The hilarious tweet read,

He also went on to say,

Thank you to everyone for the love and supportive messages for myself and @CherylOfficial❤ It really means a lot.

33-year old mom Cheryl, who first found fame in British girl band Girls Aloud, announced the healthy arrival of their son in an adorable Instagram post on Saturday of Liam cradling their baby boy.

On Wednesday 22nd March Liam and I became parents to an incredibly beautiful, healthy baby boy, weighing 7lb 9 and looking like a dream. Although he still doesn’t have a name he is already stealing hearts. We are all madly in love and overwhelmingly happy with our little arrival. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers around the world. A day that now has a different meaning to me forever.

Her beau Liam also shared the same image of him holding his newborn son, saying,

My close friends and family know there are very few times when I’m left speechless… wow! I’m incredibly happy to welcome our new baby boy into the world, it’s a moment that I will never forget for the rest of my life and my favourite memory I have so far.

The couple kept quiet about Cheryl’s pregnancy for the entire nine months.

Despite photographs of The X Factor judge’s growing baby bump emerging in the media, the singer never actually announced the news herself.

It’s been reported that Cheryl’s mom, Joan Callaghan, has moved into the couple’s swanky Surrey mansion to be hands-on help now the baby has arrived.
