In a publicity photo for L'Oreal Paris' partnership with The Prince's Trust -- first published by The Mirror U.K. -- the 33-year-old X Factor U.K. judge can be seen rocking a skin-tight black dress, and standing in profile to put her growing bump on display.
Rumors that Cole and her boyfriend, One Direction singer Liam Payne, were expecting a child together first popped up in November when the couple attended the Fayre of St. James' charity Christmas concert in London, England.
The pair have still not publicly addressed the pregnancy news, though Cole proudly displaying her pregnant belly seems to be a sweetly simple confirmation.
The couple first met in 2008 when Payne auditioned for The X Factor U.K., but they didn't officially begin dating until last February, and have been navigating recurring and persistent pregnancy rumors since nearly the beginning of their relationship.
In December, Payne took part in an #AskLiam Twitter Q&A, and while he avoided directly answering fans' questions about whether or not he and Cole were expecting a child, Payne boasted that he's "the happiest I could be." Check out the video below to hear more.
