By now, I’m sure you’ve heard of the conspiracy theory that claims Louis Tomlinson and Briana Jungwirth’s baby, Freddie, is simply a hoax to get people to stop thinking about Larry Stylinson. It’s ridiculous, yet at the same time, still somewhat intriguing. (If you haven’t, just check out this BuzzFeed article, published this morning.)
The way I see it, there is only one direction that this theory can take, which is–spoiler alert–that the baby is totally real and totally adorable. Read on to find out why I think so.
People say the baby isn’t real because the images seemed Photoshopped. Well, I bet that Louis’s management just slipped up a lot when Photoshopping certain images, which happens all the time. And I know you’ve seen those videos. His management planned on using Briana’s pregnancy as much as they could to ensure it was talked about. They basically used her for the publicity. They also slipped up when tweeting about Freddie’s birth. Maybe they realized they hadn’t tweeted about the baby yet? Either way, they maybe could’ve skipped the specific date, because it was off, and Babygate isn’t going to die anytime soon. Also, the reason they mainly keep Freddie out of the limelight is likely because they don’t want their infant child to be subjected to the scrutiny of the 1D fanbase, and because maybe they suspected something like this was going to happen. And remember how Hollywood Life published the baby’s birth certificate? Yeah. Not looking so fake now. As for the similarities to a baby doll, I once again blame bad Photoshop, courtesy of Louis’ management. The BuzzFeed article mentioned that Briana leaving the hospital seemed staged because she wasn’t in a wheelchair. IT PROBABLY WAS BUT THAT DOESN’T MEAN THERE IS NO BABY! She probably just didn’t want the real pictures circulating on the web. People are vain nowadays, you know. Also, in the BuzzFeed article, it was mentioned that some people have pointed out how badly the Photoshop seems in some pictures. News flash: people lie. They could’ve easily lied about the images and have made it seem more dramatic than it actually is. They say Louis Photoshopped those pictures? Maybe all of these so-called photographers and obsessed-with-details 1D fans are the ones doing the Photoshopping. You ever think of that? I bet you didn’t. In conclusion, I have to say that the baby is real and people are just delusional. And, just saying, I don’t remember any rumors (or at least not any that are as detailed as this!) that Saint West wasn’t real, and how long did it take for Kim and Kanye to release a picture of him? (That, you know, wasn’t of his hand.)
Anyway, I probably repeated some things a few times, but the main takeaway is still that the baby is real, at least in my opinion (and the opinion of my mother and one of my friends). I want to know what you guys think, too, so comment and I’ll try not to judge you if you believe it!
In the meantime, let’s find another conspiracy theory to obsess over. Like The Pixar Theory–which, let’s be honest, is most likely true. I mean, have you read that book? Jon Negroni is a genius! If you haven’t read it, you should read that or his essay on it right here.
