As the pair en­joy new parenthood, some fans are blam­ing Ch­eryl for the One Di­rec­tion di­vide…

We’re made up for Ch­eryl and Liam Payne, who be­came first-time par­ents on 22 March. Since then, many fa­mous friends have taken to so­cial me­dia to con­grat­u­late Chiam on their as yet name­less new ar­rival, with Ch­eryl’s Girls Aloud band­mates among them.

But we can’t say the same for 1D. De­spite be­ing on­line, Harry Styles, Niall Ho­ran and Louis Tom­lin­son are yet to pub­licly send their best wishes to band­mate Liam, 23. And the fans have no­ticed, with Twit­ter com­ments like: ‘It’s Ch­eryl’s fault,’ sur­fac­ing.

‘Liam wants to be a re­ally hands-on dad,’ says our source. ‘But the back­lash has hurt and made him ques­tion why his band­mates haven’t been more sup­port­ive.’

It may have more to do with clash­ing sched­ules. As the news of Ch­eryl and Liam’s ar­rival hit the press, 23-year-old Harry was also mak­ing head­lines, an­nounc­ing the up­com­ing re­lease of his de­but solo sin­gle Sign Of The Times. In re­sponse, Liam tweeted this cryptic mes­sage: ‘Proud of you H. Glad you’re get­ting to do your own thing.’ Not ex­actly con­grats, is it? And some Twit­ter users have pointed out that when Harry was asked about be­ing god­fa­ther, he said: ‘I think it’s a roll of the dice. If it came my way I’d be hon­oured.’ But Liam has yet to re­spond. ‘Liam can’t help but think the fans are pun­ish­ing him for giv­ing all his time and at­ten­tion to Ch­eryl and their new son,’ says our source. ‘The way he sees it, Harry has more time to meet up with his old band­mates be­cause he doesn’t have the same com­mit­ments.’

It’s said to be why some fans blame Liam’s girl­friend of a year, Ch­eryl. ‘There’s a lot of re­sent­ment among the fans, who are sug­gest­ing that Liam’s forgotten about the rest of the lads since he’s been with Ch­eryl,’ adds our source. ‘But they’re both just so loved-up and try­ing to en­joy their time to­gether as new par­ents. Ch­eryl’s in­sist­ing that she won’t let any­one bring them down.’
