Liam Payne, 22, and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, 33, Add to Their “Family”


Liam Payne, 22, is getting serious with older, still-married girlfriend Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, 33.

The pair now have a brand new addition to their “family” — a teeny, tiny dog.

Cheryl used the first Instagram photo of her puppy to flirt with her One Direction beau, writing, “Our new family member, he is beyond cute… The dog is adorable too.”

The U.K. X Factor judge then showed her genuine appreciation for the pup, writing to Instagram dog celebrity Abbie Sisson, “@Toosmallforteacups thank you.”  

English native Abbie — who reportedly spends thousands on her poches — seems quite happy the dog went to the “wonderful home” of “lovely people” Cheryl and Liam.

Deciding to raise a dog together is a big step for the couple, especially since they only started dating earlier this year.

Things reportedly started heating up between the Brit celebs in December 2015. By Valentine’s Day, they were Instagram official and the boy band star had a tribute tattoo to his new lady love.

Although Cheryl is still in the midst of divorcing her husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini, rumors began circulating this spring she and Liam were even living together.

2015 might have been the year of the breakup, but 2016 is all about the Swiftly moving relationship.
