British pop royalty Liam Panye and Cheryl Cole have revealed their first official collaboration, a baby boy, born on Wednesday March 22 at London‘s Chelsea and Westminster Hospital

The former One Direction singer has since become Instagram‘s most doting new parent, sharing the news with his followers earlier today along with a straight-up adorable photo of him with his son. 

“My close friends and family know there are very few times when I’m left speechless … wow!” he said.

“I’m incredibly happy to welcome our new baby boy into the world, it’s a moment that I will never forget for the rest of my life and my favourite memory I have so far.” 

“I’m completely in awe of his incredible mother and how she has been the whole way through this, she’s really made my dreams come true. We haven’t named him yet but he’s already capturing hearts including mine. I feel very blessed.”

Sharing the same picture on her own account, Cole wrote:

“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.”

In case you’re still unconvinced as to Liam and Cheryl’s current mood level, a ‘source’ close to the couple said that they are both “ecstatic” to be parents, so there you have it. 

‘Grats, you guys.
