Are Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Liam Payne Expecting a Baby?
A fan spotted Cheryl’s mother, Joan Callaghan, shopping at Mothercare -- a UK chain catered to expectant mothers -- where she reportedly purchased two white pillows specifically designed for pregnant women.
A source told the Sun about Joan's visit, saying, "She had a massive pregnancy pillow which helps make your bump more comfortable when you’re trying to sleep. She was asking the assistant for advice about another kind that she wanted."
Another source close to Cheryl, however, told the Mirror the items weren't for the Girls Aloud singer.
"It’s for one of her daughters in Newcastle," they said. "Joan does have lots of grandchildren."
Regardless, fans and media outlets have latched onto the growing rumors of the "I Don't Care" singer's possible pregnancy. A recent L’Oreal advertisement where Cheryl's face looks fuller as enough proof, in their eyes, that she may be expecting, according to The Sun.
Neither she nor Liam have addressed the rumors either way, but Cheryl hasn’t been photographed in public for several weeks -- save for one photo posted by her team that doesn't show her stomach -- leading some fans to believe she's trying to conceal a growing baby bump.
News of her relationship with the "History" singer was confirmed earlier this year via PEOPLE, who reported the pair had struck up a romance in December 2015, after One Direction appeared on the X Factor finale to give their final performance before the group's indefinite hiatus.
