Cheryl Cole (34) and Liam Payne welcomed their first child, a baby boy, in March 2017. Cheryl spent most of the time while she was pregnant out of the spotlight. This weekend Cheryl returns to The X Factor as she joins Simon Cowell during the Judge’s Houses stage. Cheryl told The Sun:
‘I hated being pregnant. A lot of stuff went on and I just didn’t enjoy it. It changes your life completely but in the most amazing way. But I’ve had the best six months of my life. Really.’ ‘I didn’t stop for 14 years — literally on the roller coaster. And then when I got pregnant I thought, “Right, I just don’t need this stress.” So I relaxed.’
Cheryl and Liam confirmed their romance in February 2016. Their romance came just months after she split from ex-husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini. As for whether her pop career will ever take a front seat, she says that sh is ‘thinking about it’ but time with Bear is a priority. Aside from life as a new mum, the singer has promised fans she is back in the studio working on new music while juggling the demands of bringing up Bear without a nanny.
