Cheryl has privately told her close friends and family that she is expecting her first child. The former Girls Aloud singer was spotted with boyfriend Liam Payne last night showing off a bump as they attended the Fayre of St James Christmas Carol Concert.
After social media went into meltdown over the news, a source has revealed that while the star’s family have been told about the news, she has “no plans” to announce it publicly. “Cheryl has told close friends and family the very exciting news that she is expecting her first child,” said an insider. “She is absolutely ecstatic. It’s something she has been trying for for years.”“She doesn’t want to speak publicly about it for a number of reasons, particularly due to some of the battles she has gone through in her personal life in recent years. The fact is she has wanted a child desperately for so long and at one point it looked like it would never come,” the source added to The Sun.
