Niall Horan Reckons Liam Payne 'Must Be Nervous' About Becoming A Dad
So is this confirmation of the Cheryl and Liam baby then?
The cat (or should we say baby?) seems to be out of the bag and it comes via Niall Horan, who appears to have just confirmed that One Direction pal Liam Payne and partner Cheryl are indeed expecting their first child.
While the pair are yet to make a formal announcement about their news, there have been a fair few pics of Chezza seeming to be working a bit of a bump over the last few months and now Nialler's had a few rather sweet words to say about his mate becoming a dad.
"I'm looking forward to it," Niall apparently told the Daily Star about welcoming the second baby into the extended 1D fam.
"Liam hasn't said he nervous but I'm sure he is. I bet he can't wait as well. It is a very exciting thing in your life."
When asked if he'd been surprised by the baby news, Niall added: "He's great and she's lovely, it will be a lovely child."
Dawww, how cute is that?
Payno is currently off recording in LA so it sounds like 2017 is going to be a big year, both in terms of family and potentially in terms of some new solo music too.
