Cheryl and Liam in Paris: the snap that now has EVERYONE talking

It's the rumour that refuses to go away: several sources have continued to declare that Cheryl Cole is currently expecting her first child with her boyband boyfriend of ten months, Liam Payne.

And stepping out in Paris over the weekend – her first public appearance in some time – the former X Factor judge certainly gave her fans plenty to talk about. 

Attending a L'Oreal event – a brand for which she is an ambassador – Cheryl looked beautiful wearing an all-black jump-suit with embellishment detail. 

Earlier, the 33-year-old singer had been keen to keep her stomach firmly hidden, opting for a series of heavy coats despite the 20C heat in the French capital. 

Although she is currently in the midst of divorcing her second husband Jean Bernard Fernandez Versini, Cheryl and Liam, 23, began seeing each other late last year.

By May they had gone public with their union – posting a cosy snap to Instagram. 

The couple has so far opted not to comment on the pregnancy rumours, but it is believed that they are now preparing to issue a statement later this week.
