Ch­eryl’s big Move…

Has Ch­eryl re­ally turned her back on her first love? The star seems to be hint­ing at it

Look (UK) - - CONTENTS -

Can you be­lieve it’s been seven long years since Ch­eryl re­leased her first solo sin­gle Fight For This Love in 2009? A lot’s changed since then. Not only has she had nine hit singles, the 33-year-old’s been di­vorced twice – most re­cently end­ing her mar­riage to Jean Bernard Fernandez-versini in court af­ter a long-run­ning bat­tle. Now she’s loved-up with 1D’s Liam Payne, who she’s ap­par­ently set to marry next year, while the pair are yet to con­firm any ‘preg­nancy’ de­spite the re­cent spec­u­la­tion.

And in­sid­ers have told Look that now she’s feel­ing more set­tled in her life, Ch­eryl’s about to make a huge U-turn in her ca­reer, mov­ing away from mu­sic. Nooo! The for­mer singer is keen to seek to carve out a more whole­some im­age for her­self, cit­ing Victoria Beck­ham as an in­spi­ra­tion.

‘Ch­eryl knows she’s reach­ing a re­ally im­por­tant cross­roads in her life and ca­reer,’ says our source. ‘She wants the year ahead to be full of new chal­lenges and she wants fam­ily at the fore­front.’

Liam’s al­ready be­lieved to have pro­posed to Ch­eryl and her di­vorce will be fully fi­nalised in a few weeks, so she can start plan­ning for their fu­ture. The pair have been house­hunt­ing in LA as Liam also plans to spend more time record­ing there.

‘I know that if she does be­come a mum, she wants to be there 24/7 and en­joy ev­ery sec­ond of the baby’s first year – and that would mean se­ri­ously re­think­ing the di­rec­tion her ca­reer is tak­ing,’ adds a pal.

It’s some­thing her for­mer Girls Aloud band­mate Kim­ber­ley Walsh has had a lot of suc­cess with. Cur­rently preg­nant with her sec­ond child, Kim an­nounced last week that she’s launch­ing her own kids’ cloth­ing col­lec­tion, Kimba Kids, and has also been the face of sev­eral par­ent­ing projects.

‘Ch­eryl’s seen what her friends have done and views it as a chance to re­launch her­self,’ says our source. ‘She has an op­por­tu­nity to be­come one of the top women in the spot­light and could be blog­ging, writ­ing books and even mak­ing TV shows about fam­ily life with Liam. She wants to make her whole world about her fam­ily.’
