Cheryl and boyfriend Liam Payne are said to be “beyond happy” to be expecting a child.

But there’s one person we wouldn’t have guessed is too thrilled with the news… Ex husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini.

But rather than appearing bitter or jealous, Jean-Benard has instead praised Cheryl for her pregnancy.

He told The Sun: “It’s a great thing to have babies. There are so many sad things these days, if everyone was creating life, the world would be a better place.”

Cheryl and Jean-Benard divorced in October, during a quickie hearing that is said to have lasted only 14 seconds. They were married just 18 months.

Although he’s apparently happy for Cheryl, Jean-Benard also commented that the singer didn’t actually tell him the news herself. Instead, he found out by reading the news.

Cheryl, 33, and Liam, 23, have now been together for a year and are regularly snapped out and about looking seriously loved up.

A source told The Sun: “Cheryl has told close friends and family the very exciting news that she is expecting her first child.

“She is absolutely ecstatic. It’s something she has been trying for for years.

“She doesn’t want to speak publicly about it for a number of reasons, particularly due to some of the battles she has gone through in her personal life in recent years.”

The baby is reportedly due in February.
