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!
