Why won’t Ch­eryl talk about her preg­nancy?

She might be dis­play­ing a huge bump, but Ch­eryl’s still keep­ing mum. So what’s the big deal?

Look (UK) - - COVER STORY -

Look­ing glam, Ch­eryl was beam­ing as she was helped out of the car by boyfriend of a year Liam Payne as they at­tended the Quintessen­tially Foun­da­tion fair of St James Christ­mas Carol Con­cert in Lon­don last week.

But as pho­tog­ra­phers de­scended on her, it was the ‘bump’ high­lighted by her tight Alexan­der Wang jumper dress that’s caused us all to ask: why isn’t Ch­eryl com­ment­ing on the preg­nancy ru­mours?

Spec­u­la­tion about any im­pend­ing ar­rival has been rife since the 33-yearold spent the sum­mer in ‘hid­ing’ fol­low­ing sev­eral loved-up shots of her and Liam on In­sta­gram.

But it was her ap­pear­ance at a L’oréal Paris event in Septem­ber, where she seemed to be dis­play­ing a curvier stom­ach, that seemed to con­firm things, as well as her ap­pear­ance last month on The One Show – but still she’s stayed quiet.

Sources have told Look that we shouldn’t ex­pect an an­nounce­ment any time soon. ‘She’s do­ing re­ally well,’ says our in­sider. ‘But Ch­eryl’s a pri­vate per­son, so why would she com­ment?’

That’s de­spite par­ty­go­ers re­veal­ing Ch­eryl was ac­cept­ing thanks from those con­grat­u­lat­ing her at last week’s party. And it hasn’t stopped her friends. For­mer X Fac­tor col­league Brian Friedman ap­peared to con­firm the news. ‘If they’re happy, it’s fan­tas­tic,’ said Brian. ‘Now they’re hav­ing a baby to­gether, so they found some­thing great.’ Of course, it’s not un­com­mon for stars to refuse to com­ment on their preg­nan­cies. A-list ac­tress Blake Lively didn’t re­veal her first preg­nancy un­til she was five months along, while this month Pink an­nounced her sec­ond preg­nancy with an In­sta­gram photo of her bump – sur­pris­ing ev­ery­one as she’s about five months along. ‘Ch­eryl’s happy. There’s no need for her to re­spond,’ adds our in­sider. We’ll just have to wait…
