A huge congratulations is in order for Liam Payne and Cheryl, who have just welcomed their first child into the world on March 22, 2017. The news comes on the heels of Cheryl's top secret pregnancy, with both parents writing sweet messages for their baby boy's debut.
The 1D crooner wrote a heartwarming message for his child's Instagram debut.
"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," he wrote.
"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 shared the same photo on her Instagram, writing "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 💙."
For the past nine months, she has laid low and only been seen out once with her baby bump. It was at the end of November that Cheryl and Liam attended the St. James Christmas Carol Concert in London. She was wearing a form-fitting dress with the bump on display and the Internet basically exploded with excitement! Now, the baby is finally here.
Liam and Cheryl's love story is anything but normal. They met when Liam first auditioned for the X-Factor over six years ago. Cheryl actually didn't vote to put him through to the next round, which is super ironic now considering he became a bigger star in the music world than she did. Regardless, their friendship blossomed and when One Direction went on hiatus, these two were starting to be seen together.
Now, they have a family of their own and fans can't wait to watch them grow old together. The only thing left to wonder is, will Liam's babe meet Freddie Tomlinson anytime soon? We have a feeling they would be really, really good friends!
Once again, congratulations to Liam, Cheryl and all of their family and friends on the wonderful news!
