New behind-the-scenes pictures of Cheryl show the singer's growing baby bump, although she's yet to publicly confirm her pregnancy.
In the images, Cheryl (33) can be seen being attended to by an assistant at a photoshoot as her blooming baby bump takes centre stage.
The former Girls Aloud star is seen wearing a fitted black dress in the pictures, posted as an Instagram story by hair stylist Wendy Iles.
Cheryl is yet to publicly announce that she is pregnant with boyfriend Liam Payne's baby, despite stepping out with a baby bump on several occasions.
Cheryl and One Direction singer Liam (23) first met in 2008 when he auditioned for the X Factor panel, on which she was a judge, and have been in a relationship since December 2015.
Liam was 14 years old at the time, while Cheryl was married to footballer Ashley Cole until 2010.
In an 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."
