New direction: changing diapers.
This is Liam Payne, of One Direction and all of your illicit fantasies, and his beautiful and successful girlfriend, Cheryl.
Cheryl is a superstar in the UK, mainly for her various hit singles — like “Fight for this Love” — and being a judge on The X Factor.
And —SURPRISE — Payne posted a photo holding their son on Saturday morning.
Payne captioned the photo, “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 favorite memory I have so far,” Payne posted. “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!”
Cheryl posted the same image, with the caption, “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,” Cheryl said. “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.”
