It’s been all but common knowledge for months but Cheryl has now confirmed she’s pregnant for the first time while helping to launch a new charity youth campaign.
The 33-year-old singer has previously refused to comment on whether she and Liam Payne were expecting a child, but there’s no refusing it now with the release of an image which shows her cradling a noticeable bump.
The Prince’s Trust and L’Oreal Paris are launching a three-year project aimed at helping raise the confidence of 10,000 young people across the UK struggling with self-doubt. Stars and famous names including Dame Helen Mirren and Katie Piper are also featured in the photo for a new programme called All Worth It.
The individuals in the photo are Gary Thompson, Chez Rust, Kaushal, Louisa Johnson, Helen Mirren, Jordan Bone, Emily Canham, Amena Khan, Marcus Butler, Neelam Gill, Cheryl, AJ Odudu, Katie Piper, Victoria Magrath and Jada Sezer
The Prince’s Trust says it launched the campaign after a study it carried out suggested that one in three young people don’t believe in themselves.
In a statement regarding the project, Cheryl said:
“Young people are currently facing more and more problems with self-confidence and we have to address these issues as a real priority. My hope is that this partnership will help young people feel accepted and valued for who they are and make sure that they get the support they need to make the most out of life.”
The confidence training programme will form part of The Prince’s Trust’s existing courses running in 18 of its centres every three months. Learning materials will also be available online for young people in need.
