The couple announced the arrival of their little boy on Saturday, but Harry appeared to have something else on his mind...
AAAHHH! It’s finally happened… Cheryl and Liam Payne have welcomed their first child into the world.
The couple announced their big news on Saturday night, both uploading an insanely 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, everyone is utterly thrilled for Chiam. And the fact that they’ve been so secretive over the past nine months made their confirmation that little bit more special.
Comments from fans included: ‘Congratulations and wish a lot of love to your family! 💜,’ and: ‘OMG I’m so happy for both of you I bet his name will be something so cute and adorable I love you both and I love your little incredible boy💙.’
But there was one person who had something else on their mind on 25 March – Harry Styles.
Yep. Instead of sending his best wishes, Liam’s One Direction bandmate actually almost overshadowed him, by revealing his debut solo single.
A dramatic advert aired during The Voice, which suggested that he’ll be dropping his track on 7 April.
While some Tweeters have accused Harry of ‘ignoring’ Cheryl and Liam’s news, we’re pretty sure the commercial would have been planned well in advance. Coincidences happen, right?
And who’s to say he hasn’t sent the pair his private well wishes? We know the 1D lads are still close, so it’s very likely.
Whatever the case, we’re sending a huge congratulations to Cheryl, Liam AND Hazza. 2017 is panning out pretty amazingly for One Direction so far.
