The star continues to keep mmmum (sorry) about her growing belly, despite months of speculation that she and the One Direction singer are reportedly expecting their first child together.

The pair met in 2008 when Liam auditioned for ‘The X Factor’.

Clips of their first encounter show judge Cheryl telling a baby-faced Liam: “I like you, I think you’re really cute, I think you’ve got charisma, come on, give us that cheeky wink!”

Seven years on, they’re the hottest couple in showbiz and are starting a family.

Cheryl is absolutely blooming in these pictures taken on Tuesday night and sources at the concert say she was ‘thanking well wishers and was totally ecstatic.’

The former Girls Aloud star is said to be ‘celebrating privately and has told close friends and family the exciting news but has held off talking to the press, because she’s battled issues in her private life and starting a family is something she has so desperately wanted for so many years.’

Cheryl intends to cherish the moment and according to The Sun newspaper, there isn’t going to be an official announcement and this is her way of telling the world.

Congratulations Cheryl and Liam!
