X Factor's Judges Houses descended into pandemonium at the sound of loud gunfire when they waited for Cheryl's imminent arrival.
Security guards flocked to Simon Cowell's £10 million mansion in Nice, South of France, to discover the panic was caused by a farmer shooting rabbits in a field.
They previously shared an image of their 'new family member' on Cheryl's Instagram, but the baby talk was 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.
Rumours also surfaced that Liam had been looking to his former bandmate Louis Tomlinson for parenting advice, and a source told Hollywood Life, " Neither star has spoken out about any of 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. 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 moved in together and apparently talked about having a family.
According to heat Magazine, the couple pretty much moved in together early on, 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 home, where he's lived on his own since splitting with his ex, Sophia Smith, back in October 2015.I saw her the other night and she was on great form.She stays in contact on phone and text and she is good." Cheryl's long time friend Will.also added that Cheryl's happier when she's in a committed relationship, "Cheryl is the best, I love her a lot. 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.Can you just IMAGINE how cute Chiam's kid is going to be?!It looks like we need to give these guys a HUGE congratulations, right now.A day that now has a different meaning to me forever" On Wednesday 22nd March Liam and I became parents to an incredibly beautiful, healthy baby boy, weighing 7lb 9 and looking like a dream.
