Watch out Directioners and One Direction fans, there’s a new addition to the One Direction family! No, he won’t be playing in the band…just yet. Liam Payne’s girlfriend, singer Cheryl, announced on Saturday in an Instagram post that she had given birth to a baby boy on March 22nd.
She posted a super cute picture of Payne holding the baby, and wrote besides it,
“On Wednesday 22nd March Liam and I became parents to an incredibly beautiful, healthy baby boy, weighing 7lb 9 and looking like a dream. Although he still doesn’t have a name he is already stealing hearts. We are all madly in love and overwhelmingly happy with our little arrival. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers around the world. A day that now has a different meaning to me forever.”
Payne responded on Instagram,
“My close friends and family know there are very few times when I’m left speechless… wow! I’m incredibly happy to welcome our new baby boy into the world, it’s a moment that I will never forget for the rest of my life and my favourite memory I have so far. I’m completely in awe of his incredible mother and how she has been the whole way through this, she’s really made my dreams come true. We haven’t named him yet but he’s already capturing hearts including mine. I feel very blessed. Happy Mother’s Day everyone!”
Now that the baby boy has been born, Cheryl and Payne are planning on a secret small wedding. Well, Cheryl is. According to OK! Magazine, Cheryl doesn’t want a huge wedding because it will be her third one. She would just want their close friends and family members to be there and have the baby on their laps in the wedding photos. However, according to Closer, Liam would want a huge celebration and he would want to shout about their wedding from the rooftop. Well, maybe he could do that privately on their own roof if he couldn’t persuade Cheryl to make it a big wedding.
The baby has definitely won hearts, just like Cheryl wrote on her instagram post. Other than the millions of fans worldwide who continue giving the couple a lot of support and good vibes, Payne’s family members shared their love for the baby on social media as well. Liam Payne’s mother, Karen Payne, wrote in an Instagram post,
“Finally I can boast that I am a grandmother! The happiest grandmother! I’m very proud of my children. Everything I’ve been doing lately is crying, because I’m very happy, now I have the most beautiful grandson in the world….Thanks God.”
Liam’s older sister Nicola Payne tweeted about the baby,
“What a lovely day today has been!!! I honestly didn’t know love at first sight until today. Xx”
As to how the baby’s doing so far, Payne tweeted only a while ago,
“When the fourth nappy happens in 5 minutes,”
with a gif of Ross from Friends shouting,
“No! No! No!”
so we know the baby is enjoying making Payne or Cheryl work hard for him right now, and he should enjoy it because later on he’s going to be the one working hard learning everything about this new life and how to succeed in it.
We wish Cheryl and Liam Payne all the best in taking good care of this beautiful baby boy and giving him all the love he deserves.The Baby Effect – Liam Payne and Cheryl’s baby! Click To Tweet
