After remaining rather quiet until the end, the cat is officially out of the bag and Liam Payne is a father. He and girlfriend Cheryl Cole announced the arrival of a healthy baby boy, name still to come. Taking to Instagram with the very first glimpse into fatherhood, Liam gushes over his new bundle of joy. “My close friends and family know there are very few times when I’m left speechless…wow!” he writes. “I’m incredibly happy to welcome our new baby boy into the world, it’s a moment that I will never forget for the rest of my life and my favorite memory I have so far.”
“I’m completely in awe of his incredible mother and how she has been the whole way through this, she’s really made my dreams come true,” he adds. “We haven’t named him yet but he’s already capturing hearts including mine.”
Cheryl also shared the good news with her own Instagram post. “On Wednesday March 22 Liam and I became parents to an incredibly beautiful, healthy baby boy,” she writes. “We are all madly in love and overwhelmingly happy with our little arrival.”
