Bookies have fuelled rumours that Cheryl could be expecting her first child, as they’ve now suspended betting on the pop star being pregnant.
The former X Factor judge had been rumoured to be expecting with boyfriend Liam Payne after appearing fuller-faced in a L’Oreal advert – but yesterday, Cheryl seemed to confirm the news herself.
Stepping out for an a-list L’Oreal event in Paris on Sunday night, Cheryl was snapped with what looked like a tiny baby bump hiding underneath her black jumpsuit.
Since the photos were released, bookmakers have confirmed that they will no longer be taking bets on the 33-year-old announcing any baby news this year.

Jessica Bridge from Ladbrokes told The Irish Sun, “The odds have been falling as quick as Cheryl’s ‘bump’ has been growing, and we’ve been left with no option but to suspend betting on the happy couple announcing they’re expecting a bundle of joy.”
Meanwhile, William Hill’s Joe Crilly said, “We no longer think it is a viable market to bet on as the pictures seem to suggest a baby is on the way.
Instead, bookies are encouraging people to bet on whether she’ll have TWINS.
“We are 33/1 that it is twins and they are 2/1 to get engaged this year.”
