The Voice coach has some interesting things to say...

Remember when Will.i.am and Cheryl became besties after Chezza popped up in his 2007 track Heartbreaker? Oh the nostalgia…

Well it turns out that, even though they don’t work together anymore, Will is still very fond of Cheryl and has got some cute things to say about her rumoured pregnancy.

The Voice star, 41, says he’s over the moon that Chezza, 33, and boyfriend Liam Payne are seemingly about to become parents, having seen Cheryl previously experience some not-so-happy times in her love life.

Are Cheryl and Liam Payne taking this BIG relationship step?

‘Cheryl is awesome and I am so happy for her,’ says Will. ‘She is always in and out of bad relationships.’

Yikes, poor Cheryl! Will has a point though – during his friendship with Chezza she went through a divorce from first husband Ashley Cole after he’d been unfaithful to her.

She was then rumoured to have briefly dated Dancing With The Stars pro Derek Hough, followed by a short-lived romance with dancer Tre Holloway.

In more recent times the Girls Aloud star ended up getting divorced for a second time last year when her whirlwind marriage to Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini went awry.

Now though she seems very content with One Direction star Liam, 23, and Will’s excited to see her in such a good place.

‘She is expecting a baby but it could be a beer belly, right?’ he jokes to Closer magazine. ‘But if it’s not beer and it’s the real thing, that’s good for her.

‘I haven’t really met Liam but I am so happy for her, she deserves it.’

Awww. In the meantime Cheryl and Liam are maintaining their silence about the baby talk and neither of them have posted anything on social media since sharing Christmas and New Year messages.

It’s even led to speculation that the couple might have already secretly become parents, with one fan recently commenting: ‘Is Cheryl just hoping she’ll give birth and nobody will notice?’

Meanwhile others have wondered if they might be engaged. Blimey, what a start to 2017 THAT would be for Chiam!
