Not sure about you, but we’re all sitting here praying for something ridiculous, like ‘Neverin Payne’ or ‘No Payne’, to be the name of Cheryl and Liam’s baby boy.

The bookies, however, have other ideas.

“In previous interviews Cheryl has suggested that Alfie is her favourite name, but with their joint connection to Simon Cowell there has to be a great chance they will go with that,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.

Other popular names receiving bets are Harry at 10/1, Rickie at 12/1 and Henry at 14/1, which isn’t one we saw coming at all.

Overnight, there was also a surge in popularity for the name Taylor, after Miss Swift, which shot from 33/1 to 3/1.

Cheryl and Liam confirmed that they had welcomed a baby boy on Saturday night (25 March), sharing a picture of him being held on Instagram.

“On Wednesday 22nd March Liam and I became parents to an incredibly beautiful, healthy baby boy, weighing 7lb 9 and looking like a dream,” Cheryl wrote.

“Although he still doesn’t have a name he is already stealing hearts. We are all madly in love and overwhelmingly happy with our little arrival.

“Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers around the world. A day that now has a different meaning to me forever.”

Posting the same image, Liam wrote: “My close friends and family know there are very few times when I’m left speechless… wow!

“I’m incredibly happy to welcome our new baby boy into the world, it’s a moment that I will never forget for the rest of my life and my favourite memory I have so far.

“I’m completely in awe of his incredible mother and how she has been the whole way through this, she’s really made my dreams come true. We haven’t named him yet but he’s already capturing hearts including mine.

“I feel very blessed. Happy Mother’s Day everyone!”
