The mum-to-be has everyone very excited

After months of heavy speculation, it looks as though the end of Cheryl Cole’s much-discussed pregnancy could be upon us!

Speculation is rife that the former Girls Aloud star is giving birth to boyfriend Liam Payne‘s baby – or, that she’s given birth already, as fans suggest that her pregnancy announcement was a deflection tactic!

Photographers were spotted gathering outside a top tier London hospital late last week, with people reaching the natural conclusion: BABY CHIAM IS A-COMING!

However, this came little more than 24 hours after Cheryl finally confirmed her pregnancy by showing off her bump in a new campaign shot for the Prince’s Trust, which showed her standing side-on and holding her prominent bump tenderly…

It’s clear to see that she’s got that maternal glow! However, some clever fans have wondered whether her choice to reveal her bump so close to her rumoured March ‘due date’ is because she has ALREADY had her bubba, but is trying to distract the public with a glam picture… what a thought!

Cheryl – who is joined in the photo by several well-known faces including Louisa Johnson, Helen Mirren and Katie Piper – still hasn’t verbally confirmed whether she’s expecting but has spoken of her joy at being involved in this campaign.

Having kept a low profile on social media of late, she took to Twitter on Thursday morning to share the news – though made no reference to her GIANT bump.

It’s nice to see Cheryl publicly sharing her happiness with the world. Though she’s kept her public appearances to a minimum since the middle of 2016, the rare times we have been given an insight into her world has displayed a growing bump – although it looks as though her bump days could be over now…

With paparazzi and Cheryl fans keeping close watch, we’re sure that we’ll all be put out of our misery soon with some exciting news… Start placing your boy/girl and quirky celebrity baby name bets now!

Meanwhile, boyfriend Liam faced a backlash after his solo outing to the Brits on Wednesday night, where the 23-year-old shocked fans when he took to the stage alone to collect 1D’s gong for British Artist Video Of The Year. But fans slammed him for not being at home with his baby-mama-to-be.

We’re sure he’s at Cheryl’s side right now. Push, Chezza, push!
