Cheryl and Liam Payne have sparked some *very* exciting rumours

Last week, Kimberley Walsh – who’s currently expecting her second child with husband Justin Scott – opened up about how excited her BFF Chezza is about her new arrival.

Speaking of her Girls Aloud girl gang, Kimberley told The Sun: ‘We spend lots of time together and they absolutely love Bobby so I have no doubt that they’ll spoil the new baby too!’

When asked directly about Cheryl’s possible ‘news’, Kimberley kept schtum, simply explaining: ‘She’s one of my best friends and I never speak about her personal life.’

Cheryl and Kimberley Walsh have remained close since Girls Aloud split back in 2013

However, she’s now opened up about what kind of mama she thinks Cheryl will be when the time comes, telling The Sunday People: ‘She’s really happy right now. And she’ll be a brilliant mum.

‘She has loads of nieces and nephews, so she’s used to the madness of children. Both she and Nicola [Roberts] are naturally good with kids.’

So it’s not exactly a confirmation. But it definitely seems like Chezza’s in a great place for starting a family, right?

And Kimberley isn’t the only person to ponder a hypothetical Chiam bubba.

Cheryl has revealed that her and Simon often have secret late-night rendezvous...

Simon Cowell is hoping to be godfather to Cheryl’s future son or daughter

Cheryl’s ex-X Factor boss Simon Cowell has also fuelled the fire, telling the Daily Express: ‘I can’t confirm but I expect to be godfather.

‘And I expect the child be called Simon. Or Simone.’

LOLz. TBH, Liam’s career began when One Direction formed on The X Factor back in 2010, so it could be a go-er…
