The popstar couple have teased fans with Instagram photos, posed on the red carpet together and shown off their baby bump and now Liam has lifted the lid on his relationship with Chezza. Opening up he revealed just how perfect their relationship is: "This is the thing. In a non-cliché way, it’s weird waking up every day and literally living out your dream.

"You wake up in the most beautiful places. Obviously I have the most beautiful girlfriend in the world and she’s absolutely amazing.

The 23-year-old who first met his girlfriend back on the X Factor in 2008 admitted dating someone in the same industry has helped their relationship: "She is a wonderful, wonderful person and it’s amazing to have someone who can relate to so much of things — someone who’s taken greater steps than me.

"Her solo career was amazing. She’s been in the industry for 14 years now," he told Rollacoaster magazine.

He continued: "She fully supports me. We’re super happy. It’s a very personal, precious time for us. I’m still learning. I’m only 23."

The happy couple – who have a 10 year age gap - first met back in 2008 when Liam, 14, and he auditioned for the X Factor. It's safe to say they got on right away, Chezza even said: "I like you, I think you're really cute. I think you've got charisma and you give us that little cheeky wink."

Unfortunately for Liam he didn't get pass the Judges Houses but he returned to the show two years later and ended up in the band One Direction. The pair surprised the whole world last year February when they hinted they were dating after teasing fans on Instagram. Since confirming their relationship the pair have been spotted at red events, they have a dog together and are expecting their first child.
