Sharing the same picture, Cheryl wrote on her Instagram: “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 (sic)”
Rumours first spread that Cheryl was expecting in September 2016 when Cheryl’s mom was spotted buying maternity products.
The couple continued to fuel rumours after attending the St James Christmas Carol Concert in London in November with the 33-year-old wearing a tight fitting olive-coloured dress, showing off a growing baby bump.
Liam's son is the second to join the celebutots club in One Direction. Louis Tomlinson was the first when welcomed a baby boy, named Freddie, in January 2016.
