Major congratulations are in order for Liam Payne and his girlfriend Cheryl: they're officially parents!

Cheryl, 33, also shared the same photo of her boyfriend holding their baby boy and she announced that she gave birth to their son on Wednesday, March 22 and he weighed 7 pounds, 9 ounces.

Have Cheryl and Liam already chosen their baby's name? We are all madly in love and overwhelmingly happy with our little arrival.

It is thought Cheryl welcomed the baby boy into the world in the luxurious private Kensington Wing at London's Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, where new mothers and their partners are given all they need.

"Of course I've thought about baby names a million times", she said in an interview with GQ two years ago.

Liam said that he is in awe of how Cheryl handled the pregnancy and said that she has made his dreams come true.

Back in mid-March, Liam spoke to Rollacoaster magazine, where he said, "It's a very personal, precious time for [Cheryl and I]". This is the ideal Mother's Day for Cheryl. The newest addition to the family was born Wednesday, and the two announced the news via Instagram Saturday.

Cheryl was known as Cheryl Cole when she was in Girls Aloud.

Today just so happens to be Mother's Day in the United Kingdom, so Liam also shouted out the mamas out there when debuting the first pic of him cradling his newborn son.

"@ultra thank you so much!"

Cole and Payne originally met when he was 14 and auditioned for X Factor UK, a show he would later return to and kickstart his music career. She's been my dream girl since I was younger.

While Louis Tomlinson tweeted about a gig, but there was no mention of their bandmate's happy baby news.

"Total Congrats Cheryl on Having your Baby Boy I Hope you both Healthy + Happy Love u loads", another fan tweeted.
