Liam Payne has described himself as the ‘happiest I could be’, as he prepares to welcome his first child with girlfriend Cheryl.

Cheryl and Liam still haven't announced publicly that they are expecting their first child together, but earlier this month the former ‘X Factor’ judge was pictured in London with a visible baby bump, basically confirming the rumours.

Earlier on Liam had shared a photo from the living room of the home he shares with Cheryl. The room was suitably decorated for the festive season, with a Santa statue in the corner and holly around the fire place.

But during the fan Q&A Liam dodged all questions related to Cheryl’s pregnancy. One fan asked: ‘'@liampayne are you excited to be a dad? btw congratulations #askliam’.

While another queried: ’@cherylofficial is pregnant? #askliam @liampayne'. Neither one generated a response from the One Direction star.

However when the singer was asked: ‘who's you woman crush?’, he coyly replied: ‘we all know the answer to that’.
