Louis Tomlinson's hosting of the Believe in Magic Cinderella Ball last night was a great success.

The One Direction hunk hosted the Believe in Magic Cinderella Ball at the Natural History Museum in London, UK, last night to raise money for terminally ill children.

Hitting the red carpet with his mother Johannah, Louis - who is currently expecting a baby with his friend Briana Jungwirth - was beaming.

"Wow,what an incredible night! I hope Meg , Jean and my beautiful Mum feel very proud for creating such a fantastic night for everyone !!!" he wrote on Twitter, referring to charity Believe in Magic's founders Meg Bhari and her mum Jean.

"Thank you so much for everyone who helped and attended tonight !! (sic)"

During the evening guests made hefty donations, with Louis himself said to have given a generous £2 million.

His bandmate Liam Payne also attended and was spotted getting his face painted to resemble a tiger. Reports claim the 21-year-old splashed out £50,000 for the fun artwork and he's also said to have won a Mulberry bag among other prizes with his bids.

Magician Dynamo provided entertainment throughout the night and Louis made sure to thank his guests on Twitter following the event's success.

"@Dynamomagician thank you for tonight mate !! Sorry we didn't get to catch up ! (sic)" he wrote.

Making the bash more accessible, fans were able to get their hands on tickets for £500 or could split a table of ten at £4,500 between them.

It's an exciting time for Louis at the moment; the 23-year-old revealed earlier this month that he is "buzzing" about his impending fatherhood. He and Briana were first spotted hanging out earlier this year, but it's thought they will remain friends as they become parents.
