After being in the centre of rumours for a long time, singer Cheryl Cole, who now calls herself just Cheryl, flaunted her baby bump with One Direction star Liam Payne.

The 33-year-old singer is rumoured to be expecting her first child with boyfriend Payne. And on November 29, Cheryl fuelled speculations about her pregnancy while attending a nativity-themed Carol concert.

Arriving at the Quintessentially Foundation fair of St. James Christmas Carol Concert in London, the star displayed a prominent baby bump beneath her figure-hugging jersey dress that highlighted her midriff. 

The couple has remained tight-lipped even as rumours of them expecting their first child together have been rife.  Now that the Girls Aloud singer seems to be openly flaunting her baby bump, fans are going absolutely crazy about it on social media. Check out some of the epic reactions of the fans below:

Payne first met Cheryl while auditioning for the X-Factor before his One Direction days. Cheryl was a judge then on the show and Payne was only 14 years old. Later the band One Direction was formed and they performed before Cheryl on the reality show in 2010. They won the X-Factor that year and found global fame with One Direction.

This will be the first child for the couple although they have not made any official announcement yet. The X-Factor judge was previously married to soccer player Ashley Cole and restaurateur Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini, whom she recently divorced.
