During her latest interview, Rebecca was asked what she thought about the rumours that Cheryl is expecting her first child with her One Direction beau, Liam Payne. The 30-year-old said, ‘Any baby news is good news.

‘Liam is a really lovely person, he’s so nice and I wish them well.’

According to the report, Rebecca later added that she ‘really doesn’t know’ whether they’ll make good parents, but described Liam as ‘great.’

Aw.

So, does the TV personality keep in touch with her former mentor?

‘No, we never really did speak other than on the show,’ she exclusively revealed to OK! Magazine.

Some have speculated about whether Rebecca has hinted at a feud between herself and the Fight For This Love singer, as she reflected on her time on the show, saying, ‘It was a tough time and it wasn’t how it was painted.’

Hmm. We’re not too sure what she means by that.

This comes as fresh footage has surfaced from last year’s X Factor final, showing Cheryl and Liam embracing after he took to the stage to perform with his One Direction bandmates.

There has, of course, been a lot of attention surrounding their relationship since ‘pregnancy’ rumours surfaced, and this only gained momentum when the 33-year-old was pictured with a blossoming ‘bump’ a few weeks ago.

Either way, we’re so pleased to see her happy.
