He's actually given the tot a rather common name -- definitely NOT Sydney Rain.

He's only a few days in and already Louis Tomlinson is a doting dad. The One Direction star took to Twitter to share his first photo with his newborn son -- whose name, as it turns out, is actually Freddie, and not Sydney Rain as was previously thought.

Meet my little lad, Freddie

"Meet my little lad, Freddie," the singer captioned the beautiful black and white photo on Instagram, in which he's carefully cradling the infant.

After receiving an ecstatic outpouring of love from fans on the post, he tweeted, "Thank you so much for the all nice messages :)"

Freddie is the 24-year-old's son with Los Angeles stylist Briana Jungwirth, reportedly an ex-fling of his.

"Louis is doing everything he can to provide for mother and baby," a source told Britain's The Sun newspaper. "He’s very wealthy but is still being hugely generous in the amount he is giving."

"He’s taking being a dad very seriously.”
