Social media is buzzing after former Girls Aloud singer Cheryl Cole stepped out with a huge “baby bump”.
After two failed marriages, Cheryl started dating the hunky One Direction star Liam Payne earlier this year.
The two met when he auditioned for the UK’s X-Factor. She was on the judging panel.
Fans were surprised in February when they went public with their relationship because there’s a 10-year age gap.
Liam is 23 and Cheryl is 33, and although the couple have yet to confirm whether they will soon be parents, social media has been on baby bump watch and concluded she is going to give birth next year.
A friend of the couple fanned the flames when she told E Entertainment that Cheryl is already in her second trimester.
British tabloids also spotted Cheryl’s mom Joan Callaghan buying baby clothes and a pregnancy pillow and are now convinced it was for the X-Factor judge.
It could also be that Ma Joan was shopping for the grandkids she already has, but almal is convinced it was for Cole’s first baby.
The hashtag #CongratsLiam trending on Twitter this week has not helped end the pregnancy rumours.
But Liam recently signed a solo US record deal and that is why fans started the hashtag, not to congratulate the dad-to-be.
