Showing that baby bump
The happy news of the couple expecting a baby wasn’t confirmed until November last year, but even though Cheryl only announced her pregnancy until February this year. The former singer showed up her baby bump on multiple occasions.
The singer made her bump debut in a photo shoot for L’Oreal and The Prince’s Trust and looked stunning.
Pretty much in love with his dream girl
The couple first met back in 2010, when Liam was competing on The Ex-Factor and Cheryl was a judge in the series. The mentor, 10 years older than Liam, and the former 1D felt an instant connection.
They started dating last year and made their red carpet debut at Eva Longoria’s Global Gift Gala in Paris, last May. Cheryl was awarded the Global Gift Philanthropist Award in the occasion.
Payne said in an interview about Cole, “Obviously I have the most beautiful girlfriend in the world and she’s absolutely amazing, she’s been my dream girl since I was younger. She’s so ace.”
