Beginners’ pluck as Freddie joins in dad’s guitar lessons
HE MIGHT have become a father at 23, but Louis reckons he was more ready than most to become a dad.
He said it was ‘life-defining’ when he had Freddie, who turns two next month, with Briana Jungwirth. And now he takes joy in learning the guitar with his mini-me.
‘I had already been excited about becoming a dad,’ Louis said. ‘I am not going to say I was ready for it, but I was more ready for it than some people.’
Sharing his jam sessions with Freddie, he revealed: ‘His first toys were a guitar, drums and a microphone. I am learning the guitar at the moment, so I am often playing around him.
‘When I am playing the guitar he does it himself.’
■ FELLOW accidental dad Simon Cowell was the perfect person to lean on when Louis learned he was to be a father. ‘Simon was one of the first people I spoke to when I found out about Freddie,’ said the singer. ‘He has great perspective and no bulls***. I always feel better for having chatted to him.’
