The 23-year-old dad-to-be bares his upper body as he graces the cover of a U.K. magazine while opening up about his pregnant girlfriend, 'She's been my dream girl since I was younger.'
Liam Payne goes shirtless for U.K. magazine Rollacoaster. The One Direction member bares his upper body as he graces the cover of the lifestyle magazine. He proudly shares on his Instagram account the cover pic in which he strikes a ready-to-fight pose with "No Payne, No Gain" written across it.
In the latest issue of the magazine (via The Sun), Liam opens up about his love for Cheryl Cole, who is pregnant with their first child. The 23-year-old dad-to-be says that his pregnant girlfriend has been his "dream girl" since he's a teen.
"This is the thing. In a non-cliche way, it's weird waking up every day and literally living out your dream. You wake up in the most beautiful places," he begins, before gushing, "Obviously I have the most beautiful girlfriend in the world and she's absolutely amazing. She's been my dream girl since I was younger. She's so ace."
In the interview with the magazine, Liam also talks about his appreciation of Cheryl's experience in the music industry. "She is a wonderful, wonderful person and it's amazing to have someone who can relate to so much of things - someone who's taken greater steps than me," he says.
"Her solo career was amazing," he continues. "She's been in the industry for 14 years now." He adds, "She fully supports me. We're super happy. It's a very personal, precious time for us. I'm still learning. I'm only 23."
Liam and Cheryl first met when he auditioned on the "The X Factor" back in 2008. They met again when he returned as a solo artist and she was a judge of the show in 2010, during when he formed One Direction with Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Zayn Malik. Liam and Cheryl went public with their relationship in early 2016.
