Cheryl’s bitter divorce battle with Jean Bernard Fernandez-Versini will finally come to an end on Thursday, according to reports. Sources tell MailOnline the former Girls Aloud singer is overjoyed to ‘finally move on with her life’ following months of legalities over the separation. The 33-year-old, who is said to be pregnant with her boyfriend Liam Payne’s child, will not pay her ex-husband any money, according to insiders.
The couple, who were married for just over a year before starting divorce proceedings, will be granted a decree nisi at the High Court in London on Thursday after agreeing on divorce terms two months ago, The Sun reports. However the singer, who is said to be ‘pregnant’ with 23-year-old Liam’s baby, will reportedly not change her name immediately, while she focuses on ‘other things’.
‘She is in a great place at the moment and is really happy with Liam so she’s delighted that she can officially draw a line under her marriage to JB. This means she can now focus on the future’. Meanwhile claims that they are expecting their first child are reaching fever pitch. Cheryl and Liam put the rumours aside on Sunday, as they reunited for date night, going hand-in-hand to dinner at Nobu in London.
Reports of a first pregnancy for the famous couple then gained traction when Cheryl’s mother Joan Callaghan was pictured buying baby goods. The sighting appeared to confirm the news, though a spokesperson for Cheryl has since refused to comment when contacted by MailOnline. Liam also raised eyebrows when he changed his Official Twitter bio to say he was ‘the happiest man in the world’.
Liam and Cheryl went public with their romance in February, shortly after it was announced that her marriage to Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Verisini was over. It later came to light that the couple had struck up a bond during filming for the 2015 series of the X Factor, on the approach to last Christmas. They first met when a 14-year-old Liam auditioned for the singing competition as a solo artist in 2008 and Cheryl – married at the time to first husband Ashley Cole – was serving on the panel as a judge.
