It's official! The couple are now parents
We’re sending the BIGGEST congratulations to Cheryl and Liam Payne right now… they’ve welcomed their first child! AAAAHHHH.
Liam Payne broke the news on Instagram on Saturday night, revealing: ‘I’m incredibly happy to welcome our new baby boy into the world, it’s a moment that I will never forget for the rest of my life and my favourite memory…’
He added: ‘I’m completely in awe of his incredible mother and how she has been the whole way through this, she’s really made my dreams come true.’
The happy news comes just weeks after Cheryl, 33, confirmed her pregnancy, unveiling her blossoming (and completely gorgeous) bump in an inspirational new campaign for L’Oréal Paris and The Prince’s Trust.
Entitled All Worth It, the project aims to help raise the confidence of 10,000 young people across the UK who are struggling with self-doubt, something that Cheryl admits she suffered from as a teen.
Glowing and relaxed, she looked happier than we’d ever seen her. Laughing in a video, her message was both inspiring and heartfelt: ‘What makes us different makes us beautiful.’

Despite rumours about Cheryl and Liam’s little one flying around for so long, they never actually spoke out about the baby speculation. One Direction’s Liam, 23, even stayed quiet during his acceptance speech at February’s BRIT Awards.
He did accidentally spark speculation that Cheryl had given birth earlier this month, when he Tweeted: ‘Why do I always do the strangest walk when I’m trying to be quiet in a morning 😂😂.’
Replies included: ‘Who are u trying not to wake up this morning 👀 ,’ and: Were you trying not to wake baby? [sic].’
But now, after an age of waiting, we really DO have baba Chez in the world. And we couldn’t be happier for the couple.
We mean, just THINK of those genes…
