After Louis Tomlinson’s mother Johannah Deakin tragically lost her battle with leukemia at just 43 years old, one of the first people to send condolences to the former One Directioner was Liam Payne’s girlfriend, Cheryl. You can check out her heartbreaking message to Louis right here.
Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, 33, is absolutely here for Louis Tomlinson, 24, during this awful period. “@Louis_Tomlinson my heart breaks for you,” the X Factor judge tweeted on Dec. 9. “I am so sorry. My thoughts are with you and your loved ones at this incredibly tragic time.” The singer is reportedly pregnant with Louis’s former One Direction bandmate Liam Payne’s baby, and as she prepares to become a mother herself, we can only imagine how she’s feeling for Louis right now.

The singer still plans to perform on The X Factor tomorrow, Dec. 10, and it will involve a tribute to his mother, who was reportedly looking forward to her son’s performance. That just breaks our hearts, but we’re glad Liam is going to go ahead with the appearance.
Johannah Deakin died from leukaemia on Dec. 7, and the family issued an official statement to share the sad news. She was 43. “It is with immeasurable sadness that Johannah Deakin’s family said goodbye to Johannha in the early hours of Wednesday, Dec. 7,” the family said. “Earlier this year Johannah was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of leukaemia that required immediate and continuous treatment. We respectfully request that the family are given time and space to grieve in private.”
Cheryl isn’t the only one to send her sympathy. Naturally, thousands of fans have taken to social media to express their condolences for Liam, and #RIPJohannah immediately began trending the morning of Dec. 9. Our hearts go out to Liam and his family.
