The One Direction star treats Daisy and Phoebe to a day of go-karting following the death of sister Félicité Tomlinson
Louis Tomlinson has been pictured for the first time since the death of his younger sister Félicité Tomlinson, who passed away suddenly aged 18.
The 27-year-old posed for pictures with his siblings at a go-karting track to mark twins Daisy and Phoebe’s 15th birthday.
The One Direction star’s family shared the snaps on social media, but commented on how ‘difficult’ the day was without their late sister ‘Fizzy’.
Birthday girl Daisy posted pictures of them having fun in their helmets, but told fans it was a 'difficult' day in the wake of her sister's death.
Captioning one snap with a heartfelt message, she wrote: “I always knew today was going to be difficult but my fam have made it so much fun. Birthday go-karting... I did come last place though.”
Louis' sister Lottie, 20, also took to Instagram to document the family day out, sharing photos of her famous brother taking poll position on the podium, as well as snaps of the twins.
She captioned one image: “One last happy birthday to my girls. I can't tell you how proud I am of you both. I know today was hard but you are so strong. I'm the proudest sister in the world, love you more than you'll ever know.”
The birthday celebrations come just 10 days after the sudden death of their sister, Félicité, who died on March 13, 2019, of a suspected heart attack.
She was found last week at her fourth-floor studio apartment in Earls Court, West London.
It's the first time Louis has been seen in public since the tragedy.
