Former Girls Aloud star Kimberly Walsh has said that bandmate Cheryl will be a "brilliant mum" and is "really happy."

Rumours that Cheryl is pregnant with her first child with One Direction singer Liam Payne have been circulating over the past several months due to the star keeping a low profile and sporting a much healthier look in recent public appearances.

While neither Cheryl nor Liam have denied or accepted the speculations, Kimberly revealed in an interview with the Sunday People earlier this year that the pop star will be a "brilliant mum."

"She's really happy right now. And she'll be a brilliant mum. She has loads of nieces and nephews, so she's used to the madness of children," she said.

Reports of a pregnancy for the couple intensified when Cheryl's mother was spotted buying baby goods in September, alongside Liam's Twitter profile update to "the happiest man in the world."

The famous couple stepped out on Sunday night with Cheryl wearing a loose-fitting knitted dress and oversized coat, while she exposed her midriff in a figure-hugging sparkly jumpsuit at the start of the month.

The former X Factor judge and heartthrob confirmed their relationship in February following Cheryl's divorce to second husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini.

They first met when Liam (23) was a contestant on the singing competition in 2008, while Cheryl (33) was on the judging panel.
