London [UK], Dec. 1 (ANI): Cheryl Cole, who is rumoured to be pregnant with boyfriend Liam Payne's first child, reportedly thanked well-wishers who offered their congratulations for her 'pregnancy' as she stepped out with him recently.

The couple was spotted together attending Quintessentially Foundation's 'St James's Fayre' event with the 33-year-old singer, who is yet to publicly respond to the speculation, showing off an apparent bump in a tight knitted dress, reports the Mirror.

An onlooker told The Sun, "Cheryl said thank you when she was congratulated on the pregnancy and kept her hand proudly on her bump for most of the night."

"She looked absolutely glowing and was clearly delighted. Liam was ultra-protective. At one point he had to get her a chair to sit down on as she was so exhausted from being on her feet," the source added.

While the former ' Girls Aloud' singer's family has been told about the news, she has "no plans" to announce it publicly.

"Cheryl has told close friends and family the very exciting news that she is expecting her first child," said an insider. (ANI)
