Liam Payne is probably the happiest man on earth right now. I mean, if your girlfriend is Cheryl Cole and you’re going to welcome your first child with her, I think anyone would be happy. He opened up about his relationship with the singer in an interview with the Rollacoaster magazine.
“This is the thing. In a non-cliché way, it’s weird waking up every day and literally living out your dream,” Payne said as he gushed over his romance with the former member of Girls Aloud singer, 33. “You wake up in the most beautiful places. Obviously I have the most beautiful girlfriend in the whole world and she’s absolutely amazing.”
The couple are set to welcome their first baby any day now. They met in 2008 when Liam was 14-year-old and Payne had auditioned or The X Factor and Cole was a judge on the UK singing competition. She was then married to English footballer Ashley Cole at the time and then she got married to restauranteur Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini. After she left him last year, Cole begin to date Payne.
“She’s been my dream girl since I was younger. She’s so ace,” Payne confessed to the magazine. “She is a wonderful, wonderful person and it’s so amazing to have someone who can relate to so much of things, someone who’s taken greater steps than me. Her solo career was amazing. She’s been in the industry for 14 years now. She fully supports me.”
Even though the pop star hasn’t really acknowledged the coming of his baby with the veteran singer, but he said, “We’re super happy. It’s a very personal, precious time for us. I’m still learning. I’m only 23.”
After maybe what is months of speculation, Cole finally confirmed that she’s pregnant through a photoshoot for the L’Oreal and The Prince’s Trust, which was published on the cover of the Daily Mirror on the 23rd of February. In the picture, she cradled her baby bump in a long-sleeve black dress.
