Singers Cheryl Cole and Liam Payne are pregnant with their first baby. The former Girls Aloud member and her one decade younger One Direction beau have confirmed the rumor that was going on and on for months!

The confirmation for the pregnancy did not came from the mouth of any of the two. However, on Tuesday, 33-year-old singer Cheryl Cole was photographed out in London with her boyfriend, 23-year-old Liam Payne and her baby bump said it all. They were on their way to see a Christmas carol concert.

E! reports that, based on sources, Cole is in her second trimester with the pregnancy, as neither of the two has wanted to comment on the matter.

Cole and Payne started dating back in February, but did not make the relationship public until three months later, at a charity event.

However, the two have first met way before. In 2008, when she was 24 and he was only 14. That time, Payne was at an audition for X Factor. Then, they met again, in 2010, when he auditioned again. That time was the lucky one, since it led to the formation of the popular boyband One Direction.

Rumors about a possible baby on the way started in September, when Cheryl’s mother has been seen shopping for baby goods, such as a pregnancy pillow and a wedge for baby bump support. Cheryl’s fuller face in the recent L’Oreal ad and her clothes that seemed more covering every time added fuel to the speculation.

In early October, however, former bandmate Kimberley Walsh said some things that seemed to confirm the gossip. “She’s really happy right now. And she’ll be a brilliant mum. She has loads of nieces and nephews, so she’s used to the madness of children”, the 34-year-old former Girls Aloud member told Sunday People.
