It’s a boy! Cheryl and boyfriend Liam Payne have welcomed their first child together. Their son, who is yet to be named, was born on Wednesday, March 22, at London’s Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.

The new parents took to their respective Instagram accounts on Mother’s Day to share the happy news. On March 26, both of them shared a photo of a polaroid featuring the One Direction singer cradling his newborn. 

Under the sweet photo, Cheryl wrote that the baby weighs 7lb 9oz and is “already stealing hearts.” She shared that they are “madly in love” and wished her fans a happy Mother’s Day.  

Liam wrote, “I'm incredibly happy to welcome our new baby boy into the world, it's a moment that I will never forget for the rest of my life and my favourite memory I have so far.” He also took time to show appreciation for his girlfriend and wrote that Cheryl has made his “dreams come true.”

Cheryl and Liam, who have been dating for over a year, have been quite reserved about their personal lives until now. They didn’t even officially announce their pregnancy; it was only confirmed when a pregnant Cheryl made an appearance in a campaign photoshoot for Prince’s Trust and L’Oreal back in February. 

Congratulations Cheryl and Liam!
