Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Liam Payne finally confirm pregnancy rumours

For weeks, former X Factor judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has been hiding her rumoured baby bump behind oversized coats and scarfs.

Now, while the ex American and British X Factor judge has still refused to confirm verbally that she is pregnant, she was seen sporting a huge bump while at a carol concert with her boyfriend Liam Payne, from boyband One Direction.

Cheryl wore a tight olive green dress stretched over her bump and left her coat unbuttoned while the two watched the St James Christmas Carol Concert in London, which was themed around the nativity.

Souces close to the couple say Cheryl, 33, and Liam, 23, have already officially told family and friends their good news, but that they will not be discussing it publically. Cheryl’s spokesperson has said she will not be making any public statement.

Entertainment reporter Dan Wootton has appeared on television saying that he had been told by sources that the couple had told close friends and families. He said she was “totally ecstatic, happy” and had been very open about discussing her pregancy with her friends and family. He said that there were also publically unknown personal reasons behind her decision not to go public with her happy news.

Proceeds from the charity event they attended are set to be split between The Prince’s Trust and Cheryl’s Trust. Her charity focuses on helping young people living in the North East of England, where she grew up.


Cheryl and Liam first met on the X Factor when she was a judge and he was a 14-year-old schoolboy auditioning for the show. Cheryl has, so far, been married twice; first to premiership footballer Ashley Cole, but the pair split when she found out he had been cheating, and then to restaurateur Jean Bernard Fernandez-Versini, who she divorced just a few weeks ago.
