A congratulations are in order for One Direction’s Liam Payne and his girlfriend, former X Factor judge, Cheryl Cole! The couple welcomed a baby boy into the world this past week. After keeping the news of their newborn son’s birth a secret for a number of days, both 33-year-old Cole and 23-year-old Payne took to Instagram to share a photo of Payne holding the baby.
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!
The One Direction singer states in his Instagram post, “My close friends and family know there are very few times when I’m left speechless… wow!” He then goes on to wish Cole, and all the other mothers out there, a happy mother’s day (March 26th is mother’s day in the UK).
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’s girlfriend, Cheryl Cole, published a similar post to Instagram, stating, “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.” She also goes on to wish mothers a happy mother’s day.
Payne is the second member of the One Direction family to become a father, second to Louis Tomlinson who has a one-year-old son.
We can’t wait to hear what the pair decides to name the baby, and we hope to see more pictures of their little bundle of joy in the future! Congratulations to the couple!
