Cheryl is unrecognisable in filtered birthday selfie, her first shared with fans since giving birth to Bear
Cheryl Tweedy has been keeping a very low profile since giving birth to her son Bear three months ago.
However, she took time out on her 34th birthday to share a selfie with her 3.5m followers on Instagram.
The former X Factor judge, who is dating Bear's dad Liam Payne, opted for a heavily filtered photo complete with bunny nose and ears.
"Thank you sooo much for all my lovely birthday wishes," she wrote, adding, "You always make me feel so special."
She shared the selfie hours after her former Girls Aloud band mates Nicola Roberts and Kimberley Walsh wished her a happy birthday with some flashback photos.
Roberts joked Cheryl would "hate this" when she posted a photo on Instagram showing herself and Kimberley next to Cheryl enjoying a night out and pulling faces at the camera.
Roberts wrote: "Another Happy Birthday and fbf post. She's going to hate this pic but it captures perfectly that cheeky mood she gets in when she's happy and enjoyed a cocktail. The one where I have to watch her like a hawk!
"It's only right for a Birthday post. Sisters from other misters. Love you Bel. Happy Birthday @cherylofficial."

Walsh posted her own set of images on her social media page, a collage of old pictures of the three of them together, while their fellow Girls Aloud bandmates – Nadine Coyle and Sarah Harding – were left out.
Walsh wrote: "Little pic montage for the birthday girl @cherylofficial Happy Birthday!
"So many happy memories. (Heart) you loads! #birthdaygirl #memories #friends #3amigos #bottomrightismyfav."
