Liam Payne's puppy duties 'impressing girlfriend Cheryl'

Liam Payne's devotion to his pet puppy is said to have proved to his girlfriend Cheryl that he'll make a great dad.

The One Direction hunk and British popstar revealed they had adopted a pooch with an adorable photo on Instagram last week (ends17Jul16), with Cheryl, 33, captioning a photo of Liam and the Chihuahua: "Our new family member (dog and smilie emojis) he is beyond cute.. the dog is adorable too."

The move comes amid rumours the couple is hoping to start a family one day, and it seems as though Liam's dedication to looking after the animal, along with Cheryl's other dogs, has got her thinking even more about the future.

"Cheryl has told pals she is ready to start a family," an insider told Britain's Reveal magazine. "She's watched Liam on daddy duty with their new dog. He is so devoted to their dogs that Cheryl believes they will be the perfect parents."

Cheryl, who split from husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini in January (16), and her 22-year-old beau have apparently hinted to friends that it might not be long until they start a family together, and the brunette beauty is keen to raise kids in a household with pets. But one thing that is said to be worrying the singer is how her body will change with pregnancy.

"Cheryl's joked to pals that it will be just her luck if she blows up like a space hopper once she's expecting," the source laughed. "She's already dreading the possibility that she may get cankles (ankles that merge with calf)."

Cheryl isn't alone in her figure being judged though, as Hollywood star Jennifer Aniston, 47, was recently hit with claims that she's expecting her first child after being spotted with a rounded stomach while on a beach. The actress penned an angry article for The Huffington Post about how she's been judged, which Cheryl posted a link to on Twitter with the caption: "Just when I thought I couldn't love her any more."
