Cheryl hadn't been seen in public for a while… so COULD there be a mini Chiam on the way?
Nothing would make us happier than one of our fave pop princesses and boyband hunks to have a baby together – but could the rumours that Cheryl and Liam Payne are expecting a baby together really be true?!
Rumours that Cheryl and Liam are eager to start a family together have been circulating for a while - and with Cheryl managing to avoid being papped for weeks as well as maintaining some kind of silence on social media, fans have started putting two and two together.
Cheryl's PR team recently shared this picture of the singer on their Twitter...
It's the first time that she's been photographed for a long, long time and it hugely mysterious.
As you can see, the picture ends above her stomach, meaning that if she were currently pregnant it's been cleverly hidden.
Cheryl's also wearing a loose top, so we really don't know what to make of this!
What do you think?
Liam Payne recently changed his Twitter bio to simply read "the luckiest man in the world" which got fans wondering whether he was alluding to his future fatherhood.

'Louis and Briana, having a baby'
'Liam and Cheryl, having a baby'
I'm not even ready
Cheryl is currently starring in a new L'Oreal foundation advert where fans have noticed that her face is looking noticeably fuller and that she looks glowing and healthy after going through a worryingly slender phase during the break up of her marriage to Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini earlier in the year.
Rumours also surfaced that Liam has been looking to his former bandmate Louis Tomlinson for parenting advice, and a source told HollywoodLife, "While Cheryl and Liam won’t confirm if they are expecting a baby, Liam has been overly keen in asking Louis lots of baby-related questions of late.
“Even Louis thought it was strange himself and asked Liam if Cheryl was pregnant. Liam ducked the question, but it left Louis a little surprised that he was being quizzed about fatherhood so much.”
Neither star has spoken out about the claims, but a source told Now magazine, "Cheryl's never been more determined to have a baby. It's like it's the only thing in the world that matters to her.
"She's never been so focused on something. Cheryl has a stash of pregnancy and motherhood books she's always reading."
It's definitely been one of the fastest-moving relationships ever - less than a year after getting together, the couple have already moved in together and apparently talked about having a family.
They previously shared an image of their 'new family member' on Cheryl's Instagram, but this new baby talk is a whole new level.
Talking to a tabloid, X Factor boss and close friend of the couple, Simon Cowell, said, "Cheryl would be an amazing mum. I have seen her with my son Eric and other kids over the years and she is incredible. She is very good with them. I think she is in a good place in her life right now."
When asked about the reports of the pair trying for a baby, Cowell responded, "I guess that is what happens when you are with someone."
Liam and Cheryl have attempted to keep much of their relationship private since they began dating but have been open with a few close friends, such as Simon and Liam recently sent this cheeky tweet to the Girls Aloud star.

In his interview, Simon also said, "I had dinner with her a couple of months ago with Liam and they were great. I saw her the other night and she was on great form. She stays in contact on phone and text and she is good."
An insider recently told the tabloids, "It’s very serious now between Cheryl and Liam and they have been talking among close friends about starting a family. She’s content and while they’re in the honeymoon period, this feels like a connection for the future.”
“Her dream is to become a mum. But she also wants to get her divorce to JB out the way and be able to have a complete fresh start.”
Cheryl's long time friend Will.i.am also added that Cheryl's happier when she's in a committed relationship, "Cheryl is the best, I love her a lot. I would like to see her happy, steady, constant. Cheryl is the kind of person who will always be happy if she has a steady foreverness."
The couple surprised the world by going public with their relationship after Liam posted a cosy snap of the pair on his Instagram - and new reports suggest it's getting pretty serious between them.
According to heat Magazine, the couple have already pretty much moved in together with a source claiming, "Cheryl has been staying over at Liam's house in Surrey, since late January. She and Liam have practically moved in together - they even bought new furniture to make his place more homely."
Cheryl's apparently brought her chihuahuas, Coco and Buster, along with her too - and it's not like they'll be short on space in Liam's luxury road, where he's lived on his own since splitting with his ex, Sophia Smith, back in October.
As well as spending a lot of time together, the couple have already talked about the prospect of kids, with a source telling Closer, "It's all moving so fast. Cheryl says it's true love and has known Liam for almost 10 years. While she's in no hurry to wed again, she's made no secret of the fact she feels motherhood is in her future. Meanwhile, Liam's been feeling broody since Louis had baby son Freddie recently. It's not out of the question."
So it sounds like babies may not be too far away in their future - can you IMAGINE how cute Chiam's kids would be?!
