And no, it's not the one you think...
When Cheryl stepped out with Liam Payne at London’s Nobu last week, we were more than excited to see the couple together after nearly a month apart.
And what a month. While Cheryl attended the L’Oreal Paris Gold Obsession Party in Paris on October 2nd sporting what looked like a growing bump, Liam was in LA recording new music. And absence clearly makes the heart grow fonder, as LOOK can reveal that Cheryl has something new on her mind – she’s busy planning a ‘commitment ceremony’ after Liam reportedly sprung a proposal on her… of sorts.
Yep, the 23-year-old One Direction star has apparently popped the question to the former Girls Aloud star, following his trip to LA, and it’s even understood that he stuck to tradition by asking her dad for approval first.
‘Liam wants Cheryl to know how dedicated he is to her and to them being a family’, an insider exclusively told LOOK. ‘It prompted him to ask her dad Gary Tweedy’s permission during a secret meet-up in Newcastle.’
The couple’s exciting news comes just as it was reported that Cheryl and ex Jean Bernard Fernandez-Versini’s decree nisi will be read at the High Court in London on Thursday of this week, effectively ending their marriage.
And with JB reportedly telling New: ‘It’s been a tough year, I’m trying to move on. I’ll never think badly of her. She is a great girl’, it sounds like even he’s giving his blessing to his ex and her new man.
And Cheryl’s keen to show just how much she loves Liam to all her family and friends. ‘Cheryl is desperate to plan a commitment ceremony with Liam’, says our source. ‘They want an ‘unofficial wedding’ of sorts to show their devotion to one another in front of family and friends’.
The source added: ‘She’s putting in calls to a wedding planner and asking her stylist to source wedding gowns’.
