It looks like Cheryl won't want to hire a nanny for her newborn baby boy. The Fight for This Love singer, who gave birth to her and Liam Payne's bundle of joy on Wednesday, opened up about her views on motherhood in the Girls Aloud autobiography Dreams That Glitter back in 2009, calling the idea of being a mum "what life is about". She wrote: "Once I've had a child I’m always going to be a mother and that is sacred; to me that’s what life is about. It’s what I’m doing this for – for my future with my family. I want to be at the point where I can take a year, 18 months, off."

Liam has also kept quiet about becoming a new father, but did open up about his relationship with Cheryl, calling her his "dream girl". "Obviously I have the most beautiful girlfriend in the world and she's absolutely amazing," he told Rollacoaster magazine. "She's been my dream girl since I was younger. She's so ace. She's a wonderful, wonderful person and it's amazing to have someone who can relate to so much of things – someone who's taken greater steps than me. Her solo career was amazing. She’s been in the industry for 14 years now. She fully supports me. We're super happy. It's a very personal, precious time for us. I'm still learning. I'm only 23."
