Wow, the rumors are TRUE! Liam Payne & his girlfriend Cheryl Fernandez-Versini are expecting their 1st child together! And while baby rumors surrounding the couple had been flying for months, we are so excited to EXCLUSIVELY confirm the news about the One Direction star & his ladylove! See the revealing photos of her baby bump here.
This is SO exciting! Liam Payne, 23, and his girlfriend Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, 33, are about to be parents! And we can hardly believe that all of the rumors were true! Liam and Cheryl seemingly confirmed the happy news on Nov. 29 when they stepped out together and Cheryl was clearly rocking a large baby bump. But while the coupe have remained tight-lipped about their bun in the oven, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that the two are in fact expecting a little one!
Liam and a glowing Cheryl arrived at the fair of St. James Christmas Carol concert in London on Nov. 29 looking completely in love while the TV personality displayed her prominent bump. She wore a fitted knitted dress and black leather boots, which looked amazing on her newfound pregnancy curves! There’s no question the brunette beauty knows how to rock a baby bump.
But let’s be honest, while Liam and Cheryl’s pregnancy news is definitely exciting, we can’t say that we’re TOO surprised by it. Don’t forget that the couple had been swarmed by baby rumors pretty much since they began dating back in February. But while sources had said that the two had been trying for a baby for a few months, it wasn’t until September that the rumors REALLY seemed probable!
It all began when Liam changed his Twitter bio to read, “the luckiest man in the world” in early September. Fans obviously took notice right away and immediately assumed it must mean that Cheryl is finally with child. Not long after, on Sept. 13, Cheryl debuted a “fuller face” while appearing in a L’Oreal ad. Of course, once again, fans jumped to conclusions.
But perhaps the most telling piece of evidence of all was when Cheryl’s mom, Joan Callaghan, 57, was photographed purchasing maternity pillows later that same month, in a baby goods store called Mothercare.“She had a massive pregnancy pillow, which helps make your bump more comfortable when you’re trying to sleep. She was asking the assistant for advice about another kind that she wanted,” a source revealed to The Sun at the time.
We’re just happy that the news is finally out and that we can all celebrate the happy occasion with the expectant couple! After all, we just know they’ll make amazing parents. And if Liam needs any fatherly advice, he can always turn to his longtime friend and bandmate Louis Tomlinson, 24. Congrats again, you two!
Tell us, HollywoodLifers — are you surprised that Cheryl and Liam are actually expecting their first child together? Or did you call it all along?
