Apparently Liam Payne is asking Louis for parenting tips and #WHY?!

Is another royal baby on its way?

By Bianca Mastroianni

Resident One Direction daddy - no not Louis - but Liam Payne, might actually become an IRL dad soon, and yep, we're freaking out.

Louis' adventure through childbirth (well, Briana's) was the most scandalous thing to come out of that band, but unsurprisingly Liam becoming a dad doesn't shock us too much...

Liam is ~supposedly~ (and take this with a grain of salt) is asking Louis for parenting advice, reports Hollywood Life.

"While Cheryl and Liam won’t confirm if they are expecting a baby, Liam has been overly keen in asking Louis lots of baby-related questions of late," the source said.

They added: "Even Louis thought it was strange himself and asked Liam if Cheryl was pregnant. Liam ducked the question, but it left Louis a little surprised that he was being quizzed about fatherhood so much."

It was only earlier this month that 1D mentor Simon Cowell revealed Liam and Cheryl are totally ready for kids.

"Cheryl would be an amazing mum. I have seen her with my son Eric and other kids over the years and she is incredible. She is very good with them. I think she is in a good place in her life right now. I had dinner with her a couple of months ago with Liam and they were great."

What is surprising is that these rumours are coming out a day after the two have allegedly been fighting and growing apart as Cheryl wants Liam to sign an non-disclosure agreement prohibiting him from revealing details about their relationship...

Who knows what to believe anymore? But we would welcome a bub from Daddy Liam any day.
