A new report suggests Cheryl might actually be seven months pregnant
As the guessing game continues around Cheryl's "baby bump" - one publication thinks they've cracked the case.
Cheryl, who is sporting a much healthier look in comparison to this time last year, has been keeping a low profile in recent months while the rumour mill is in overdrive that she's expecting her first child with One Direction singer Liam Payne.
Heat magazine reports that the Promise This singer could be seven months pregnant and crediting a timeline of her activity in recent months.
In June, she was sporting an oversized, unflattering grey dress with minimal makeup to Liam's sister's wedding, which was initially thought to avoid being a distraction from the bride, but eagle eyed fans suggest she was covering up a bump early on.
In September, she featured in an ad for L'Oreal sporting a fuller face, prompting speculation she's pregnant.
She has strategically covered her stomach during any appearance in recent months and wore a figure hugging jumpsuit on Sunday night at an event in Paris, showing off her curves.

Cheryl has never been shy about her desire to have children, having previously said: "I know what I was put on this Earth to do - be a mother."
Neither she nor her superstar boyfriend have commented on the reports, but rumours have been swirling for months that they were keen to start a family with Payne's 1D bandmate Louis Tomlinson reportedly sharing parenting advice.
In June, The Sun reported the power couple were planning for a baby.
“It's very serious now between Cheryl and Liam and they have been talking among close friends about starting a family,” an insider said.
“She's content and while they're in the honeymoon period, this feels like a connection for the future.”
“Cheryl and Liam are getting more serious by the day."
Cheryl is still legally married to estranged husband Jean Bernard Fernandez Versini, who is said to be stalling divorce proceedings as he refuses to sign a non-disclosure agreement meaning "he can never defend himself or clarify any false reports", according to the Daily Mail.
