On Wednesday 22nd March Liam and I became parents to an incredibly beautiful, healthy baby boy, weighing 7lb 9 [3.5kilos] and looking like a dream,” she captioned the pic.

“Although he still doesn’t have a name he is already stealing hearts. We are all madly in love and overwhelmingly happy with our little arrival.”

Cheryl paid tribute to their little one on U.K. Mother’sDay on Sunday, adding: “Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers around the world. A day that now has a different meaning to me forever.”

‘I’m Left Speechless’

The One Direction star also took to Instagram to gush about their newborn, sharing the same picture as Cheryl.

“My close friends and family know there are very few times when I’m left speechless… wow!” he wrote.

“I’m incredibly happy to welcome our new baby boy into the world, it’s a moment that I will never forget for the rest of my life and my favourite memory I have so far.

“I’m completely in awe of his incredible mother and how she has been the whole way through this, she’s really made my dreams come true. We haven’t named him yet but he’s already capturing hearts including mine. I feel very blessed. Happy Mother’s Day everyone!”
