Could another One Direction member be joining the daddy club beside Louis Tomlinson?

Popstar Liam Payne caused a fresh wave of baby buzz after he updated his Twitter bio to say that he is “the luckiest man in the world.”

Is Liam set to join the daddy direction club?

The subtle change made by the 23-year-old immediately had fans speculating as to whether this could be a hint that his 33-year-old girlfriend might indeed be pregnant.

And while many were seconds away from throwing an impromptu baby shower out of joy, others appeared upset at the very thought of their idol settling down.

“I swear if Liam got Cheryl pregnant, I’m gonna fight someone,” wrote one clearly tense fan.

The rumours of the couple getting serious have long been swirling, but the baby talk began again when Cheryl appeared looking fuller-faced in a L’Oreal commercial earlier this week.

Now and then: The advert (R) sent speculation wild among fans.

While both parties are yet to comment on the speculation, a source close to the couple recently spoke out to Now magazine about the X Factor judge’s intentions to start a family.

“Cheryl’s never been more determined to have a baby. It’s like it’s the only thing in the world that matters to her.

“She’s never been so focused on something. Cheryl has a stash of pregnancy and motherhood books she’s always reading.”

And if that wasn’t enough to spark the baby buzz, mutual friend of the couple, Simon Cowell, only fueled the fire when asked about the rumours recently.

“I guess that is what happens when you are with someone,” he said to The Mirror.

“Cheryl would be an amazing mum. I have seen her with my son Eric and other kids over the years and she is incredible.”

“She is very good with them. I think she is in a good place in her life right now. I had dinner with her a couple of months ago with Liam and they were great.”

The couple have been inseparable since their romance began earlier this year.

The brunette beauty hasn’t been spotted out in public since the month of June when she accompanied her younger beau to his sister’s wedding.

The couple, who began dating in February, have not yet responded to speculation.
