Louis and former Hollister model Eleanor have been dating for over a year — and she has been welcomed with open arms by the singer's family. Louis' mum Johannah was among those also posting well wishes on Eleanor's Twitter account, writing, "Happy 21st birthday poppet, love Jay, Dan & the girls xxx."
Johannah recently announced her engagement to Dan Deakin, who proposed while the couple were in Dublin supporting Louis and his 1D bandmates on their 117-date world tour.
'Jay', 40, split from Louis dad Troy when the star was young, and he took on his step-father Mark Tomlinson's name. She still lives in Louis' hometown of Doncaster with daughters Lottie, 14, Felicite, 12 and eight-year-old twins Phoebe and Daisy.
Unsurprisingly, the girls are big fans of pretty University of Manchester student Eleanor — this week, Johannah told her Twitter followers that all four admire their big brother's girlfriend.
Asked by one of her followers whether she liked Eleanor's style, she replied, "Yes I do! My daughters look up to her ❤❤ xx."
Louis is currently in the US with his bandmates, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan and Liam Payne on their Take Me Home tour.
