On July 20, 2014, One Direction's Louis Tomlinson was among the four out of five members of One Direction who attended the wedding of Tomlinson mother Johana (also known as Jay), who wed Daniel Deakin. One Direction's Harry Styles, Liam Payne and Niall Horan were at the wedding, but One Direction's Zayn Malik was not there. The Daily Mirror has paparazzi photos of One Direction at the wedding. Jay has also been tweeting photos from the wedding.

According to WENN: "Tomlinson sported a navy suit and brown shoes. He shielded his eyes from the sun with a pair of aviator glasses. Horan also looked dapper in his suit which he teamed up with a striped shirt and a dark green tie. Payne was seen arriving at the ceremony with his girlfriend Sophia Smith, wearing matching black ensembles. Styles, meanwhile, opted for a chic look consisting of an unbuttoned shirt, matching pants, a hat and black shoes. Tomlinson's sister Lottie served as one of her mother's bridesmaids."

Eleanor Calder (Tomlinson's girlfriend since 2011) also attended the wedding.

This is the third marriage for Tomlinson's mother and the second marriage for Deakin. Dan and Jay got engaged in March 2013.

Jay and her first husband, Troy Austin (who is Louis Tomlinson's biological father), split up when Louis was 2 years old. Louis is now 22. Jay married her second husband, Mark Tomlinson, not long after her first divorce, and they had four daughters together: Lottie (who is now 14), Felicite (who is 13) and twins Phoebe and Daisy, who are 9. Louis took stepdad Mark Tomlinson's last name. Jay and Mark Tomlinson got divorced in 2011.

Jay and Dan Deakin have twins (son Ernest and daughter Doris), who were born on Feb. 10, 2014. According to the Daily Mirror, Jay and Dan live in the house in Doncaster, England, that he used to live in with his ex-wife Elaine.

One Direction is the biggest-selling worldwide act to emerge from "The X Factor." The group came in third place on "The X Factor" U.K. in 2010. By 2012, One Direction had No. 1 hits and sold-out tours in several countries. One Direction also makes millions in merchandise sales.

In March 2013, Austin gave an interview with the Sunday Mirror to beg Louis to let him back into his life. In the tabloid interview, Austin said that Louis has been too busy for him and his 14-year-old daughter, Georgia, who is one of Louis' half-sisters. Austin claims that Louis has met Georgia only three times in her life and that he has not spoken to Louis in several years. In the interview, he admitted to being a deadbeat dad and said that he regretted not being in Louis' life for most of Louis' childhood. Austin also claimed that he was not seeking any money or favors from Louis now that Louis is rich and famous.

On March 24, 2013, Louis Tomlinson tweeted this statement in an apparent response to his father's interview with the Sunday Mirror: "I'd like to start off the day by saying a big f*ck you to 'the mirror' :) on a happier note huge love to all out fans, you keep us going!!"

As previously reported in August 2013, Jay and Deakin were accused of being shameless lovers because he left his wife for her, shortly after he and his wife experienced the stillborn death of their baby daughter, according to the Daily Mirror.

Jay was a midwife during the baby's stillborn birth, which happened in June 2011. In October 2011, the spouses were divorced, after Dan Deakin (a former shop assistant and bank adviser) had left his wife Elaine, 39. And by December 2011, he and Jay Tomlinson were lovers, according to the Daily Mirror.

According to the Daily Mirror: "A complaint to the Midwifery Council about Jay was rejected as they accepted that her sexual relationship with Dan did not begin until December 2011. It is believed this was just a few weeks after Dan had walked out on Elaine at the end of November 2011."

Jay commented to the Daily Mirror: “No, I did not deliver the baby. I was a midwife. There were 17 midwives there. I don’t want to talk about it – so we’ll leave it at that!”

Dan has been accompanying Jay on jet-set trips to hang out with One Direction during the group's world tours. The Daily Mirror notes that he has been enjoying the benefits of being part of One Direction's inner circle: "He has been flying on a private jet, wearing designer clothes and driving a Porsche while joining the band at various points on their world tour."

Jay and Dan live in the house in Doncaster, England, that he used to live in with his ex-wife Elaine.

Dan and Jay (who announced their engagement on Twitter) have been frequently tweeting about their love for each other and have even compared themselves to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, which has fueled speculation that their romance started as an extramarital affair.

An unidentified close friend of Elaine's told the Daily Mirror: “Elaine has been put through hell. Dan’s leaving was completely out of the blue. I felt so sorry for Elaine, she had no idea there was anything wrong in her marriage. They are such a lovely family but they’ve been put through hell.

"She was due to give birth any day when they discovered the baby was stillborn. Jay was in such a personal position with Dan and Elaine at such a heartbreaking time in their lives. I don’t know how those two can live with themselves.

“Now all they do is flaunt their love on Twitter and Facebook for everyone to see. They even compare themselves to Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. I’m glad the truth is finally coming out now.

"Elaine is a beautiful soul and does not deserve the pain they have put her through. Everyone in Doncaster is sick of them shouting about their love online. Where is their compassion for Elaine? Their disrespect is unbelievable.”
