Chezza's ex-bandmates are delighted to hear her baby news
We couldn’t be happier for Cheryl and Liam Payne RN.
The couple announced that they’d welcomed their first child on Saturday, both uploading an adorable Instagram snap of Liam, 23, cradling his newborn son.
Liam had captioned his version of the image: ‘My close friends and family know there are very few times when I’m left speechless… wow! 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 I have so far. 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. We haven’t named him yet but he’s already capturing hearts including mine. I feel very blessed. Happy Mother’s Day everyone!’
On her page, 33-year-old Cheryl wrote: ‘On Wednesday 22nd March Liam and I became parents to an incredibly beautiful, healthy baby boy, weighing 7lb 9 and looking like a dream. Although he still doesn’t have a name he is already stealing hearts. We are all madly in love and overwhelmingly happy with our little arrival. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers around the world. A day that now has a different meaning to me forever.’
Of course, the couple have been inundated with congratulatory messages from friends and fans alike. Cheryl’s ex-Girls Aloud bandmates are no exception, with all four ladies sending her and Liam sweet messages on Twitter and Instagram.
