Aw. If Cheryl is expecting, 23-year-old Liam will be the second 1D lad to become a dad.

While Cheryl, 33, is yet to confirm her ‘baby’ news, she’s always had a very firm stance on how she’d like to raise her children.

Speaking about family and motherhood in the 2009 Girls Aloud book Dreams That Glitter, she said: ‘I’m glad I wasn’t brought up in a privileged situation, because you see some kids and all they’ve known is expensive clothes and getting all the latest models of this and that, and that’s not experiencing life.’

Cheryl was one of four children, brought up on a ‘tough’ council estate in Newcastle.

She added: ‘I’ll definitely let my kids know that life’s not a bowl of cherries and yes, you might have wonderful things, but believe me, you’ve got to appreciate them.

‘There’s no way they’ll get everything they want.’

If Cheryl and Liam are about to start a family, we reckon they’re going to be pretty awesome parents.
