Cheryl is rumoured to be having a baby with her boyfriend Liam Payne
Cheryl, 33, has been the subject of much speculation recently. She is said to be expecting her first baby with One Direction singer Liam, 23, and the rumours intensified after Cheryl was pictured with what appears to be a baby bump.
While Cheryl is in the UK, her boyfriend has been in Los Angeles, recording his debut album. Liam took a well-deserved break over the weekend, heading to Las Vegas where he partied at nightclub Intrigue.
Sharing a photo of himself and DJ Zedd standing in the DJ booth together surrounded by fans, Liam wrote: "Great fun tonight impromptu sing along with my brother @zedd let's get it #vegas."
