On Sunday, Briana Jungwirth posted a video to Instagram of her (almost) 4-month-old baby, whose dad is One Direction's Louis Tomlinson, and wished herself a Happy Mother's Day. In the post, the 24-year-old stylist is cooing to her baby son Freddie Reign and giving him kisses, just regular mom and baby stuff. He is a real baby, by the way, despite what some One Direction fans seem to think. That's absolutely, definitely, one hundred percent real human baby right there.
She captioned the post:
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 scrutinized 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.
This isn't the first time she's shared Instagrams of Freddie (like the one from four weeks ago, below) but some fans are convinced the baby isn't real. As she says in her caption, Jungwirth has been harassed online by these conspiracy theorists. Take one look at her Instagram page, and you will see people calling her a "liar" and fans arguing amongst themselves in her comments.
It's true that she and Tomlinson are not together anymore, but just because a relationship is over doesn't mean the baby isn't real. God, if only it were that easy.
