London [UK], Oct. 30 (ANI): One Direction star Liam Payne recently released a sneak preview on social media of his first single fuelling speculations that girlfriend Cheryl Fernandez-Versini is carrying his "baby".

As noted by the Mirror, the words on the 23-year-old singer's not-yet-named song is one of the strongest hints so far that the former 'X Factor' judge is expecting a child.

One particular line from the lyrics says, "All the best things take a little time, take a little time baby. This ain't nothing, take a little time, baby."

The former 'Girl's Aloud' singer had been keeping hush, unwilling to reveal whether or not she is pregnant with her first child.

But her recent appearance in London sent the rumour mill into overdrive as she was seen wearing a black baggy jumper concealing what looked like a baby bump.

One pal said, "Even if she were pregnant, she'd love to keep it quiet right the way through, if at all possible."

"After the X Factor she's enjoying taking a slight back seat - she's not been using social media very much and hasn't been turning up at showbiz events all over the place. A slightly quieter life is a nice change for her and she's really enjoying it," the source added. (ANI)
