But now that the 33-year-old expecting her first child with boyfriend Liam Payne, he couldn’t be happier for her.

Will praised Cheryl for keeping her big news secret for so long, telling the panel: ‘You know, you have a bunch of thirsty folks and for her to keep that private with all the details is amazing.

‘I have known her for a long time and she’s been in and out of bad relationships but this one seems to be the one that’s nurturing and bearing fruit.

She’s believed to be due this month, and speculation rose that she was about to go into labour when close family members arrived in London on Thursday.

According to CelebsNow, Cheryl’s mum Joan Callaghan and brother Garry Tweedy are now both in town.

They’ve reportedly been spotted coming and going from a central London hotel, where Cheryl’s staying as she prepares to check into a nearby private hospital.
