One Direction star Liam Payne opens up for the first time about this love of his life!
It was confirmed in February that Payne, 23, and his girlfriend of one year Cheryl Cole — who performs under the name Cheryl — were expecting their first child. Now, the multimillionaire heartthrob is gushing over the woman of his dreams in a new interview with Rollercoaster magazine.
The One Direction superstar revealed that Cheryl, 10 years his senior, was the girl of his dreams as a scruffy teenager. “This is the thing. In a non-cliche way, it’s weird waking up every day and literally living out your dream. You wake up in the most beautiful places,” he said. “Obviously I have the most beautiful girlfriend in the world and she’s absolutely amazing. She’s been my dream girl since I was younger. She’s so ace.”
Payne and Cheryl are among the U.K.’s top power couples, amassing millions of record sales as part of One Direction and Girls Aloud respectively. Ironically, Payne first met the soon-to-be mother of his child when she was a judge on the 2011 series of “X-Factor” — the same show which gave birth to 1D.
The heartthrob singer could not help but praise Cheryl, “She is a wonderful, wonderful person and it’s amazing to have someone who can relate to so much of things — someone who’s taken greater steps than me.”
And he looks up to her both as a love interest and as an artist. “Her solo career was amazing. She’s been in the industry for 14 years now,” Payne continued. “She fully supports me. We’re super happy. It’s a very personal, precious time for us. I’m still learning. I’m only 23.” Panye may soon be the fourth member of One Direction to embark on a solo career, so you can bet he appreciates that wealth of knowledge.
Aside from singing praise for his girlfriend, Payne also recalled a heated encounter he had with the current U.S. president. “Donald Trump actually kicked us out of his hotel once. You wouldn’t believe it,” he dished. “It was about [meeting] his daughter. He phoned up our manager and we were asleep. He said, ‘Well, wake them up’ and I was like ‘No’ and then he wouldn’t let us use the underground garage.”
“Obviously in New York we can’t really go outside. New York is ruthless for us. So he was like, ‘OK, then I don’t want you in my hotel.’ So we had to leave.”
