Oh Baby! Cheryl Cole And Her Huge Bump Step Out Alongside Liam Payne

No confirmation necessary: Another One Direction baby looks to be on the way!

After months of speculation that Liam Payne’s girlfriend Cheryl Cole was pregnant with the couple’s first child, new photos of the British pop singer rocking an undeniable baby bump seem to finally put the rumors to rest once and for all.

Liam and Cheryl stepped out hand-in-hand Tuesday evening at the St James Christmas Carol Concert in London, and in her figure-hugging dress, it was hard to deny the presence of the lovebirds’ soon-to-be little one.

Additionally, a source tells E! News that Cheryl is indeed expecting and currently in her second trimester. Neither star has ever engaged with the rampant speculation or responded to official requests for comment. During their latest outing, an insider dishes to us that Liam was very attentive to his leading lady, “walking behind Cheryl at some points with his hand on her back.”

The “Drag Me Down” crooner, 23, and The X Factor judge started dating in February of this year, eventually taking their romance public three months later at a charity gala. Cheryl first met Payne when he auditioned at age 14 for the U.K. singing competition series in 2008 and then saw him again at age 16 when he tried out in 2010, which led to the formation of One Direction.

Rumors that the pair were set to become parents sparked in September, when the 33-year-old’s mother was spotted purchasing pregnancy products. Cue a Twitter storm courtesy of the 1D fandom.

Since then, Cheryl’s recent maternity-inspired wardrobe (oversized coats and sweater dresses anyone?) has caught the attention of many.

And despite both Liam and Cheryl keeping their lips sealed, Cheryl’s former Girls Aloud bandmate Kimberly Walsh told the Sunday People, “[Cheryl’s] really happy right now. And she’ll be a brilliant mum. She has loads of nieces and nephews, so she’s used to the madness of children.”

Well, there you have it. Congratulations on the wonderful news!

Cheryl ‘focusing on children as she supports new Childline campaign’ amid pregnancy rumours

Cheryl is putting her focus on helping children as she is reportedly set to front a new campaign from charity call service Childline.

The singer is said to have filmed footage for a series of emotional and heartbreaking adverts for the NSPCC, which will see her sitting on a stool and talking at the camera.

However, The Sun reports that her Geordie accent will be replaces by the voices of various Childline callers, with the star miming over them for the campaign.

“The adverts are sure to get a lot of people talking,” a source told the newspaper. “They’re very emotive and there’s no gimmicks. Cheryl was delighted to be asked to take part in the ads as it’s a cause very close to her heart.”

Cheryl, who has been hit with wild speculation she could be pregnant, kept covered up as she stepped out recently in an oversized camel coat. She has yet to address the rumours.

A studded black bag was slung over one shoulder and she wore a large pair of oversized sunglasses. Earlier this week, the former X Factor judge was forced to disable comments on her Instagram posts after fans bombarded her with questions amid increasing speculation she’s ready to start a family with her boyfriend, One Direction star Liam Payne.

Cheryl’s picture showed her staring into the camera with a ‘crown of butterflies’ around her head.

After disabling comments, fans spoke out to condemn speculation and “unnecessary hate”. One wrote: “Upsets me that Cheryl felt the need to turn her Instagram comments off because of the unnecessary hate she is getting.”

“It p**ses me off that it got to the point where Cheryl has to turn her instagram comments off bc of the hate 1D fans give her,” another wrote.

“So annoying that Cheryl had to disable her Instagram comments because of absolute idiots,” another said. Cheryl has continued to remain tight lipped over sensational claims she’s ready to start a family with her man.

Spotted recently during Paris Fashion week, she looked glowing as she showed off a healthy, fuller figure, looking far from her worryingly slim frame just months ago.

Revealing a slim waist and fuller cheeks, the star looked happy and healthier than ever, as she joined stars at the L’Oreal Gold Obsession Party during Paris Fashion Week.

Wearing a black sequinned outfit, she remained covered up for the event, wearing her brunette locks loose and straight. The appearance has sparked a bizarre trend on Twitter however, as fans post the hashtag “#condomcampaignfor1d”.

