The 23-year-old Payne and the 33-year-old Cole, who started dating a year ago, have been flaunting their love all over Instagram for months now. Payne and Cole originally met on the set of The X Factor UK in 2008 when Payne auditioned for the show. Cole, formerly a member of the British girl group Girls Aloud, was one of the judges.

In 2010, Payne would return to the show for another audition where he would meet his One Direction bandmates and continued to flirt with Cole. Though the two never announced their coupledom, the two made things official back in May when they stepped out together at Eva Longoria’s Global Gift Gala. Payne is not the only new dad in One Direction. His bandmate Louis Tomlinson welcomed his first baby boy back in January.
