One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson may now be the dad to a tiny baby boy, while former 1D-er Zayn Malik is livin’ it up with bae Gigi Hadid, but now it’s Liam Payne who has the big news. The 23-year-old and his GF, 33-year-old singer Cheryl Cole, have just let the world in on the fact that they’re expecting a baby, and fans are FREAKING OUT!

Though there was no official announcement, the sitch was more than obvious when the pair stepped out to attend The Fayre of St James’s Church in London last night. While Liam looked sizzling hot in all black, all eyes were on Cheryl, who slayed a form-fitting green dress and slick black coat along with thigh-high boots.

But it was her belly that everyone was talking about. A very noticeable (and totally adorable) baby bump was on display with Cheryl in no way trying to hide it. In fact, the pair looked perfectly happy as they walked together through the press and snapping cameras.

And some fans are just as thrilled…

Though some were shocked by the entire sitch…

While others, well…
