Cheryl Finally Confirms Pregnancy With Maternity Shoot

After months of speculation, Cheryl has finally confirmed that, yes, she and boyfriend Liam Payne are expecting their first child.

Cheryl cradles her belly while wearing a bump-hugging black dress on the latest cover of the U.K.'s Daily Mirror under the headline "Cheryl & the bump!" The photo was snapped as part of a campaign for The Prince's Trust and L'Oreal Paris' collaboration titled All Worth It, which aims to raise the confidence of 10,000 young people who are struggling with self-doubt.

"As a long-standing supporter of The Prince's Trust and spokesperson for L'Oreal Paris I am so happy to support this partnership," the former Girls Aloud singer says (via Daily Mail). "Young people are currently facing more and more problems with self-confidence and we have to address these issues as a real priority. 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."

Cheryl, 33, and boyfriend Liam Payne, 23, first met on The X Factor before he shot to worldwide fame with One Direction. Rumors suggest they began secretly dating in late 2015 but the duo went public with their relationship in early 2016, shortly after Cheryl announced the end of her 18-month marriage to her second husband, French restaurateur Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini. The singer was previously wed to footballer Ashley Cole from July 2006 until September 2010.
