After months and months of speculation about whether or not Cheryl is expecting, well we still have more speculation. But this time maybe there is a little bit more confirmation. Attending a recent Charity event in London, Cheryl stepped out looking very chic and stylish wearing a figure hugging khaki dress and an open black coat with her hair of course styled to perfection. However, it wasn’t the outfit that was the talk of the night and the days that follow. It was the neat round bump under the dress, which looked like an unmistakable baby bump.

With both Cheryl and Liam yet to confirm or deny, the loved-up couple seemed happy to be out and waving to fans and press, Cheryl certainly seemed like she had nothing to hide.

Fuelling the rumour mill

The pair who announced they were a couple earlier this year have faced months of baby rumours -most recently when Cheryl appeared on the One Show to raise awareness of the importance of Childline and some of the work in which they do. Chery,l of course. was there to promote the Charity and the fact that she has now become the face of Childline, but much of the speculation after the show was whether or not Cheryl was indeed hiding a baby bump.

Questions surrounding the subject were clearly avoided, as until anything is officially confirmed it can be an awkward situation to be in and simply "is she or isn't she" remains.

(Of course soon becoming yesterday's news, the show also more recently had Jennifer Aniston on the sofa revealing what the cast of `Friends` weren't a fan of.)

Baby speculation is not new

However, the baby speculation has followed Cheryl around for a number of years. More so, with Cheryl's close friend and fellow band mate Kimberley Walsh pregnant with her second child (Kimberley is already Mum to adorable 2 year old son, Bobby Scott) making Cheryl broody.

But with a turbulent and short marriage to Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini, it has been Liam that has been her knight in shining armour. As the couple seem to be keeping “mum” about the pregnancy rumours it’s simply a case of watch this bump! Let’s just hope we’re not all making Cheryl feel bad for having that extra slice of cake – we’ve all been there!
