They offered the world a glimpse at their newborn on Saturday as they announced the joyous news of the birth. But Cheryl, 33, and Liam Payne, 23, will not be sharing any pictures of their son’s face as their main priority is their child’s privacy.

 A friend of the couple exclusively told MailOnline: ‘Cheryl and Liam decided they won’t be sharing any pictures as they want to protect the privacy of the baby.’

Revealing that the couple will not be taking part in any magazine deals, they continued: 'They had been offered huge deals from the UK and US but they turned it down as the baby’s privacy is the most important thing to them.' 

The news comes after the proud new parents shared a picture of their little one with fans on Saturday. Cheryl welcomed her first child London’s Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, with her partner, Liam, at her side.

She announced the news on Instagram on Saturday as she shared a picture of Liam cradling their little one, captioned: 'On Wednesday 22nd March Liam and I became parents to an incredibly beautiful, healthy baby boy, weighing 7lb 9 and looking like a dream.Although he still doesn’t have a name he is already stealing hearts. We are all madly in love and overwhelmingly happy with our little arrival. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers around the world. A day that now has a different meaning to me forever.’

Liam shared the same picture as he wrote: 'My close friends and family know there are very few times when I’m left speechless…wow! 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 favourite 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. We haven’t named him yet but he’s already capturing hearts including mine. I feel very blessed. Happy Mother’s Day everyone!’  

Whilst the couple have not yet settled on a name for their baby boy, Alfie has proven to be one of the front-runners.

 Speaking about her desire to become a mother in 2012, Cheryl admitted that she loved the moniker and had already picked it out for if she ever had a son.  Speaking two years after her split from first husband Ashley Cole in 2012, Cheryl told GQ magazine: 'I love kids, I’m obsessed with babies. I know that’s what I was put on the earth to do – to be a mother.’

Cheryl added at the time that she already had a name picked out for a baby boy, telling the magazine: 'Of course I’ve thought about baby names a million times. I like Alfie for a little boy.’

Liam also revealed he’d picked out baby names, telling Hits Radio during his One Direction days: 'I like the name Taylor. Taylor’s pretty neutral for a boy or a girl. That’s what I’m going to call my first child if I had children.’ Liam even went on to hint that he might be ready to have multiple children as he quipped that being with his bandmates 24/7 had given him plenty of practice in playing dad, joking: 'It’s like having four of them!’

Cheryl kept fans guessing for months before confirming her pregnancy in the most public way – at a L'Oreal photoshoot, in which she posed in a close-fitting black dress and cradled her bump. Friends said at the time that she had kept the pregnancy a secret because she didn’t want to 'jinx her happiness’ after years of bad luck in relationships. 

The singer was married to England footballer Ashley Cole from July 2006 to September 2010. She married Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini in July 2014, and the pair divorced in October 2016. 

Cheryl became a household name when she joined girl band Girls Aloud, who were put together by talent show, Popstars: The Rivals in 2002. 

Liam first laid eyes on Cheryl in 2008 when he auditioned for the X Factor but failed to make it through to the live shows.Two years later at the age of 16, he appeared on the series again and joined forces with fellow solo singers to create One Direction, but it wasn’t until February 2016 that they decided to embark on a romance.

During Liam’s time on the show, Cheryl was married to her now ex-husband Ashley Cole. She went on to remarry with Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini in 2014, and announced their separation earlier this year. 

Stars? h2ovanoss

If everyday were like today Evan would’ve killed himself a while ago. To top of the excessive amount of worrying he has done over his college finals, it was cold and damp, which was his least favorite type of weather. Even though he cringed when he stepped out his front door  he decided to take a late night depression walk, and as if his heart was guiding him towards salvation, he ended up at Jon’s house.  Although right now his best friend was laying down on his old porch roof instead of hanging out with him inside. He watched Jon peacefully look up at the stars as he effortlessly stunning, but he was on his old porch roof. Which spiked his anxiety because damn that thing was built so long ago and probably wouldn’t hold his weight for much longer.

“How is that thing holding you? ” Evan asked while he shoved his then cold hands in his hoodie pockets.

“I don’t-” Jon adjusted his position to look at Evan “Hm, I don’t know but I hope it falls; I have to go to work tomorrow and I’d rather end it all then do that shit” he said flatly while he turned his eyes back to the night sky. He thought about how easy it would be to just be another lost life in the sea of death humanity has created, but the thought of Evan suffering just because of him, made him constantly push that thought back and keep on moving. Everything he’s accomplished by doing this was and is, for Evan.

“Trust me I get it, but I’m not letting you die tonight,” he shifts his weight “Wanna join my depression walk?” he asked looking up at Jon worriedly.  He knew how Jon felt about life, and it constantly plagued his mind that one day he could wake up and Jon could be gone.  Everytime he saw him thinking too much he would sleep over or take him to sleep over at his, because he would never have Jon die because he didn’t.

