Liam Payne has put his foot in it again, after telling an onlooker that he and girlfriend Cheryl Tweedy are NOT planning baby number two.
“No, that’s not true. It’s not happening,” said Liam, 24, as he arrived at Berlin airport on Saturday.
The couple, who share son Bear, who turned one last month, have been the subject of split rumours for months, and have just returned from a ‘make-or-break’ holiday in the Maldives.
The pair had kept their location secret but were spotted by a fan on their flight home – said to be the same flight as Philip Schofield and his family, who had also enjoyed their Easter in the exotic location.
One beady-eyed fan revealed their whereabouts on Twitter, writing, “You just sat in front of me on the plane. What a beautiful child you have.”
An insider also told The Sun newspaper, “The Maldives is a location close to Cheryl and Liam’s heart. It’s very private and secluded. They wanted a proper break from everything, and that’s exactly what they got.”
The couple had visited the Maldives two years previously and it’s thought that the romantic location is where they first fell in love.
This time they were accompanied by baby Bear, and the family are thought to have stayed in a very luxurious, £2000-a-night, waterfront villa.
Asked whether he enjoyed the break, Liam replied, “It was good thank you” and added that his family were “great man, can’t complain.”
Cheryl, 34, and Liam’s holiday comes after their Brits Awards appearance in February sparked speculation that the couple were about to split.
Although they came across as very close after Cheryl’s flirty comment about her ‘safe’ word for Liam, it later emerged that the couple were having a difficult time.
In an interview, Liam revealed, “Like, you know, we have our struggles. Of course I’m not going to sit there and say everything is fine and dandy, because of course you go through different things, and that’s what a relationship is.
This part of our relationship was not never going to happen. There was always going to be a little bit of tenseness in the way we sort ourselves out.”
Notoriously private Cheryl was said to be furious with Liam’s admission and was clearly keen to try and save their relationship away from the public eye – and away from anyone Liam could talk to!
Cheryl was also forced to stick up for her man when he was pictured looking cosy with one of his backing dancers over the Easter weekend.
The Fight For This Love singer wrote on Twitter, “I can’t ignore this story involving an innocent dancer colleague of Liam’s and dragging them into this desperate attempt to try and cause problems between Liam and I.
Now, off on our holiday. And the only thing we are making is memories, and breaking is our healthy eating toodles.”
