Liam Payne And Cheryl Cole Welcome Child Together

Move over, Louis Tomlinson. You're not the only One Direction star with a kid anymore. Bandmate Liam Payne welcomed his first child with girlfriend Cheryl Cole.

According to The Mirror, Cole, 33, gave birth to their son on March 22, 2017. No word yet on the child's name.

Payne, 23, shared a photo on social media showing him cradling the newborn. Only the back of his son's head is in shot, but still, it's an adorable photo of the new dad and his baby boy.

"My close friends and family know there are very few times when I'm left speechless... wow!" Payne stated in the photo's caption. "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 continued, "I'm completely in awe of his incredible mother and how she has been the whole way through this, she's really made my dreams come true. We haven't named him yet but he's already capturing hearts including mine. I feel very blessed. Happy Mother's Day everyone!"

While Mother's Day isn't for a couple months in the U.S., Payne and Cole celebrated the U.K.'s holiday, which was March 26, 2017, most appropriately with their newborn. What's more, Cole's mother, Joan Callaghan, has reportedly moved into the couple's home to help out with the child.

On Instagram, Cole shared the same photo of her beau holding their child, writing a sweet message: "On Wednesday 22nd March Liam and I became parents to an incredibly beautiful, healthy baby boy, weighing 7lb 9 and looking like a dream. Although he still doesn't have a name he is already stealing hearts. We are all madly in love and overwhelmingly happy with our little arrival. Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers around the world. A day that now has a different meaning to me forever."

According to Us Weekly, the pair began dating in Feb. 2015, though they met in 2008 when Payne auditioned for U.K.'s The X-Factor, on which Cole was a judge. Though they never announced their pregnancy publicly, Cole was first seen with an adorable baby bump in Nov. 2016.

In March 2017, Payne opened up to Rollacoaster magazine about his relationship with Cole, saying, "Obviously I have the most ­beautiful girlfriend in the world and she's absolutely amazing. She's been my dream girl since I was younger. She's so ace." Sounds like Payne's awfully smitten–as he should be with the mother of his child.

While we're sure the couple is enjoying life as parents together, don't expect to see any photos of the newborn hitting the papers anytime soon. The Daily Mail reports that the couple have turned down magazine deals in attempts to preserve their child's privacy.

Congratulations to the couple! We wish the best for you and your little one!
