The pair took to Instagram to post a picture of Liam holding his son and each posting their own message for fans. Cheryl‘s message was : “On Wednesday 22nd March 2017, Liam and I became parents to an incredibly beautiful, healthy baby boy, weighing in at 7lbs 9oz and looking like a dream. Although he still doesn’t have a name yet he is already stealing hearts. We are 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.”
One Direction star Liam was equally overwhelmed with his announcement with the same picture as he praised Cheryl: “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!”
Speculation grew late last year that Cheryl was expecting as she was pictured in press pictures for L’Oréal campaigns with a very small baby bump. Both Cheryl and Liam haven’t publicly confirmed the happy news that they would become parents until this evening. Fans have respectively pressed the pair for keeping themselves out of the public eye to enjoy the time together before their pending new arrival.
UKSU would like to send their congratulations to both Cheryl and Liam on the same arrival of their baby boy.
