The former X Factor judge (33), who is rumoured to be expecting her first child, has been dating the One Direction singer (23) for nearly a year and her divorce from ex-husband Jean Bernard Fernandez Versini was finalised after a drawn out legal battle in October.

In a new interview with Fabulous magazine, the star admitted that having overcome "difficult stages" in her life has made her stronger.

"I am happier than I’ve ever been before. Now is a very good time in my life" she said.

"I learned to be less apologetic and not to give a s*** about what people say. I think you just focus on what is right for you and you learn to trust your own instincts and follow them."

"I’ve been through difficult stages and you never know what’s going to hit you in life. You just don’t have a clue. But I’d tell myself, 'You will get through things.' You do. You just get through it and you keep going."

In her divorce forms, Cheryl said the cause of the breakdown was the French restaurateur's "unreasonable behaviour".

The singer said his behaviour had affected her health and added: "It caused stress and weight loss."
