Louis Tomlinson’s family just got bigger by two! The One Direction band member has two new siblings; his mom Johannah Poulston and her partner of two years, Daniel Deakin, welcomed twins on Monday, February 10.

The additions make 22-year-old Louis the eldest of seven! Johannah has five daughters with ex-husband and Louis’ stepfather, Mark Tomlinson.

Babies Ernest Rupert Atholl and Doris Poppet were born prematurely at a hospital near Louis’ hometown of Doncaster, about three hours north of London.

“[Louis] met Ernest and Doris and fell in love with them,” a source tells The Sun (via The Daily Mail). “Family is massively important to him so he was made up that he was not abroad and was able to meet them so soon after they were born.”

1D is currently taking a short break from touring with the band likely to appear at next week’s Brit Awards at London’s O2 Arena on Wednesday, February 19. The boys are up for three awards including Best British Group.

The X Factor family is also set to welcome one other new member this month: Simon Cowell’s baby boy! Simon just announced he’ll be returning to The X Factor UK next season; the last time he judged on the show was the same year 1D made its debut.

Congratulations to Louis and the rest of the family!
