The genetically blessed couple look the picture of happiness.

Cheryl Cole has finally debuted her much speculated baby bump, stepping out with boyfriend Liam Payne last night in London.

While it has been rumoured for months that the former Girls Aloud songstress is expecting her first child with the One Direction crooner, this is the first time that her baby bump has been undeniably visible.

The 33-year-old was all smiles as she attended a charity concert with 23-year-old Liam, wearing a tight sweater dress that clung to her bump.

This will be the couple’s first child together. They have been dating for a year.

Last month, Cheryl’s former band member Kimberley Walsh made headlines when she said Cheryl would be “a brilliant mum”.

Speaking to The Sunday People, Kimberley – who is expecting her second child with husband Justin Scott – revealed that Cheryl is “naturally good” with kids.

“She’s really happy right now. And she’ll be a brilliant mum. She has loads of nieces and nephews, so she’s used to the madness of children.

“Both she and Nicola [Roberts, also from Girls Aloud] are naturally good with kids,” she gushed.

In September Liam sent fans into a frenzy when he changed his Twitter bio to declare that he was “the luckiest man in the world”, amid continuing speculation over his relationship with The X Factor judge.

At the same time, his girlfriend Cheryl set tongues wagging when she stepped out at a party in Paris wearing a figure hugging jumpsuit that accentuated her belly.

Her former co-host and father of one Simon Cowell has also previously hinted that she would love kids of her own.

“Cheryl would be an amazing mum. I have seen her with my son Eric and other kids over the years and she is incredible,” he said.

“She is very good with them. I think she is in a good place in her life right now. I had dinner with her a couple of months ago with Liam and they were great.”

Cheryl and Liam, 23, were first linked together in February. They first met in 2008, when Liam was 14 years and old and Cheryl was 24, when he auditioned for The X Factor UK.

He would later return in 2010, where he was grouped with Zayn Malik, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan to form the boyband One Direction.
