We’ve speculated for months before Cheryl posed avec baby belly last month that she had 1D heartthrob Liam Payne were expecting a tiny person. The date was never known, and no announcements or even acknowledgement was made about the upcoming birth, leaving the fandom in a right tizzy as they contemplated another of their lads becoming a dad.
Well, it happened. March 22, 2017, baby boy Payne was born. Weighting in at 7lbs 9oz, the tiny tot is as of yet unnamed, but in a post from both parents showing Liam holding his newborn son, he is already a little heart breaker.
Cheryl made the following announcement on her Instagram:
Could there be anything cuter than Payno holding a mini-him? I certainly cant think of anything. And he was quick to follow on his own IG with the same picture and similar message of excitement.
Of course, their famous friends have taken to social media to congratulate the new parents, as well as the One Direction fandom. There have already been mentions of 1D tot play dates between the littlest Payne and his pal Freddie Tomlinson.
My ovaries may have exploded at the thought.
Endless congrats to the new parents! Enjoy every moment!
