More than a month after welcoming their baby son, Cheryl and Liam Payne are yet to reveal the name of their little boy. But the couple's fans are convinced they have now uncovered the moniker. Eagle-eyed followers have discovered a new listing for 'Taylor Payne' on famousbirthdays.com, with the date of birth listed as 22 March – the same day as Cheryl and Liam's son. The famous pair are also listed as the parents, and fans have been excitedly sharing links to the page. "The child was named Taylor!" one wrote, while another reasoned: "Even if the baby's name is Taylor, wait until she or Liam announce it."

Fans are convinced they know the name of Liam and Cheryl's baby son

Taylor was considered a firm favourite for the couple after an old interview emerged in which Liam listed it as one of his top baby names. Back in 2012, he told Hits Radio: "I like the name Taylor. Taylor's pretty neutral for a boy or a girl. That's what I'm going to call my first child if I had children." In a separate interview that same year, Cheryl admitted she already had some baby names picked out. "I love kids, I'm obsessed with babies," she told GQ. "I know that's what I was put on the earth to do – to be a mother. Of course I've thought about baby names a million times. I like Alfie for a little boy."

Cheryl and Liam welcomed their baby boy on 22 March

Liam, 23, and Cheryl welcomed their son into the world five weeks ago. Cheryl, 33, has since stayed out of the public eye as she bonds with their baby boy at the couple's Surrey home, while Liam has been jetting between the UK and LA as he works on his debut solo album. He opened up about becoming a first-time father during a recent visit to the States, telling Pedro Ramirez: "He’s great, he's good. I love him and I miss him a lot." So far, Cheryl and Liam have shared just one photo of their baby boy. Alongside the official birth announcement, Cheryl uploaded a sweet snapshot of Liam cradling the new arrival – and it has since become her most popular Instagram post to date, receiving over one million likes from fans and well-wishers.
