Cheryl made a spectacular return to the spotlight as she attended the L'Oreal Paris Gold Obsession Party on Sunday. The star showed off her stunning curves as she stepped out in a figure-hugging black jumpsuit, amid reports that she is expecting her first baby with boyfriend Liam Payne.

Having taken care to cover her stomach earlier in the day when she arrived in Paris, Cheryl made no attempt to hide her midriff during her appearance. She certainly brought added sparkle to the event in her jumpsuit which featured a daring see-through sequinned panel and which skimmed over her tummy.

Cheryl stepped out for the L'Oreal Paris Gold Obsession Party on Sunday

Cheryl, 33, hasn't been seen out in public for some time, and has been noticeably absent on social media. Last month, her PR team shared a rare photo of the star, but the majority of her stomach had been cropped out of the snapshot. Then, just last weekend, rumours of Cheryl's pregnancy escalated even further when her mum Joan Callaghan was pictured buying pregnancy items in Mothercare last weekend, including maternity pillows.

Cheryl has been dating One Direction star Liam, 23, since February of this year, and the pair are clearly very much in love. Liam recently shared a sweet public message for Cheryl on Instgram to tell her how much he was missing her during his time away in LA.

All eyes were on the star's stomach amid reports she is expecting her first baby

Along with a snapshot of the pair wearing matching mud face masks, the singer wrote: "I miss you!... the things you make me do. Home soon!" followed by a series of smiley face emojis. The post proved incredibly popular with the couple's fans; in just four hours it had racked up a whopping 460,000 likes.

A short time earlier, Liam sent social media into a spin when he changed his Twitter bio to claim he is the "happiest man in the world" – seen by fans as another indicator that the couple are expecting.
