The bookies have some names on the cards

In talks of pregnancy rumours, there are really only two names on the lips of the public: Cheryl and Liam Payne.

After months of whispers and strategically taken pictures, Cheryl returned to the red carpet last weekend, displaying a fuller face and what many are slating to be a baby bump!

And now, there have been bets – if she truly does have a Payne bun in the oven – on what they’ll name their little one.

Bookmakers have already suspended bets relating to Cheryl announcing a pregnancy by the end of the year, with an official statement from William Hill claiming the pictures from Paris to be ‘self-explanatory’:

‘William Hill are not prepared to accept bets on whether Cheryl & Liam are expecting their first child as they believe that the pictures from Paris Fashion Week are self-explanatory.’

Ooh la la! But now speculation has gone far enough that the same bookies have released a list of potential baby names!

So, what are the names?! we hear you ask…

For a boy, Alfie and Harry are the names taking the lead…

…and if they end up having a next generation Girls Aloud member, the most likely names are: Alice, Joan, Olivia, Harper and Nadine.

Harry? Nadine? With both being the names of people in their respective bands, it’d be an odd, but sweet homage to the past if Chiam opted for those!

Of course, there are no confirmations yet, and both Liam and Cheryl have kept pretty schtum about their relationship and family plans for the past couple of months.

But with such excitiement over Cheryl’s recent pics, surely it’s only a matter of time before they put us out of our misery and tell us, either way?
