Where has One Direction star Liam Payne been WITHOUT pregnant Cheryl?

by Lynn Rowlands

Though One Direction singer Liam Payne and his girlfriend, ex-Girls Aloud and X Factor star Cheryl Fernandez-Versini have not confirmed or denied the rumours that they are expecting a baby, at this point, there seems too much ‘evidence’ of a pregnancy for it not to be true.

For example, in a new L’Oreal ad, Cheryl appeared to have a “fuller face”, and in recent – and increasingly rare – public appearances, she’s been unable to hide what looks very much like a baby bump…

However, that neither Cheryl nor Liam have confirmed the pregnancy obviously means that nobody has any idea when their baby is due to make his or her world debut.

And as Cheryl has such a slim frame, it’s not as though anyone can even guess at how far along she is in her pregnancy based on her tiny baby bump. So she could be four months, six or even seven…

So it could well be that the first ‘official’ word from the pair will come only when the baby’s born!

And as Liam Payne was spotted out and about over the weekend – while attending a Justin Bieber concert – without Cheryl, speculation is now rife that she could well be staying at home for the last few weeks of her pregnancy.

Rather annoyingly though – because we are just plain nosey – both Liam and Cheryl are mostly keeping mum on social media, with only a handful of posts between them over the last few months…

We really wish they would either say, ‘Nope, no baby here’ or confirm the speculation by announcing their pregnancy news!

There again, obviously they are fully entitled to their privacy, and awaiting a new baby is a joyous time for any couple. So we can’t blame them if they just want to enjoy it in peace without the press hanging around badgering them about the baby every time they step out of the door.

But what do you think? Will Liam Payne and Cheryl FV break their baby silence at some point?

Or do you reckon they will only do so once the baby arrives?
