Baby HAS been born? One Direction’s Liam Payne & partner Cheryl already had their baby?

As you’re sure to be aware, One Direction star Liam Payne and his partner, former X Factor judge Cheryl, have taken the conscious decision not to make any public comment at all about their baby news…

They chose instead to let time and nature speak for themselves. So when Cheryl’s baby bump became too large to disguise with voluminous coats and cunningly designed outfits, the news was finally out.

However, because the couple have kept mum over their joyous news, then obviously only those close to them know when their baby will make his or her world debut…

But again, it’s not rocket science to guess how advanced a pregnancy is based upon bump size. And in someone as slender as Cheryl, a sizeable bump would indicate that she is well into her pregnancy.

And based on the photos of Cheryl and Liam Payne at a charity event in early December, we would guess she was, at the time, 7 and possibly even 8 months pregnant.

Therefore, in short, Cheryl and Liam’s baby should be due to arrive any day now. But of course, there’s no way to know that the tot hasn’t already arrived…

After all, the couple kept their pregnancy news a secret for months, so what’s to say that their baby isn’t already here and safely tucked up at home with his or her mummy and daddy?

Either way though, whether Chiam’s baby is already here or yet to arrive, at what point will Cheryl and Liam announce the birth of their baby? WILL they even announce the birth of their infant?

Well, of course, there’s no obligation for them to, but that said, their fans would no doubt be desperately disappointed if they didn’t…

And we’re sure that both Cheryl and Liam Payne are very much aware of that. So our guess is that the couple will choose to share the happy news about their baby’s arrival on social media.

We reckon they’ll shun magazine deals and so on and instead make the decision to post photos on Twitter or Instagram.

However, we also think that Cheryl and Liam are going to be fiercely protective of their child’s privacy, so while we think they may well share some pictures, we don’t expect them to share dozens as the baby grows up.

What do you think?

Will Cheryl and Liam Payne announce their baby’s arrival in an informal way on social media?

Or do you think they will do as they did with the pregnancy news and literally say and do nothing?
