A source close to Cheryl has exclusively revealed to LOOK how the star's *really* handling all those baby rumours...
How happy does Cheryl look right now?! Glowing, the 33-year-old singer was the centre of attention at the L’Oréal Paris Gold Obsession Party in Paris last week, where she appeared to be showing off a hint of bump after five weeks in hiding. And it meant that bookmakers stopped taking bets on her and Liam Payne making a big announcement.
‘We no longer think it’s a viable market to bet on as the pictures seem to suggest a baby is on the way,’ says William Hill’s Joe Crilly.
But with fans demanding to know if she’s expecting 23-year-old Liam’s baby, and Cheryl disabling her Instagram comments, seemingly in a bid to silence the speculation, it’s now been revealed how she’s really been coping…
Cheryl’s been ignoring the rumours and instead keeping herself busy by splurging on some incredible new gear for her and Liam’s pad.
It’s natural that she’d want to redecorate and make everything perfect for any new arrivals. Famous pals like BFF Kimberley Walsh and even Khloé Kardashian, who’s a doting aunt to Kim and Kourtney’s kids, have been helping her find the best furniture.
An insider tells LOOK: ‘She’s also trying to fly in her best pal, interior designer Janine Lazard, to help put the finishing touches to what she hopes will be the nursery.’

Cheryl, who’s previously stated: ‘I was born to be a mum,’ has also confessed that of course she’s thought about baby names.
‘I’m obsessed with babies’, she said. ‘Of course I’ve thought about baby names a million times. I like Alfie for a little boy’.
With Alfie and Harry the most popular predictions for a boy, Alice, Joan, Olivia, Harper and, er, Nadine, are currently the favourites for a girl, according to a recent poll.
