Liam Payne is having a baby with girlfriend Cheryl Cole. He would have no problem supporting his first child considering his net worth of $50 million despite One Direction’s hiatus.
The One Direction member Liam Payne, 23 and former X Factor judge Cheryl Cole, 33 are expecting their first child. Liam and Cheryl’s “big reveal” happened weeks after Cheryl’s disguise of her figure on various TV shows and personal appearances. The couple debuted Cheryl’s baby bump in London for St. James’ Christmas Carol Concert. They were present in support of Cheryl’s own charity Cheryl’s Trust and The Prince’s Trust, according to The Sun.
Liam Payne has a net worth of $50 million with the level of success that One Direction gained for the past years before their hiatus. The band has released five albums with a contract with Syco Records. Consequently, the band has won awards and made millions of dollars.
While on a report by Gazette Review, Made in the A.M. sold like hotcakes upon release, selling 2.4 million copies worldwide in 2015. The band made around $130 million in 2015 where Liam Payne made anywhere between $10 and $25 million. From his former earnings, One Direction has made around $1.5 million per concert, on average. Gazette Review estimates that Liam makes approximately $150,000 to $300,000 per concert. Liam also owns multiple properties. In early 2015, he dropped over £5 million or around $7.5 million on a mansion located in Surrey, England. He drives a Lamborghini Aventador, which costs around $400,000.
People stated that on October, Liam announced his solo deal with Republic Records, making him the second member of One Direction to officially embark on a solo career. Gratuitously, he offered fans a taste of his solo sound with his Big Payno electronic remixes of popular songs and a few snippets he posted on Instagram.
Presently, Liam has a new project and that is fatherhood. Liam is sure to be a good father. He will still make good money with his new projects and with fellow One Direction member Niall Horan confirming on an interview with The Sun that the band “will be back”.
