Beaming Cheryl debuts baby bump in official maternity photo

British pop star Cheryl has posed with her baby bump in what is expected to be her last official photo before she becomes a mom.

The star, who is expecting One Direction toyboy Liam Payne's baby in days, posed for a new L'Oreal campaign in a skin-tight black dress last month (Jan17) in what seems to be her only official maternity shot.

The photo was released on Wednesday (22Feb17) as her boyfriend attended the BRIT Awards solo to collect One Direction's British Artist Video trophy.

Neither Liam nor Cheryl have commented on the baby news publicly, since the pregnancy rumors began late last year (16).

But it's clear she's not trying to hide the baby news any longer, cupping her belly in the L'Oreal shot, which is part of a Prince’s Trust initiative focused on confidence.

Cheryl, who has her own charity linked to the Prince’s Trust called Cheryl’s Trust, recently announced plans to open a charity center for disadvantaged youths in her native Newcastle, England.

Cheryl and Liam have been dating for over a year after she split from now-ex-husband Jean Bernard Fernandez-Versini in 2015.
