Simon Cowell isn’t the only X Factor family member expecting a new addition in 2014. Also awaiting the arrival of the stork is One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson.

Um what? Louis is going to be a dad? Nope, not yet. The 21-year-old boy bander is just welcoming more siblings to his already large family!

“I was just texting with Louis Tomlinson last night because his mom is pregnant and is going to have the baby the same time as [Simon’s girlfriend] Lauren Silverman,” the X Factor judge tells People. “So it’s like, who is going to go first? I think I am going to win.”

We’re not surprised the reality TV kingpin would make a competition out of the birth of his first child. Louis does already have him beat on one front, however; his mom, Johannah Poulston, and her partner, Daniel Deakin, are expecting not one but two babies!

Twins seem to run in the family. Louis already has eight-year-old twin sisters, Phoebe and Daisy, in addition to two younger sisters, 14-year-old Lottie and 12-year-old Felicite.

Simon’s son is set to join the Cowell Crew in February while Louis’s new sibs are due in “late spring or early summer.” Perfect. That should be plenty of time to baby-proof the X Factor set.
