Lullaby writing time! Baby news for One Direction singer Liam Payne

One Direction’s Liam Payne is going to be a dad.

Baby bump on display

Pregnancy speculation has circled the singer and former UK X-Factor judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini for months.

While the couple are yet to confirm their happy news, there was no denying Cheryl’s baby bump when the pair attended the St. James Christmas Carol Concert in London this week.

Recipe for love: X-Factor, One Direction and a judge

The couple first met in 2010 when Liam competed on X-Factor, a move that catapulted him into stardom as a member in one of the most popular boy bands of recent times, One Direction.

It wasn’t until late 2015 that Liam and Cheryl began dating – news that broke teenage hearts all over the world. The pair haven’t shied away from displaying their affection for each other on social media.

The former Girls Aloud member’s divorce from first husband, Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini, was made official in October, reports PEOPLE.

A week for baby announcements

It is not the only exciting celebrity baby news to report this week.

PEOPLE also confirmed actress Amanda Seyfried and her fiancé and fellow actor Thomas Sadoski are expecting their first child.


The Mamma Mia star shared the exciting news at the launch for a new Givenchy fragrance, Live Irrésistible.

The pair met sharing the stage in the off-Broadway show The Way We Get By last year, and sparks flew when they later began working on the upcoming film The Last Word.

They confirmed their engagement in September this year.

We can just imagine how beautiful both couples’ little bundles will be.
