Liam Payne and Cheryl Fernandez are apparently in a relationship. The two are rumored to be secretly dating for the past three months.
Liam seems to confirm the rumors after posting a picture of them together, reports Daily Mail. The black and white selfie shows a shirtless Liam and Cheryl with her signature V-sign across her face. He made the picture his Instagram profile picture and also changed his profile bio to “Happy”.
The picture came just days after The Mirror reported that the two were spotted together in Tesco. New footage from The X Factor finale in December also shows the lovebirds kissing each other.
After their performance, Liam went to hug Cheryl. The hitmaker who is a decade older than the 1D singer is seen reaching out to him who then holds her waist and plants a kiss on her cheek.
The new romance comes just months after it was revealed that Cheryl is divorcing Jean-Bernard. According to a report by The Mirror, the new couple also jetted off to a private Caribbean resort in early February.
The insider said: “With Liam it’s just completely relaxed. They’ve come from the same place and totally understand each other and the pressures each of them has, so there is no need to put on a front.
“Of course they have known each other for a long time, and always got on very well, but it was only in December that they began talking of getting together.
“It’s early days and who knows exactly what will happen, but her family are happy for her and she’s enjoying herself.”
A friend of the pair told The Sun that the two indeed are in a relationship. “It was unexpected but they’ve both made each other very happy,” revealed the source.
The friend also revealed that their relationship developed very quickly in December after the X Factor finale.
