According to a source, Payne has bought the right for Cheryl's 33rd birthday, which falls on Thursday. This has fuelled rumours that they are planning to get married, reports

The couple started dating eight months ago.

However, they have to wait for their wedding till the time Cheryl's divorce from Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini is finalised as they are locked in a battle over finances.

Cheryl and Fernandez-Versini got married in 2014 and split from each other late last year.
