Cheryl Cole officially confirmed she’s expecting a baby with Liam Payne in an Instagram post on Thursday.
After months of speculation, the British star finally confirmed her pregnancy in a shoot for a new ad campaign for The Prince’s Trust and L’Oreal Paris. Alongside a picture from the shoot, in which the pop star can be seen holding her hands underneath her stomach, Cole wrote:
As Gossip Cop reported, Cole was spotted in November sporting what appeared to be a growing baby bump. The couple, however, who first met on the set of “The X Factor UK” in 2008, had refused to comment on Cole’s pregnancy, despite her being pictured with a bump on numerous occasions.
The surprise announcement comes only hours after Payne made a surprise appearance at the 2017 Brit Awards to accept the Best British Video of The Year Award on One Direction’s behalf. The former “X Factor” judge and singer started dating a year ago, and from Cole’s Instagram post, the new arrival isn’t too far away.
