feet, chubby little wrists and pokes him in the eye.
KIDDING. We're 100% sure that Louis Tomlinson does not poke his child in the eye. Gah, we've ruined the cute vibes haven't we?
Also, we're pretty sure we'd look at Louis with exactly the same facial expression as Freddie is if we were that up close and personal with him. PURE LOVE.
Cute, cayyuuute, cutie cutes and C-U-T-E springs to mind.
