Payne did not make any mention of the new baby on his Twitter account, where he was busy gloating that One Direction won video of the year at the 2017 Brit Awards, beating out former member Zayn.

 

Cole, 33, and Payne, 23, met in 2008 when Payne auditioned for “The X Factor U.K.” They made their big reveal through a publicity photo of Cole clutching her baby bump. Cole took the photo as part of a campaign for L’Oreal Paris and The Prince’s Trust; the picture debuted on the cover of the Daily Mirror.

Cole, an “The X Factor U.K.” judge and former member of Girls Aloud, and One Direction member Payne have been dating since February of 2016. Rumors of the pregnancy started in December, when Cole appeared to have a small baby bump at the St. James Christmas Carol Concert in London.

Though Cole and Payne have kept mum, Payne’s bandmate Niall Horan accidentally spilled the beans about the pregnancy to the Daily Star in January, saying, “Liam hasn’t said he’s nervous but I’m sure he is. I bet he can’t wait, as well. It is a very exciting thing in your life,” and “He’s great and she’s lovely, it will be a lovely child.”

One Direction (commonly abbreviated as 1D) are an English-Irish pop boy band based in London, composed of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and previously, Zayn Malik until his departure from the band on 25 March 2015.

The group signed with Simon Cowell’s record label Syco Records after forming and finishing third in the seventh series of the British televised singing competition The X Factor in 2010.

Propelled to international success by social media, One Direction’s four albums, Up All Night (2011), Take Me Home (2012), Midnight Memories (2013) and Four (2014) topped charts in most major markets, and generated hit singles including “What Makes You Beautiful”, “Live While We’re Young”, and “Story of My Life”.

Their fifth studio album, Made in the A.M., was released in November 2015.
