Liam Payne declared his affections for girlfriend Cheryl Fernandez-Versini on Instagram Tuesday. Check out the photo below!

Payne shared a picture of Fernandez-Versini looking sweetly at the camera, and wrote in the caption, “Happy #internationalwomensday to my favourite woman in the world. Hope I make you as happy as u make me X.” In just one hour, the post racked up more than 220,000 likes and nearly 43,000 comments.

It also made “Liam and Cheryl” become a trending topic on Twitter in the United States. The post marks Payne’s most direct confirmation yet of their relationship, which only went public last month despite starting in December. Among fans, there’s still mixed opinions on the romance.

“U gotta be kidding me,” wrote one Instagram commenter, while another rudely stated, “SHES LIKE 90.” Someone else jokingly teased Payne, “WAIT! I’m Your favourite woman in the world!! :p.” Another individual simply said, “This is soooo cute.”

Exactly a week ago, Gossip Cop exclusively debunked reports that falsely speculated Payne and Fernandez-Versini had split. We confirmed they were very much still together, and the One Direction member’s adoring Instagram post proves we were right. It also comes just after Gossip Cop called out a purported “interview” with Payne’s ex Sophia Smith.

The British tabloid Now claimed to have scored a sit-down with Smith about her former beau’s new girlfriend. But as Gossip Cop pointed out, the reporter actually crashed a meal she was having at a London restaurant, and her sister made clear afterward that she didn’t actually do an “interview.” No matter, seems Payne has another woman on his mind anyway.
