Liam Payne & Cheryl Cole Welcome First Child

And even though the holiday isn't officially until May, Payne ended his post by writing, "Happy Mother's Day everyone!"

Once again, congratulations to Liam, Cheryl and all of their family and friends on the wonderful news! "We haven't named him yet but he's already capturing hearts including mine", he continued. "Happy Mother's Day everyone!" he added.

Cheryl was previously married to footballer Ashley Cole from 2006 to 2010, parting ways amid allegations he cheated on her. In February, Cheryl confirmed the news of her pregnancy via a photo published on the Daily Mirror.

Liam previously said he will "never forget" the arrival of his baby son, following the news that Cheryl has given birth.

"She is a wonderful, wonderful person and it's fantastic to have someone who can relate to so much of things - someone who's taken greater steps than me". I feel very blessed.

Payne went on to be placed in pop group One Direction, created by boss Simon Cowell throughout the series, who quickly achieved global fame.

She described herself and Payne as "madly in love and overwhelmingly happy with our little arrival".

In May, Payne gushed over Cole who he called the "most lovely girlfriend in the world" while at an event organized by "Desperate Housewives" star Eva Longoria.

Cheryl felt the same way. I felt I knew her already.

Yes, I said HE because our Chezza has only gonna and given birth to a baby boy. "She has such a big heart and a very special soul".

Kimberley had previously said that Cheryl would be a "brilliant mum".

Surprisingly, former bandmate Nadine Coyle was the first of the girls to congratulate Cheryl on the Girls Aloud front - despite their rumoured feud. Liam also received messages from Juicy J and Zedd.
