With radio silence from Cheryl and Liam (save for a few gag-worthy Twitter posts) it's come down to the public to figure out whether Cheryl is indeed pregnant with her first child.
And when there's only so much squinting you can do at the Crazy Stupid Love singer's midriff, it's always helpful when someone close to Cheryl weighs in and implies that we are all, indeed, onto something.
Suggesting we're not barking up the wrong tree, Cheryl's best friend and former band mate, Kimberley Walsh, recently revealed that Cheryl is indeed in a good place right now.
And while Kimberley, who is currently expecting her second child, tried to rein in her remarks, she didn't do much to persuade the public that the couple won't be hearing the pitter-patter of tiny feet very soon.
With Cheryl once having said she was born to be a mother, 34-year-old Kimberly remarked that she's delighted for her friend during an interview with the Daily Star's Life magazine, saying: "Yes, I'm really happy that she's happy."
"I don't really want to go in to too much detail on that because I feel it's something that she should speak about, but to know she's happy makes me happy," she added.
This isn't the first time Kimberley's been asked about Cheryl's life with Liam Payne, having said earlier this month that she'd rather not comment on speculation.
"She’s one of my best friends and I would never speak about any friends’ personal lives. I just try and leave them to it," she admitted.
So, what is it that Kimberley thinks Cheryl should speak about?!
