by Ainhoa Barcelona

She's been keeping a low-profile in recent months, but on Wednesday Cheryl thrilled fans when she posted a gorgeous throwback photo on Instagram. The pregnant singer, who is expecting her first baby with boyfriend Liam Payne, shared an image taken seven years ago from the Brits. The Geordie beauty looked glam from head-to-toe, wearing a glittering, sheer gown. Ahead of Wednesday night's awards ceremony, she wrote: "Wishing all the Brit nominees and performers good luck for the show tonight. Looking forward to it. In the meantime here is my #tb #bts vogue shoot I did for the Brits 2010."

Cheryl's baby bump: all the photos!

Cheryl's stunning photo marked the second time she has posted on Instagram this year. She returned to the social media app last week after a hiatus, choosing to share some exciting news with her followers. While her personal life has been making headlines, Cheryl shifted the focus to her charity work, by announcing: "I am so happy and excited to tell you that after a 5 year relationship with @PrincesTrust and a 2 year mission along with Cheryl's Trust we have finally found a centre in the heart of Newcastle that will be opened this summer! Part of me is still pinching myself!"

Liam Payne was recently spotted returning to the UK

So far, both Cheryl and Liam have refused to comment on reports that they have welcomed their first child. But speculation reached an all-time high this week thanks to her former Girls Aloud bandmates Kimberley Walsh and Sarah Harding. Both stars posted Instagram tributes to the pregnant star, seemingly without explanation. Kimberley was first, sharing a snapshot of her and Cheryl together at the Brits five days ago. Then, on Tuesday – Valentine's Day – Sarah posted a photo montage of her and Cheryl together. "#Valentines #spesh #GA #saryl #kisses to the #missus… #tour banter #good #times," she wrote in the caption. Liam has also been spotted returning to the UK, prompting speculation that Cheryl's due date was approaching.
