It has finally been confirmed that One Direction singer Liam Payne and his partner, former X Factor judge Cheryl, are having a baby!
However, confirmation came not from Liam and Cheryl making any public comment and was instead as Cheryl was spotted at a charity event this week while making no attempt to hide her baby bump.
Both Cheryl and Liam were beaming as they posed for pictures hand-in-hand at the event. And as mentioned above, it was the first time that Cheryl has displayed her baby bump rather than attempting to disguise it.
But of course, Cheryl and Liam’s family and friends have known about the pregnancy for months, and are obviously delighted for the couple.
However, according to HollywoodLife, Liam’s One Direction band mate Louis Tomlinson has been giving the dad-to-be a few tips about becoming a father for the first time…
Louis was of course the first of the One Direction lads to become a father when his son Freddie was born in January of this year. So he’s had nearly a whole year to learn the baby ropes.
And he has apparently told Liam that the best advice he can give him and Cheryl is to get as much sleep as they possibly can now before the baby arrives!
An anonymous source is quoted as saying, “Louis is more than happy to teach him the ABC’s of fatherhood,” before adding, “Louis of course is already teasing him that he will never sleep in again…
“His advice [is] sleep as much as you can while you can!”
And as to how Liam’s One Direction band mates have reacted to his happy news, and the insider added, “All the guys are excited for Liam, they think he’ll make a great dad.”
We’re sure he will too, and we literally cannot wait to see pictures of Cheryl and Liam with their baby!
But will their baby make his or her world debut in time for Christmas?
Well, Cheryl certainly looks as though she could be due to give birth any day now, and a Christmas baby would surely be the best present ever for the gorgeous couple.
