It appears that Cheryl has posed for a photoshoot while expecting her first child! Fashion photographer Mariano Vivanco hinted that he was taking snaps of the expecting mother after he posted on social media that he was "shooting someone very special today". He then shared a photo of a studio on Instagram, writing: "My Devine @cherylofficial."

Although Mariano quickly deleted both posts, fans began to speculate about Cheryl's pregnancy shoot. "I'm so excited to find out what this means," one excitedly tweeted. Another added: "I hope it's a pregnancy photoshoot!" Although Cheryl and her partner Liam Payne have yet to open up about expecting their first child together, Liam's One Direction band mate Niall Horan chatted about his friend becoming a dad, telling the Daily Star: "Liam hasn't said he is nervous, but I am sure he is. I bet he can't wait as well. It is a very exciting thing in your life. He's great and she's lovely. It will be a lovely child."
