[tps_footer]Just when you thought One Direction member Liam Payne was single and happy, there he drops a bomb. This time the singer has made it Instagram official. The 1D singer is off the market and is dating X-Factor Judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini. Liam Payne, who is 22, is dating a woman 10 years older to him.
Celebrating the International Women’s Day on March 8, 1D lad Liam Payne took to his Instagram account to wish the most special woman in his life by posting Cheryl’s picture. “Happy #internationalwomensday to my favourite woman in the world ?? hope I make you as happy as u make me X,” he wrote alongside a photo.
A source close to Cheryl recently confirmed that the two started dating last year but wanted to keep it private. The news got a bit confirmed when Liam changed his Instagram display picture with her and the social media got crazy over several speculations. The rumours got strong when Liam posted a picture of roses on Valentine’s Day with caption “Happy Valentine’s Day baby…”
Last week, Liam posted a selfie of them with just a smiling emoji.
Liam Payne first met Cheryl at the age of 14 when she was the judge of X Factor UK. He had come for the auditions but didn’t get selected. In 2010, Liam once again came for the audition and this time got selected while Cheryl was still on the judging panel.
In the past, Liam was dating Sophia Smith, on and off, for a long time whereas Cheryl is currently divorcing her husband Jean-Bernard Ferndandez. Well, looks like the duo are very much into each other and if there’s one direction for Liam is headed to and it leads straight to Cheryl.[/tps_footer]
