Liam Payne and Cheryl are reportedly expecting, and while the two haven't formally provided a confirmation (although the press is sure of it), it's rapidly becoming the worst kept secret.

Now, Liam's One Direction buddy Niall Horan might have just spilled the beans.

After Chezza was pictured sporting what many are calling a baby bump in late November, Niall's weighed in on the matter this month — perhaps too much — while chatting with Daily Star Online this week at the opening of Larry King's salon in West London.

According to the publication, Niall says Liam "confided in him about becoming a dad."

"I'm looking forward to it," the Irish star reportedly said. "Liam hasn't said he's nervous but I'm sure he is. I bet he can't wait as well. It is a very exciting thing in your life. He's great and she's lovely, it will be a lovely child."

Chezza hasn't said a thing on Twitter since New Year's Eve, and Liam's reportedly hard at work on his forthcoming solo debut — and quite possibly prepping to become the latest 1D dad.

We'll find out soon enough.
