These two! Liam Payne might be separated from his (possibly pregnant) girlfriend Cheryl, but there's no doubting what - or who - is on his mind.

As HELLO! reported previously, the 23-year-old singer jetted to Los Angeles last Wednesday on a writing trip as he put some more work into his forthcoming solo projects, and spent the weekend partying in Las Vegas following news that Cheryl had been granted a 'quickie' divorce from former husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini.

But having partied the weekend away, the romantic former One Direction singer took to Instagram in the early hours of Monday morning, UK time, to share a sweet image, making sure fans, and the lady in his life, knew exactly what he was thinking about.

"The only lie I ever told you is that I liked you when I already knew I loved you," the clearly-smitten former boybander's message read. He captioned his picture with three emojis: one of a person with their hands up in the air, one of a princess, and one of a rose.

It's not the first time that Liam has made a public declaration of his feelings for Cheryl while being far away from his love.

Last month, during another trip to LA, the 1D heart-throb shared a photograph of himselfand his girlfriend posing with face masks on, again via Instagram.

I miss you!...the things you make me do🤓😋 home soon!

"I miss you!" he captioned that photograph. "...the things you make me do🤓😋 home soon!"

Speculation has been rife for weeks that Cheryl is pregnant with the couple's first child, though both are yet to comment publicly on the reports.

Fans freaked out when photographs of what appeared to be a 'baby bump' were published a couple of weeks ago, and Cheryl's her former X Factor co-judge Simon Cowell did not discourage the reports when he was asked if the pair were trying for their first child.

"I guess that's what happens when you are with someone," Simon told the Mirror. "Cheryl would be an amazing mum. I have seen her with my son Eric and other kids over the years and she is incredible."
