Cheryl has opened up about her post-baby weight body and she’s not happy

You go, Cheryl.


You go, Cheryl.

Cheryl welcomed her first baby, a son called Bear Payne, with partner Liam Payne in March this year.

‘On Wednesday 22nd March Liam and I became parents to an incredibly beautiful, healthy baby boy, weighing 7lb 9 and looking like a dream,’ she posted to her Instagram, announcing the news. ‘We are all madly in love and overwhelmingly happy with our little arrival.’

The 33-year-old singer has understandably been keeping a low profile since the birth, choosing to lay low and spend quality time with her baby in his first few months.

But even she had to break her silence to rubbish some rumours about her post-baby weight loss, taking to Twitter to reveal that it is ‘completely made up.’

The reports that Cheryl has been following a strict weight loss regime were published in Closer magazine, disclosed by an ‘insider’, something that the new mother is not happy about.

‘Cheryl didn’t want to have people staring at her in the gym or at classes so Shane goes to her house,’ explained the source, referring to personal trainer Shane Collins. ‘Cheryl has been on a sugar-free plan, which has helped her enormously, and has managed to wean herself off the chocolate and ice-cream treats during her pregnancy.’

Never one to let unfair rumours or criticism slide, Cheryl was quick to point the reports out as false.

‘Why don’t we just allow @CherylOfficial to be a new mum and enjoy the time without focusing on her body?’ posted friend and personality Michelle Visage to Twitter, to which Cheryl replied, ‘That coupled with the fact it is completely made up.’

You go, Cheryl.
