She kept mum about her pregnancy throughout and only confirmed she’d become a mother once her baby arrived with a post on social media.
And Cheryl hasn’t posted a thing on her Instagram since.
Until today, that is.
The singer has broken her silence to post a gushing message to her baby daddy, Liam Payne.
(Although, given she is keeping everything else so private, why she is communicating to him publicly we can’t work out…)
Anyway, she posted a brooding black and white picture of her beloved with a very sweet message.
“Happy 1st Father’s Day Liam… You are the most amazing daddy and the best example for our son.
“The way he looks at you says it all. Your relationship melts my heart.
“You are the centre of his world and we adore you.”
Told you it was sweet.
Of course, the pressure was on after Liam shared a loved-up message to her on US Mother’s Day last month.
He wrote on Instagram: Happy Mother’s Day America and two my two very special ladies, Mum and Cheryl. I love you both very much.”
Aww. These guys!
Cheryl and Liam became first-time parents to their baby boy on March 22.
Sadly for the world, the pop couple are remaining true to their word and not allowing us to have a glimpse of him!
