Niall Horan gave us some insight into Liam Payne and Cheryl Cole’s exciting baby news!

Ever since we heard that One Direction’s Liam Payne and his GF Cheryl Cole are expecting a baby, we’ve been flipping out! Partly because there haven’t been many deets, and partly because their love story of meeting on X Factor is just so utterly divine.

Breaking the silence, Liam’s buddy and former bandmate Niall Horan teased Payne’s parenthood jitters to the Daily Star Online, and we’re feeling jittery with baby anticipation.

"Liam hasn't said he's nervous but I'm sure he is. I bet he can't wait as well. It is a very exciting thing in your life," Horan told the paper.

He went on to describe the happy couple in the most affectionate terms, adding that their child will follow suit,“He’s great and she’s lovely, it will be a lovely child. They are in love.” Horan admitted that he’s “looking forward to it [the baby]” as well, and we love the support.

As for us…we’re still just flipping out over these two!

We have no doubt that Payne is going to be the best and most attentive dad, because he seems like an all-round awesome guy.

Given Payne and Horan’s closeness as friends, we can be fairly certain that Horan will play a big role in the baby’s life.

And of course, Louis Tomlinson is already a dad, so he’ll probably be sharing some advice or handy hints from time to time.

Awwww everyone is growing up! It kinda makes us miss the good old One Direction days, but hey, we’ll always have their music to jam out to on those days when we’re feeling the nostalgia blues.

Sending all our best wishes to Liam and Cheryl as they move forward with their family! Bucketloads of LOVE.
