‘No further comment will be made and they ask for their privacy to be respected.’

The divorce has been a long time coming, with Cheryl now happily loved up with Liam Payne, who cryptically appeared to reacted to his lady’s big news with a thoughtful Instagram post.

Aww.

The couple have been shrouded in rumours that a baby could be on the way ever since Cheryl stepped out sporting what looked like a small bump at the L’Oreal Paris Gold Obsession party in the French capital last month.

And 1D fans practically lost their minds when the hashtag #congratsliam started trending on Twitter earlier this week, with many thinking it meant that him and Cheryl had finally confirmed their rumoured baby news.

But alas! It was simply a celebration of Liam’s new solo album, which he’s currently recording in LA.

Naww.

We hope Cheryl doesn’t get too lonely over in the UK with her man away! At least she’s finally a free women, and able to live her life just how she wants to with her One Direction beau from now on…
