Liam Payne and Cheryl Cole are ready to take their relationship to the next level.

Though we still don’t know if the One Direction singer is actually going to propose to his leading lady, we do know that the couple is ready to expand their family.

Taking to Instagram, Cheryl shared a picture of their pup along with his new dad and revealed that she already considers Liam part of her family! She wrote, “Our new family member ???? he is beyond cute.. ? the dog is adorable too ? @toosmallforteacups thank you ❤️”

It’s so sweet that they’re taking things to the next level by becoming pet parents, but we can’t help but wonder if there’s more to Cheryl’s cheeky little joke.
