Liam Payne and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini Make Their Red Carpet Debut as a Couple

So, Liam Payne Is Probably Releasing a Solo Rap Album
A new year brings a new Liam Payne—or so it seems

It’s doesn’t get more official than this.

One Direction’s Liam Payne and his new girlfriend, former X-Factor judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, made their red carpet debut as a couple, as they attended the Global Gift Gala in Paris, France on Monday (May 9, 2016). It may already be a few months since they confirmed their relationship, but this is the their first very public appearance together.

Cheryl looked stunning in a full-length pastel pink dress, while the singer looked handsome in a black suit with a white collarless shirt. The two looked absolutely smitten with one another, walking the red carpet holding hands and smiling from ear to ear. At one point, the 24-year-old was even seen whispering in Cheryl’s ear as she giggled away.