One fan wrote: “What’s happening #CondomCampaignFor1D.”

While another added: “I think the boys are on hiatus #CondomCampaignFor1D.”

And one wrote: “LIAM?? BAMBINO??OHMIODIO#CondomCampaignFor1D.”

While neither Cheryl nor Liam have addressed ongoing claims they’re ready to start a family together, it hasn’t stopped their huge fandom from speculating.

And now it’s claimed she’s ready to marry the former One Direction beau too.

A source told Heat magazine: “Cheryl has moved on and is ready to start a new life with Liam. He means everything to her, and she’d marry him in a heartbeat.”

We have contacted the stars’ reps for comment.

Simon Cowell Hints That Cheryl Cole Could Be Pregnant

It’s hard to believe that Simon Cowell has worked with Cheryl Cole longer than he’s even known Liam Payne. Over the years, it’s quite obvious that Simon and Cheryl have built a very close relationship with each other!

But how much does he really know about Cheryl and Liam’s romance? Apparently A LOT!

Simon reportedly spoke with the The Mirror and hinted that Cheryl could already be pregnant or is planning on getting pregnant with Liam! When asked about the baby rumors, he said, “I guess that is what happens when you are with someone.”

The Mirror wrote that Simon said this with a “knowing smile,” meaning that he probably knows something we don’t. OMG!

The X-Factor judge went on to say,

Cheryl would be an amazing mum. I have seen her with my son Eric and other kids over the years and she in incredible. She is very good with them. I think she is in a good place in her life right now. I had dinner with her a couple of months ago with Liam and they were great.

No. Freaking. WAY. You guys, this is seriously huge news. If anyone knows anything about Cheryl and Liam’s baby plans, it’s going to be Simon. Not only has he worked with Cheryl for years but he’s basically like a father to Liam!

We’re so excited to see if the couple has a big announcement for fans in the coming months!

Cowell told Cheryl to leave her ‘screaming’ ex at home – but X Factor boss insists he had no part in split

Simon Cowell has lifted the lid on the night he told Cheryl Fernandez-Versini to leave her “screaming” hubby at home. Cowell said he warned her ex Jean Bernard over his behaviour after a bizarre run-in at the X Factor studios. But the talent show guru – talking in Los Angeles as he works on America’s Got Talent – denied he played a part in Cheryl and JB’s marriage split, reports the Sunday People.

Simon, 56, said: “There was one night where his behaviour was out of order. Cheryl had an act in the bottom two or something.

“He was up on his feet, he was screaming, he put his hand across his neck at me.”

Cowell, motioning as if to slit his throat, added: “I went ‘hang on a minute, this is a competition it is not my fault’.

“I just said afterwards to Cheryl it might be better if he doesn’t come down and watches it at home on TV and jump on as many sofas as he wants.

“Their marriage breakdown had nothing to do with me, I got on fine with him, I just think he got a bit over-excited when he came down to the shows occasionally.” Simon’s comments came as Cheryl, 33, seems happier than ever with her pop star fella Liam Payne, 22. She and the One Direction star got together last December after her marriage to Frenchman JB, 35, crumbled. Sources suggest Cheryl and Liam are trying for a baby and smiling dad-of-one Cowell says: “Cheryl would be an amazing mum. I have seen her with Eric and other kids and she is incredible. I think she is in a good place right now.

“I had dinner with her a couple of months ago with Liam and they were great. I saw her the other night and she was on great form. “She stays in contact by phone and text and is good, but I do think she misses working with me.” Cheryl quit the X Factor after a tough 2015 which saw the judges under fire as ratings slumped. Cowell says: “It was stressful. Cheryl probably picked up on that a bit and with the marriage breaking down at the same time, it is not an ideal place when you are on live TV every week.”

The telly guru will be in the US for the next couple of months for the 11th series of America’s Got Talent, which he is judging for the first time. Ratings topped 15 million this month and the average of 13.4mllion is the best in five years.

The talent is strong and Cowell has high hopes that acts like cute 12-year-old musician Grace Vanderwall and 14-year-old opera singer Laura Bretan could become stars in Britain as well as America.
