Liam Payne has fuelled rumours that his girlfriend Cheryl has given birth to their first child. Taking to his Twitter page on Thursday, the One Direction star shared a cryptic message with his followers. "Why do I always do the strangest walk when I'm trying to be quiet in a morning," he teased. The post immediately sent Twitter into meltdown with fans suggesting the singer has dropped the biggest hint yet. "Were you trying not to wake baby?" asked one follower, while another remarked: "Who are you trying not to wake up? That's the real question."

VIDEO: Cheryl shows off her gorgeous baby bump

The tweet comes a week after Cheryl finally confirmed her pregnancy. The former X Factor judge, 33, proudly showed off her baby bump in a new campaign photo and video for L'Oreal and The Prince's Trust. The campaign saw Cheryl cradling her blossoming bump as she spoke about self-worth for the new confidence campaign. It's not known exactly when the images were taken, but the baby's arrival does seem imminent. A source told the Metro: "Cheryl is getting very excited to meet her baby. Her due date was mid to late March but she knows there is a two week window on either side, so her baby could be here literally any day now."