“Is this to end depression or is it because you’re depression?”

“Yes I am the human embodiment of depression, come with me former college student and let’s think about all your debt.”  

“Fuck you I’ll be down in a second, bitch.”

He watches Jon stand up and crawl back through his bedroom window and about two minutes later he’s at his front door to walk with Evan.  Evan got tired of standing about twenty seconds in, so he stood up when he heard Jon’s front door open behind him.

“Sorry it took so long,” he jumped the from his door to the porch. “I had to leave a note for my Mom so she won’t call the cops when she sees I’m not in my room.”

“Yeah, you’re in that room so much you don’t need the rest of the damn house.” Evan stated then turned back to walk with Jon.

“Nah,” he briefly turns to look at his porch roof then back up to the sky. “I like star seening.”

As he turned back and walked to where Evan waited on the sidewalk, he saw a weird look on Evan’s face, and for a brief second he could see the stars he was just looking at in his eyes. Every goddamn time he looked in Evans eyes he saw how he viewed the world, and how he saw all these good things that Jon never saw. The pure bliss that came with looking him in the eyes drew him in and made him forget everything that was drawing him towards his demons. Jon almost doesn’t hear Evan when he continued to press him about how he speaks.

"I really need to find you an English class,” he said while turning to start walking down the sidewalk.

“For your information,” Jon grabbed Evan’s arm and turned him to face him while he bitterly makes this point. “I’ve had English classes all my life, it’s just that I’ve never listened.” But at this point Evan was only trying to make himself taller ‘cause fuck he feels so tiny compared to this giant bitch.

“Yeah I could tell you illiterate fuck,” he said after he puffed out his chest to compensate for being looked down at.

“Now who isn’t speaking well now huh?” Jon said amused cause Evan looked like a stuffed bear trying to be intimidating.

“What are you even talking about,” Evan sighed and looked at the ground, giving up trying to be threatening.

“I-I don’t fucking know,” he muttered, and smiled down at the now defeated tiny man.

Jon looked up then took a deep breath and pushed it out of his chest quickly.

“Come on, where to?” he said while turning Evan back around and pushing him away from his house.

“I don’t know, I was just walking and I subconsciously walked to your house.”

“So now I know that if you were sleepwalking you would end up at my front door,” he huffed out a laugh. “Comforting.”

Evan laughed and glanced at Jon who was adjusting his thin-rimmed silver glasses. “If that were to happen what would you do?”

“Eh probably take you in and dump ice water on you,” he joked.

He fake gasped and shoved Jon off the sidewalk. “Straight cruel dude,” he said with amusement in his tone.  

“You know I wouldn’t do that to you.”

“Yeah,” he hummed happily. “I know,” he said smiling .

They ended up at the Sunset Beach Pier, and as they walked to the end of the old wooden thing, it reminded Evan of Jon’s old porch roof he was previously laying on.

When they reached the end of the pier and leaned on the wooden railing he finally turned to Jon and asked when he started looking at the stars.

Jon looked out at the ocean taking in the sight before him. “Not long before you moved here actually,” he cleared his throat. “So around six/seven years ago. It started because I needed a quiet place to calm down after studying, and the entire house just felt lonely, since it was just my Mom and I at the time. So I went out and looked at the stars and I didn’t feel it anymore,” he laughed lightly then turned and looked Evan dead in the eye, “But you know something funny?“

Evan lightly shook his head trying to keep listening and not get lost in the most capturing eyes, that were looking dead at him.  

“A couple days before you moved in I saw a shooting star, and I wished for someone.” he looks down fidgeting with his fingers, “Just someone to be with and distract me, not that my was was horrible enough to need a distraction, but I didn’t have no one. I just find it weird how you moved in a couple days later.”

There was a long pause before Jon cleared his throat to speak again, although this time his heart was beating like he’d just ran a mile. He knew what was happening next and there was only two ways it could play out, but he just thought fuck it and spoke.

“I never told you there’s an alternative way to get better, it helps me more than star seening,” he said in a wavering tone, anxiety getting a better grip on his head now that he was actually doing this.

“What is it,” Evan asked noting how nervous Jon had suddenly become.

“Well there are two places to find stars besides my porch,” his eyes darting left and right still looking at the water in front of them.

“That’s imposs-,” he started to say but Jon’s anxiety had gotten the best of him and just made him blurt out his thought.

“I like the stars in your eyes better anyways,” he said as he pushed himself off the railing and turned and walked back down the pier,  while shoving his hands in his pockets. Hunched over he walked as quickly as he could to get away from the situation he had just caused.
