The stars' representatives have only fuelled the baby rumours by failing to comment on the reports.

British singer Cheryl has given the clearest sign yet she is expecting boyfriend Liam Payne's baby after stepping out in a figure-hugging gown, clearly displaying her bulging belly.

The former Girls Aloud star went public with her relationship with Liam in December, 2015, following her split from second husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini.

Their relationship has gone from strength to strength ever since, and at the end of the summer (16), rumours first surfaced suggesting Cheryl was pregnant with the couple's first child.

Representatives for the 33-year-old and the One Direction singer, 23, have only fuelled the claims by remaining silent about the speculation, while Cheryl has gone out of her way to hide her growing figure in recent weeks, often stepping out in big coats and loose-fitting clothing.

However, it appears the couple is no longer able to hide its happy news and on Tuesday (29Nov16), Cheryl embraced her swollen belly by wearing a form-fitting sweater dress and leaving her long coat open, giving the paparazzi a clear look at her fuller figure as she and Liam attended the St. James Christmas Carol Concert in London.

In the photos from their night out, the stars are featured walking with their heads down, although they can clearly be seen smiling as they make their way from their car to the festive show.

The news emerges almost two months after Cheryl finalised her divorce from French restaurateur Jean-Bernard in October (16). They had married in July, 2014 after a whirlwind romance, but parted ways in August, 2015.

She was also previously wed to British soccer star Ashley Cole from 2006 to 2010.
