Cheryl Cole (33) and Liam Payne(23) have (finally) welcomed a baby boy into the world. Cheryl gave birth to a bouncing baby boy on 22 March 2017 and Liam announced his baby’s arrival by posting a picture of himself and his little bundle, on Instagram. Liam gushed that the birth of his first child had left him speechless, noting that it is his favourite memory thus far. Liam also thanked his beautiful baby mama for bringing their baby into the world. He has already noted that she is an incredible mother.
The baby hasn’t been named just yet but we’ll definitely let you know when he has been! Cheryl has noted in the past that she likes the name ‘Alfie’ and Liam has also had his two-cent contribution with the name ‘Taylor’ in mind.
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!
The couple met on set of X-Factor UK (2009) back when One Direction was originally formed. The meet cute happened when Liam was only 14 years old. The two only got together, however, when Cheryl was going through her second divorce with ex-husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini at the beginning of 2016. The ten-year age gap has caused much conversation, especially among loyal Directioners. Although, there was suspicion that Cheryl was pregnant, she only officially revealed she was in her first campaign with L’Oreal and The Prince Trust, when she was already 8 months pregnant. Cheryl admitted that she was scared to announce her pregnancy in fear that she would be ‘jinxing her happiness’.
Liam has previously shown his love and dedication to Cheryl by getting a tattoo of her eye on his arm. This isn’t the only tattoo Liam has had done in tribute to his girlfriend, though. Liam also has roses tattooed on his arm that are similar to the roses tattooed on Cheryl’s back.
