It was all about pregnancy on today's Loose Women as the panel discussed those pictures of Cheryl sporting what many people reckon is a definite baby bump.

Cheryl, 33, was pictured showing off a rounded midriff on Monday night while attending a Christmas charity carol service with boyfriend Liam Payne.

Neither Chez nor Liam have confirmed a pregnancy, but with Cheryl wearing a tight dress and open coat, many people certainly think she appears pregnant and just wants to keep the news private. Fair enough, right?

On Loose Women, the panel chatted about how happy they are for Cheryl if the news is true, and discussed their own experiences of being mothers or wanting motherhood.

Christine kickstarted the discussion by saying: "Cheryl has said in various interviews over the years she always wanted to be a mum so it got us thinking about that baby deadline that a lot of us women feel for obvious reasons.

"Whether Cheryl feels that or not, we're not quite sure. We're not quite sure if she's pregnant or not; she's not confirming it anyway!"

Christine admitted she'd love to have children of her own after marrying former footballer Frank Lampard last year. He's already dad to daughters Isla and Luna from his relationship with ex-girlfriend Elen Rivas.

"I'm 37 but in my head I'm about 23 or 24!" laughed Christine. "Of course you have to get your head around [the fact] biologically you can't have babies forever, and I would certainly love to have children.

"I think with Frank having two little girls already, you have a strange sense of motherhood without obviously being a mummy. It's a wonderful thing. There are no grandchildren in my family at all, I know my mum and dad would secretly love it, they've never put pressure on us but I know they'd love it

Gloria Hunniford and Martine McCutcheon, meanwhile, both said having children had been the best thing they'd ever done in life.

Bringing the conversation back to Cheryl and Liam, Gloria added: "I'm really really happy for her. I don't understand why she hasn't confirmed it in a more clear fashion because obviously with that tight knitted dress, the baby is there. But she's been through a lot and I think she's really wanted a baby and I'm so happy for her."

Linda Robson added: "They make a lovely couple, don't they?"
