It’s not looking good for the boys…

Liam Payne and girlfriend Cheryl Cole welcomed their first child last week, and fans have been wondering why his One Direction band mates have yet to acknowledge the happy news on social media.

Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson have both been on social media since Liam, 23, and 33-year-old Cheryl’s announcement on Saturday evening, and Harry Styles totally stole their thunder by announcing his highly anticipated debut solo single just minutes later.

In contrast, all of Cheryl’s former Girls Aloud band mates have congratulated her – even Nadine Coyle, following their publicised feud.

But the boys could’ve sent messages to Liam in private, right? True, however we had a check of who Harry and Niall, both 23, are following on Instagram and it appears they’ve REMOVED Liam from their feeds!

Louis, 25, is still following the new dad, but the other boys have given the strongest hint yet of 1D in fighting.

As Liam and former X Factor judge Cheryl were being flooded with well wishes after their sweet announcement, Harry appeared in a short television ad during a commercial break on BBC One’s The Voice.

The clip confirmed his first offering away from the band is dropping on April 7, but even some Directioners hit out at Harry for ruining Liam’s news.

Last month Liam collected their BRIT Award for Best British Video alone – despite the fact all four boys were in London.

Now even bumped into Niall at one of the after parties…

Harry cast doubt on the future of One Direction last year when he was asked if they would end their hiatus. ‘I don’t know,’ he responded. ‘I would never say we’ll never do anything again but it’s good for us to be exploring different things.’

We can’t cope with the idea of never seeing the boys together again…
