It’s no secret that Liam Payne and Cheryl Cole are crazy in love (they’re expecting a baby together!), but we rarely hear the 23-year-old singer talk about his girlfriend.

That’s about to change! In a new interview with Rollacoaster magazine, the former One Directioner professed his love for Cheryl, revealing how much she means to him. Cue the feels!

“Obviously I have the most ­beautiful girlfriend in the world and she’s absolutely amazing,” Liam gushed. “She’s been my dream girl since I was younger. She’s so ace.”

Liam and Cheryl have been dating for over a year, and first met on ‘The X Factor’ back in 2010. He couldn’t be happier to have such a talented lady by his side:

“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,” he added.

Crushing so hard on Liam? Us too!
