We’ve been following their relationship since the early days, but apparently, not quite as close as some die- hard fans on the internet. The other day, Liam Payne sparked marriage rumors by calling Cheryl Cole his ‘wife,’ and  tons of people are convinced they’re secretly married.

It wouldn’t be THAT out of the blue, right?! They’ve been together for a while and share a gorgeous baby son. But still, absolutely nothing is confirmed. The slip of the tongue in question occurred during an interview with the French website On the Move:

Hold up, WIFE?

As it turns out, Liam calls Cheryl his wife for a perfectly legitimate reason. Saying ‘wife’ or ‘missus’ (as Payne has also said many times) is slang in the UK for ‘significant other.’

And suddenly it all makes sense.

Who knows what the future will hold, but Payne has said that he sees marriage as “more of a religious thing” and it’s not something he feels the need to rush into anytime soon. Also, Cole has been married twice before, so that might be a factor in their decision as well.

Needless to say, we adore the couple, married or not.

Now, in the meantime, how about you guys provide us with some pics of baby Bear? Maybe an entire online album? Just a thought. Please and thank you.
