Are Cheryl Cole and Liam Payne currently creating a love nest for their newborn child in the U.K., or are these mansion renovations simply another way for Liam to invest property while he hangs out with Drake?
Although there was a February 18 update on Liam Payne’s mansion renovations, the topic has been in the press since around January 28.
In fact, the February 18 update on mansion renovations attached to Cheryl Cole and Liam Payne are actually fairly run-of-the-mill for a celebrity except for the part where their rumored baby might be involved.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Liam Payne allegedly rushed back to the U.K. from Los Angeles to be with Cheryl around February 11. Although it was heavily reported that there were rumors about Cheryl and a possible baby, neither she nor Liam Payne have officially stated they are pregnant.
Nevertheless, around February 11, it was speculated by One Direction fans on social media that Liam Payne might be going back to the U.K. to be with Cheryl because she was going to give birth to their rumored child.
Regardless, a week later, it appears that this was not the case, but the press still maintains that Cheryl Cole may have been pregnant as early as May 2016 when she was photographed in France with Liam Payne for a Vogue 100 Gala.
When questioned afterwards about the possibility of being pregnant, a spokesperson for Liam Payne and Cheryl Cole stated that it was a personal matter and would not answer the question.
Despite the fact that the big news on February 12 was wrong when they stated Liam Payne flew from Los Angeles to London because of Cheryl giving birth, everyone is still convinced she is actually pregnant.
Other baby evidence that Liam Payne fans are waiting on is an advertising campaign starring Cheryl Cole that is due any day. The advertising campaign with L’Oreal was first announced around February 10, and Metro speculates it will display a pregnant Cheryl Cole.
While Cheryl Cole explained in 2016 that she was giving up her role as a TV judge on X-Factor to pursue a solo music career, she has likely given up temporarily on that dream to have a baby.
In the meantime, it is clear that Liam Payne is working hard on his solo music career outside of One Direction both in Los Angeles and London.
Birmingham Mail reports on February 17 that Liam Payne might have been rushing to the U.K. to see Drake — and not Cheryl. Drake is currently in London doing a series of concerts, and Liam Payne wasted no time posting a pic of himself with Drake on social media after seeing Drake’s February 15 show.
Naturally, when Liam Payne also captioned the picture with Drake stating he was “a genius,” One Direction fans immediately started to chatter on social media about the possibility that Liam Payne could soon be collaborating with Drake.
No collaboration hints have been released by Liam Payne or Drake yet, and it is assumed that Liam Payne will be returning to America in the near future to finish recording his first solo album.
According to a report from Mirror on February 4, Cheryl Cole is pushing Liam Payne to pursue his solo music as much as possible.
As far as baby rumors being true, One Direction fans feel left out in the dark. Interestingly, on February 2, it was revealed on Liam Payne’s personal Instagram account that he currently has a picture of a baby hanging up in the Los Angeles recording studio he regularly uses.
Is this a signal from Liam Payne to his One Direction fans about Cheryl being pregnant — or is the baby picture just an interesting piece of artwork? Only time will tell.
