Liam Payne and former X Factor judge Cheryl have kept a low profile on social media… until now.

Liam, who has been busy shooting his latest music video and jet-setting between the UK and US, took time out to share an adorable selfie of him and partner Cheryl – and be warned, it’s cute.

Looking more loved up than ever, the smitten couple have had a whirlwind past few months after welcoming their first child, Bear, back in March.

According to The Sun, the pic comes amid claims that Cheryl was getting a visa to ensure she can travel to America more regularly – where Liam frequently records new music.

Taking to Instagram the former One Direction singer shared the rare snap of them snuggled up together with his 14 million followers.

The 23-year-old can be seen wrapping his tattooed arms around the barely made-up and glowing new mum. Letting his smile do the talking for him, Liam scattered the caption box with a number of happy emojis, including praying hand and a star: ‘⭐️🙌🏼🙏🏼’

Fan’s crazy response…

And, with over 502k likes and over 13k comments the couples’ fans went wild for the pic, which provided them with a much-valued insight into the couples’ world.

“Awh you are so cute together,” one commented, while another replied with: “Amazing, you guys are goals”.

A third referred to the new parents as a “match made in heaven”, and it’s easy to see why, especially when Cheryl posts images like this one back in July.

Date night 😏

Cheryl, 34, and Liam have reportedly been dating since the beginning of 2016 and welcomed Bear at a little over a year into their relationship.

The couple have been fiercely protective of their little man, with only two images out in the public eye.

Shortly after his arrival, an insider told The Mirror: “They’ve always been a very private couple. And they want their son to remain private as well. They don’t want him to be in the spotlight at all.

“They want him to grow up away from the cameras.”
