Cheryl 'won't get a nanny' while boyfriend Liam Payne is away

Last week, Liam Payne and Cheryl all-but-confirmed that Cheryl is pregnant with the One Direction star’s baby when they arrived at a festive carol concert with Cheryl proudly displaying what appeared to be a huge pregnancy bump.

Now it has been reported that the baby won’t impact Liam’s plans for a solo career in 2017, and Cheryl doesn’t plan to get a nanny during his absence.

Speaking to The Sun, a source shared: “Liam is doing what he can to make sure he spends as much time as possible with Cheryl before and after the birth, but some commitments can’t be changed.

“Luckily Cheryl has an incredibly supportive family, who will rally round if they are needed.

“They will also be helping her and Liam after the birth, as Cheryl is saying she doesn’t want to get a nanny.”

Liam is expected to drop his debut solo album next year and apparently plans to spend a few months in California, recording the tracks.

His label-mate, Calum Scott, recently admitted that the star was on track with his album and had already finalised a few songs for the record.

He told BANG Showbiz: “I was in the studio with Liam the other day. I heard a few of his songs. They are sounding amazing. I’d love to do something with him.”

Cheryl and Liam first met when Liam was just 14 years old and auditioned for The X Factor, which Cheryl was a judge for, back in 2008.

The pair’s paths crossed again when Liam auditioned two years later, this time landing a spot in One Direction and going on to achieve international superstardom.

It is believed that the couple first started dating at the end of last year, following Cheryl’s split from French husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini.
