Liam Payne With Cheryl Entire Time in $10,000 Maternity Suite
UPDATE (3/26/2017 at 11:22 a.m. ET):
Liam Payne is a dream boyfriend.
In new details, the One Direction singer accompanied his girlfriend, Cheryl, the entire time she gave birth to their newborn son.
According to a source close to the couple, the popstar never left his beau's side and constantly checked in on her to make sure everything went smoothly.
"Liam didn't leave Cheryl's side throughout the birth, and like her, he is besotted with their new son and can't wait to take him home.
"This is the perfect Mother's Day for Cheryl," the source said. Mother's Day in the U.K. is on March 26.
Cheryl, whose mother also kept her company, gave birth in a luxurious private maternity wing at London's Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.
The wing, which cost more than £8,000 (or about $10,000) a night to stay in, was supplied with perks like Wi-Fi, private consultation rooms, a water birthing suite, three labor rooms and a nursery.
"The whole family are over the moon. Cheryl has taken to motherhood really well, she is loving spending every minute with her new baby boy.
"He is her little Prince Charming," the source said.
Original story (3/25/2017 at 5:48 p.m. ET):
Liam Payne and Cheryl are officially parents after welcoming a baby boy.
The pair confirmed on Saturday that their little bundle of joy made his debut on Wednesday, March 22, and they couldn't be any happier.
The One Direction singer took to his Instagram page on Saturday to share a picture of himself cradling the newborn baby; the first known photo of the possible future pop star.
"My close friends and family know there are very few times when I'm left speechless... wow!" the 23-year-old captioned the photo.
My close friends and family know there are very few times when I'm left speechless... wow! 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!
"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 favorite memory I have so far," Liam continued before gushing about Cheryl.
"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!" he concluded, referencing the U.K. holiday on March 26.
Cheryl, 33, also shared the picture, and revealed their son's date of birth. "On Wednesday March 22nd Liam and I became parents to an incredibly beautiful, healthy baby boy, weighing 7lb 9[oz] and looking like a dream," she wrote.
"Although he still doesn't have a name he is already stealing hearts," she continued, echoing her boyfriend's words. "We are all madly in love and overwhelmingly happy with our little arrival. Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers around the world. A day that now has a different meaning to me forever."
But don't expect to see the baby's face — or at least any time soon. According to a friend of the couple, Liam and Cheryl refuse to sell any pictures of the newborn.
"Cheryl and Liam decided they won't be sharing any pictures as they want to protect the privacy of the baby," the source told the Daily Mail.
While, of course, the famous couple have received offers, Cheryl and Liam seem adamant in their decision.
"They had been offered huge deals from the UK and US but they turned it down as the baby's privacy is the most important thing to them," the source said.
