Congratulations are definitely in order for Liam Payne, who is officially a dad! Payne and longtime girlfriend, Cheryl Cole, have welcomed their first child together and we’re so happy for them.

What’s not to love about a baby? The answer is everything is to love, just everything.

While we’re still not over the fact that the former One Direction singer is no longer a boy bander, this is great news.

The happy couple are officially parents and the photo they’ve shared is too cute.

On Saturday, the new parents confirmed that they have welcomed a new member into their family. Their first child, a baby boy, was born on Wednesday, March 22nd and he’s precious.

The sweet father-son moment shows Payne holding his new baby boy. If you didn’t love the British singer before, prepare to swoon now.

Yes, the newest member of the One Direction fan club was born just days before the UK’s Mother’s Day.

Isn’t that so cute?

The beautiful new mother also shared the same photo and a sweet caption of her own.

The overjoyed parents first announced they were expecting in February, after People confirmed the news in early November.

Payne is the second member of One Direction to become a father. His former bandmate Louis Tomlinson became a dad in January 2016.

Now all we need is a playdate between Tomlinson and Payne’s sons and we’d be set.

Either way, we want to wish the new parents the best of luck with their bundle of joy!
