1chezPregnant Cheryl has made no secret of her desire to have children, previously admitting she’s ‘obsessed’ with babies. The singer also said she believed being a mother was the reason she was put on the earth.  The singer made the revelation in an interview two years after she split from her husband Ashley Cole.

In the intimate chat, Cheryl gushed: “I love kids, I’m obsessed with babies. I know that’s what I was put on the Earth to do – to be a mother.”  Former Girls Aloud star Cheryl confirmed she was expecting her first baby with One Direction star Liam Payne to “close family and friends” on November 29.

It seems she may already have a good idea of what she’d like to call her first born too as, in the interview with GQ, she admitted she’d had a favourite name for years.  The 33-year said: “Of course I’ve thought about baby names a million times. I like Alfie for a little boy.”
