Former One Direction member Liam Payne and singer/X Factor host Cheryl Coleannounced the birth of their first child on March 25, 2017.
“My close friends and family know there are very few times when I’m left speechless… wow!” Payne wrote on Instagram. “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 favourite memory I have so far.
“I’m completely in awe of his incredible mother and how she has been the whole way through this,” the then 23-year-old continued, “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!”
Cole and Payne first met on the ITV talent competition when Payne was only 14 years old. “I think you’re really cute,” Cheryl told him at the time. “I think you’ve got charisma and you give us that cheeky little wink.”
Little did the two know they’d go on to fall in love!
