This year has seen a plethora of A-listers expanding their families, with Beyoncé reportedly having welcomed her twins last month, George and Amal Clooney jetting their newborns off to Italy for their first holiday, and Rosie Huntington-Whitely giving her baby boy a refreshingly normal name for a celebrity.
But the first to kick of the celeb baby boom was Cheryl and her boyfriend, Liam Payne. They welcomed little Bear Grey Payne in March this year, and have been enjoying life as new parents. Liam has been promoting his solo album meaning that he has been talking publicly about everything from the beyond awkward moment he met Cheryl’s dad when she was already pregnant, to why she almost broke up with him over the phone in the early days of their relationship.
However, Cheryl has kept herself out of the spotlight and has been enjoying life as a new mum away from the public eye. Other than doing the Twitter equivalent of an eye-roll when someone started talking about her post-baby body, she has been very secretive about her private life.
So when she posted a selfie of herself and Liam enjoying date night for the first time since Bear was born, her fans were delighted.
‘Date night,’ she captioned the image of the couple, complete with animal ear filters.
It has already racked up almost 250,000 likes, most likely because it is such a rare insight into Chiam’s life now that they’ve welcomed their little bundle of joy.
The pair were in a car ready to head off on their evening together, and Liam also shared a snap of himself at the same time, albeit a Cheryl-less one.
Stay adorable, Chiam. We’re here for it.
