With rumours swirling that Cheryl and Liam Payne could be expecting their first child, Cheryl admits she likes Alfie as a boy's name...

With all the rumours that Cheryl could be pregnant with her and Liam Payne’s first baby, of course, the big question on everyone’s lips is: what could the baby name be?!

Of course, neither camp Cheryl nor Liam have confirmed nor denied the rumours yet, but bookies have already suspended bets relating to Cheryl announcing a pregnancy by the end of the year, with an official statement from William Hill claiming the pictures from Paris to be ‘self-explanatory’.

Cheryl has previously spoken out about wanting children…

‘William Hill are not prepared to accept bets on whether Cheryl & Liam are expecting their first child as they believe that the pictures from Paris Fashion Week are self-explanatory.’

Cheryl stepped out at the L’Oreal Paris Gold Obsession Party in Paris earlier this week in a fitted black jumpsuit, which did nothing to dampen rumours that there could be a baby on the way…

And it sounds like Cheryl’s already got the name of her first baby firmly locked down, if what she told GQ is anything to go by.

‘I’d love kids’, the former Girls Aloud singer previously said. ‘I’m obsessed with babies. Of course I’ve thought about baby names. A million times. I like Alfie for a little boy. I know that’s what I was put on the earth to do. To be a mother.’

Oooh. Alfie Payne? We like!

Liam has also been fairly open about his desire to start a family, previously telling Magic Radio back in August 2015: ‘I wanna have kids when, you know, I have the time but at the moment, life’s so busy and I wouldn’t want to commit to something like that when I haven’t got the necessary time for it yet.

‘That’s my careful planning ahead!’
