1cheryX Factor choreographer extraordinaire Brian Friedman has seemingly confirmed Cheryl Cole’s pregnancy with Liam Payne, saying that he’s happy for them.

The creative director of the hit ITV talent show told new! magazine it’s “fantastic” that Cheryl, 33, and her 23-year-old partner have found each other.

“Everyone wants to be in love, everyone wants to be happy. And now they’re having a baby together, so they definitely found something great,” he gushed. “It’s funny to think back how long ago it was that they first met. There’s something ironic in that they both came up into the industry in the same way, so they have an immediate connection.”
