I mean I guess you could say that today is Christmas Eve, but to me December 24th is all about Louis Tomlinson. Louis was born December 24th, 1991 making him 25 this year!! Can you believe Louis is 25?! A man who has always been connected to his inner child, admittedly immature at times, and always down for a laugh, is turning 25! Louis has had an emotional year to say the least, from the birth of his son to the passing of his mother. He may have had an interesting year and for that reason I have named him the King of 2016. The highs the lows, the hiatus and the coming back in the spotlight, Louis was everywhere this year. To celebrate his 25 years of life here are 25 times Louis was the King of 2016 as shown through this social media.
1. Freddie Reign Tomlinson
Louis’ son Freddie was born January 21st, 2016. Louis completely stepped up as a young father and showered him with love and anything he would ever need. Louis never let the troubles with Freddie’s mother or the horrific things fans said about the child ever get him down. Instead, Louis proudly spoke about his son and shared him on social media for the world to see.
2. The BRITS
In February of 2016, Louis and Liam attended the Brits to present and later win an award. As fans we were dying to see if anyone would show up since they were nominated and technically on hiatus. Louis and Liam pulled through giving us amazing red carpet photos, interviews, and memories.
3. Soccer Aid
A huge event for Louis this year was Soccer Aid where he played on the British team in a charity football match. The fact that he was asked and did this for charity was incredible, but what was even better was Niall being listed as a coach for the opposing team! It was a great day of banter and football all for a good cause. In the end Louis’ team won leaving him victorious with something to always hold over Niall’s head.
4. Year of the Selfie
With the boys on hiatus it was no secret how bad the fans were missing them. Liam took a break from social media, Harry was enjoying his private life, and Niall made a snapchat to keep in touch. What did Louis do? He was active on social media. Louis was always tweeting hoping his followers were well, and doing the most by doing the least, posting selfies. Louis posted over 15 selfies on his instagram this year, keeping us fed and making him king.

22. Twitter Banter
Louis is known for being the one to take the piss out of his fellow bandmates. Although they spend a lot of time apart this year, Louis made sure to keep the sass in high supply
23. Supporting Lottie
Louis is the ultimate supportive big brother. After Lou Teasdale took Lottie under her wing, Lottie has gone on to become her own entrepreneur. With a youtube channel, a spray on nail polish, and now a lipstick line! Louis has supported her through all her endeavors and is so proud.
With the boys on break they had lots more time to invest in romantic relationships. Louis and his girlfriend Danielle Campbell were always out and about going on various dates and adventures. Its so great that he has Danielle by his side through it all. I guess you could say he is very LUCKY.
25. Just Hold On
Saving the best for last, the moment that single handedly made Louis the KING of 2016. Louis lost his mom to cancer which was a horrible end to the year. His mom was so young and the only parent who raised him. Johanna always made sure that Louis knew he was loved and was incredibly supportive. In honor of his mother, Louis released a solo song. The song was set to be released even before his mother passed. Just two days after her passing, Louis went on the Xfactor to fulfill his mothers dying wish, to perform the song. In a moment where most couldn’t even face the public after such a travesty, Louis was so brave and courageous and did the performance. The song has done AMAZINGLY well on the charts and the performance is one that could never be forgotten. It was this moment where Louis proved he could withstand anything, and where Louis was able to see just how loved he is by his fans.
