Cheryl Cole has shown off a prominent bump in a recent campaign for L’Oreal, confirming that she is pregnant rumours that she is pregnant with Liam Payne’s baby.
The former Girls Aloud singer posed for the photograph along with celebrities such as Dame Helen Mirren and Katie Piper, published in conjunction with a Prince’s Trust new programme.
The picture is for The Prince’s Trust and L’Oreal Paris to launch a three-year collaboration, entitled “All Worth It”, to help raise the confidence of 10,000 young people across the UK who are struggling with self-doubt. The trust will be offering a confidence training programme in 18 of its centres.
The former X Factor judge, 33, has previously refused to comment that she and her One Direction boyfriend, 23, were expecting a baby, although she had been pictured at an event with a noticeable bump on display.
Cheryl said: “As a long-standing supporter of The Prince’s Trust and spokesperson for L’Oreal Paris I am so happy to support this partnership. Young people are currently facing more and more problems with self-confidence and we have to address these issues as a real priority.” She added:
“My hope is that this partnership will help young people feel accepted and valued for who they are and make sure that they get the support they need to make the most out of life.”
Rumours that Cheryl and Liam are wanting to start a family together has been a hot topic for a while, however, they have both maintained a low profile and a social media blackout for the past few months.
Cheryl met One Direction star Liam Payne, when he appeared as a 14-year-old contestant on the The X Factor in 2008 when she was a judge on the show.
Cheryl changed her birth surname Tweedy to Cole when she married Ashley Cole in 2006 and then became Cheryl Fernandez-Versini following her marriage to Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini in 2014. She now goes by just her forename, Cheryl.
With all the gossip from the Brit Awards last night, it seems Cheryl has stolen the thunder with her announcement.
