We're so happy for you, Cheryl!

Words by Jadie Troy-Pryde

Cheryl and Liam Payne have been the talk of the town over the last few months despite stepping out of the spotlight, thanks to the mystery surrounding her rumoured pregnancy.

Remember when the ratings for The One Show sky rocketed thanks to 99.9% of us rushing home to see if Cheryl was going to announce that she was expecting?

But she didn’t. Instead she stepped out at a carol concert in December to show off her ‘bump’, but according to Will I Am it could just be a beer belly.


However, former Girls Aloud pals Sarah Harding and Kimberly Walsh have added fuel to the fire by randomly dedicating Instagram posts to Cheryl over the last few days.

Is this their way of congratulating Cheryl for giving birth to baby Chiam?

The Internet seemed to think so and therefore exploded. One fan even commented on Sarah’s post with: ‘Kisses to the missus? Are you hinting that Cheryl had a baby daughter?’

Not entirely sure how that works, but okay.

And now Cheryl has finally returned to social media for the first time in weeks with a very sweet and emotional message for everyone waiting to hear from her.

She took to Instagram to tell fans about her involvement with The Princes Trust and her happiness that they had found a centre in Newcastle.

‘Part of me is still pinching myself!’ Cheryl wrote.

‘For your continued love and support, I am eternally grateful. Here’s to changing lives. Love you.’

Cheryl has been actively involved with various charities, climbing Mt Kilimanjaro for Comic Relief in 2009, and setting up her own charity, Cheryl’s Trust, which was created in order to inspire young people to realise their full potential and get their lives back on track.

Good for you, Cheryl.
