We’ve known about this for a while and have been obviously DYING for deets, and now, finally, notoriously private Cheryl Cole has officially announced her pregnancy with a gorgeous low-key photoshoot for L’Oreal and The Prince’s Trust.

Dressed in all-black, she glowed with happy anticipation while cradling her baby bump.

Not to sound TOO gushy, but the love between Cheryl and One Direction’s Liam Payne continues to make us melt; remember how they met when Liam was auditioning as a solo artist on The X Factor? Then he went and got all famous and everything, and now they’re just the sweetest couple who send impossibly cute joint Christmas cards. But back to the photo shoot.

Look closely. There she is fourth from the right.

We LOVE how Cheryl chose this platform for a maternity photo shoot, because it promotes the “All Worth It” confidence training program which is designed to empower young people. She’s about to become a mom for the first time, but her agenda is still about how best to inspire others.

And this goes without saying, but we are ridiculously excited for Cheryl and Liam’s baby to be born! We know Liam is going to be a great dad…because he’s Liam!

Wishing the happy couple all the best as they continue to prepare for parenthood, and um, feel free to do more photo shoots!
