Liam Payne and Cheryl Cole are officially parents! Payne himself announced the news on Saturday, revealing Cole gave birth to a baby boy.

On Instagram, alongside a photo of himself holding his newborn (see below), Payne wrote, “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.”

He went on, “I’m completely in awe of his incredible mother and how she has been the whole way through this, she’s really made my dreams come true. We haven’t named him yet but he’s already capturing hearts including mine. I feel very blessed.” And, with the U.K. currently celebrating a rather timely holiday, the new dad added, “Happy Mother’s Day everyone!”

As Gossip Cop reported, the couple, who first met when Payne auditioned for “The X Factor UK” in 2008, stepped out in November to attend theSt James Christmas Carol concert in London, with Cole sporting what appeared to be a growing baby bump. While neither of their reps confirmed the rumors at the time, talk of Cole’s pregnancy garnered an immense social media reaction, mostly from devoted One Direction fans. “Liam and Cheryl’s baby is going to be the most beautiful baby ever, they both look like angels,” one user wrote.

In December, Gossip Cop busted the repeatedly discredited HollywoodLife for falsely alleging Payne’s One Direction bandmate Niall Horan revealed the baby’s sex when he was spotted leaving a boutique store in West Hollywood carrying gifts for a girl. Unsurprisingly, the report was completely wrong, as Horan was actually buying a present for the newborn daughter of producer Ben Winston, a friend of the singer’s who also produced many of One Direction’s videos.

More recently, in early February, Gossip Cop exclusively debunked speculation that Cole had given birth. As we correctly reported, she had not, and in fact, Cole only confirmed her pregnancy a few weeks later. And just earlier this month, Payne spoke about Cole in Rollacoaster magazine, giving his first public comments on their relationship.

Now Gossip Cop would like to congratulate Payne and Cole on the birth of their first child. We wish the family many years of happiness, health and love together!

UPDATE: Along with the same photo, Cole wrote on Instagram, “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.”
