Olly Murs and Kimberly Walsh may have just confirmed that Cheryl and Liam Payne are expecting their first child.

Speaking on the red carpet at the Pride of Britain Awards, the former X Factor host, who once toured with One Direction, admitted that Cheryl and Liam will announce their happy news when they “feel confident”.

“Honestly listen, it’s Cheryl and Liam’s business.. all the press are making speculation and rumours, but I’m sure when they feel confident and want to come out and tell everyone they will.

“It’s their own business and I’m sure they’ll be fantastic parents if they are, so I wish them all the best,” he told Mirror Celeb.

Meanwhile, Cheryl’s best friend and former bandmate Kimberly Walsh, who is expecting her second child, also appeared to confirm the happy news.

When asked about Cheryl’s pregnancy rumours, she said, “It’s not that I’m not allowed [to talk about it]. It’s just that she’s my best friend. I don’t want to talk about her … anyway.”

Then, when reporters told Kimberley to pass on their congratulations to Cheryl, Kimberly replied, “Thank you.”

The news comes after Cheryl finalised her divorce from French restaurateur Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini last month.
