Fans convinced Cheryl and Liam have named their baby 'Taylor Payne'
Cheryl , 33, and Liam Payne , 23, have kept their private life quiet following the birth of their son, but fans are convinced they have figured out the little fellow's name
They welcomed their first child in March. And whilst Cheryl, 33, and Liam Payne, 23, have kept their private life quiet following the birth of their son- sharing just one snap, fans are convinced they have figured out the little fellow’s name.
Eager followers have discovered a new listing of a ‘Taylor Payne’, on Famousbirthdays.com.
The entry lists a birthday of March 22nd 2017, the same date as that of the couple’s son. Claiming the child is the 'Son of singers Liam Payne from One Direction and Cheryl from Girls Aloud’, it names the birth place as Chelsea and Westminster hospital.
But despite the site’s conviction, the notoriously private couple are unlikely to have released this information. Taking to Twitter one fan excitedly wrote: 'The child was named Taylor’, while another added: ’ Even if the baby’s name is Taylor wait until she or Liam announce it!’.
MailOnline has contacted the couple’s representatives for comment.
The discovery comes after the couple previously mentioned Taylor as one of their favourite baby names. 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 walks alongside Liam and shows off bump before birth of son.
The interviews resurfaced following the pair’s happy announcement in March, when they shared the first picture of their little one. Cheryl welcomed her first child London’s Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, with her partner, One Direction singer Liam Payne, at her side.
She announced the news on Instagram 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!'
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.
