Cheryl isn’t due to give birth to her baby for another "several weeks" yet.
The 33-year-old singer sparked rumours she was preparing to welcome her little bundle of joy imminently after she and her boyfriend Liam Payne were spotted buying things in for tot’s nursery but friends are adamant she’s still got a long way to go.
A friend close to the star said: "The rumour mill has been rife that the birth is imminent and there have even been claims she’s in labour already but that’s not the case at all.
"She’s still a little way off and has been enjoying the build-up as well as focusing on her charity announcement which is a really big deal for her."
Eyebrows were raised on Thursday (16.02.17) when the brunette beauty took to her Twitter account for the first time since last year to announce she will open a new centre, which hopes to support disadvantaged young people, in Newcastle "this summer" as part of her charity Cheryl’s Trust collaboration with The Prince’s Trust.
An insider explained to The Sun newspaper: "It was important for her to continue working throughout her pregnancy, Cheryl’s Trust was her top priority."
Meanwhile, despite never actually confirming that she’s pregnant, Cheryl has been spotted on a number of occasions hiding a bourgeoning baby bump under her outfits.
However, it’s no doubt been a stressful time for the former Girls Aloud singer as not only has she been dealing with her own work schedule but her 23-year-old boyfriend has been working on his debut solo album across the pond in Los Angeles, California.
A source said recently: "Liam is doing what he can to make sure he spends as much time as possible with Cheryl before and after the birth, but some commitments can’t be changed. Luckily Cheryl has an incredibly supportive family, who will rally round if they are needed. They will also be helping her and Liam after the birth, as Cheryl is saying she doesn’t want to get a nanny."
