Cheryl posted a similar announcement on Twitter.

Their relationship started from X Factor U.K. The pair first met while Cheryl was a judge on the show, and Payne a contestant, in 2008. The “Strip That Down” singer was paired with Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik on the reality competition series to create former boy band One Direction.

In an interview with The Sun in May 2017, Payne seemed to insinuate that the couple had no plans to wed, telling the outlet, “I see marriage as more of a religious thing and I’m not really a religious person.”

He further told The Sun, “We have a baby together — you know, our love for each other can’t be more serious, so it is what it is I guess.”

Cheryl was previously married to Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini for 19 months. Payne split up with longtime girlfriend Sophia Smith in October 2015.
