She's got a ring on her finger AND short hair - is Cheryl ready to be a mummy?

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has opted for the chop and snipped off her gorgeous long locks.

Eeesh! That’s a brave move Chezza, but it’s certainly paid off because your new hair looks blimmin’ incredible!

The stunning singer took to Instagram on Monday evening to debut her hot new cropped haircut alongside the caption:

‘I ❤ the 70’s #newdo colour is @lorealparisuk Casting Creme Gloss Berry Red 565. @percyhair thanks for the chop.’

She also uploaded a sultry snap of herself on Tuesday morning with the words:

‘Morning people .. Getting to grips with my new “do”‘

Hmm, it must be a huge shock to go from bouncy long tresses to super-short hair!

Before she went for the chop, Cheryl teased her Instagram followers by posting a photo of some scissors and a comb.

Next to it she wrote: ‘Long over due…’

She kept us on our toes, that’s for sure!

We can’t help but wonder whether 31-year-old Cheryl has had her hair lopped off in preparation for motherhood? After all, the former Girls Aloud star DID tie the knot last summer to Jean Bernard Fernadez-Versini so surely it’s only a matter of time till we hear the tiny pitter-patter of baby feet?

After marrying JB in July 2014, Cheryl revealed that kids weren’t in her immediate plans, adding that she might ‘possibly’ have them in the future.

‘Because I went through a real phase, just recently, of like, maybe it’s not for me. Because you just assume it’s a natural part of your life,’ said Cheryl. ‘If it happens, don’t get us wrong, it happens. But who knows? We’ll see. It’s not in me plans.’

Oh Cheryl, don’t wait too long! HOW gorgeous will Cheryl and JB‘s future kids be? Only like, the most beautiful bubbas EVER.
