Pop star and former X Factor judge Cheryl has only just given birth to her first child-a son named Bear-but she is already plotting her return to music. The Geordie babe welcomed her first baby with boyfriend, One Direction star Liam Payne on March 22nd. The happy couple announced their exciting news via Instagram with a sweet snap of proud dad Liam gently cradling his newborn.
The cute snap was accompanied by a gushing caption from the proud new mam; “On Wednesday 22nd March Liam and I became parents to an incredibly beautiful, healthy baby boy, weighing 7lb 9 and looking like a dream. Although he still doesn’t have a name he is already stealing hearts. We are all madly in love and overwhelmingly happy with our little arrival. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers around the world. A day that now has a different meaning to me forever”.
But despite being a doting mother to baby Bear who turns two months old this month, Cheryl is already planning a major pop comeback in early 2018 according to the Daily Mirror.
The Mirror reports that a music insider has told them that Cheryl who last released an album back in 2014-the top ten hit ‘Only Human‘-has already had meeting with label bosses from Polydor. The source told the Mirror; “Cheryl met with her label to discuss ideas for songs and to plan a new sound. It went really well and she is going to be meeting with producers next month before she heads into the studio for some early sessions”.
News of Cheryl’s major music comeback comes six months after she formally cut ties with her management team Modest! At the moment the 33-year-old is not being looked after by any managerial company but that seems set to change in the coming months as the pop princess starts work on her fifth studio album.
But while fans will be excited to hear Cheryl’s new tunes they will have to wait until 2018, as the music insider said: “She [Cheryl] hopes to have some music out at the end of the year but realistically it will be early next year.”
We can also look forward to a new sound from the hitmaker who in 2014 became the first ever British female to score five number 1 singles on the UK charts, continuing to the Mirror, the insider confided that we can expect “a lot of choreography, like with her biggest hits ‘Fight For This Love‘ and ‘Call My Name‘.
