‘She is looking forward to getting out there and starting recording. She still has ambitions as a singer and will be a working mum,’ they added.
Something kinda ooh! The former Girls Aloud star, 34, is reportedly planning to record her fifth solo album as she works on her comeback
The brunette beauty, who is signed to Polydor, released her last Cheryl’s last album was 2014’s Only Human, having released her debut solo record, 3 Words, back in 2009.
She flew to fame on ITV talent show Popstars: The Rivals in 2002, forming hit girl group Girls Aloud along with Kimberley Walsh, Nicola Roberts, Sarah Harding and Nadine Coyle.
Cheryl has kept a low profile since welcoming her first son Bear with boyfriend Liam Payne into the world in March.
The smiling Girls Aloud star looked incredible as she showed off her svelte post-baby figure in a chic leather jacket and cargo pants for the relaxed outing.

The former X Factor judge worked her glossy brown locks into a low-ponytail while face-framing strands fell loosely around her high cheekbones.
Adding height to her petite frame the singer rocked a vertiginous pair of black ankle boots with a sharp stiletto heel.
Cheryl was surrounded by thrilled fans who were gobsmacked to see her at the embassy after keeping a low-profile for several months.
One starstruck fan told MailOnline they overheard the mother-of-one saying she was applying for a temporary visa.
Meanwhile, beauty queen Ursula Carlton, 26, bumped into the chart topper in the government building and shared a candid Twitter selfie with her.

Speaking exclusively to MailOnline about the chance meeting, Ursula revealed that Cheryl looked ‘amazing, stunning and glowing’ as she arrived at the Embassy at the same time.
Taken aback after bumping into the popstar, the pageant queen admitted that aside from looking gorgeous, Cheryl was looking better than ever following the birth of her first child.
She added: ‘She was beautiful. She seemed so happy and relaxed. Completely snapped back into shape.
‘Having just a couple of weeks left of my reign, it was really exciting to meet Cheryl. She is certainly inspiring to so many young people so it was a joy to meet her.
Ursula, who hands over her crown on September 15, added that there’s ‘definitely a spare seat’ for Cheryl, Liam and baby Bear at the live finals.
She’s back! Cheryl is set for her first post-baby interview on This Morning five months after welcoming son Bear earlier this month
Her comments come after she uploaded the smiling snap with Cheryl to the micro-blogging platform on Thursday.
The fresh-faced Scottish stunner smiled in her green and white striped shirt for the selfie alongside the Fight For The Love hitmaker – who covered her delicate featured with a pair of oversized shades.
Representing Great Britain in Miss Tourism World finals, the blonde bombshell captioned the snap: ‘Met this lovely lady this morning, the beautiful @CherylOfficial’.
Aberdeen-born Ursula took the title of Miss Great Britain from disgraced Love Island star Zara Holland after her sex scandal.
Discussing the incident which saw Zara romping with Alex Bowen in steamy scenes from the show, she said it’s important for the title holder to act as a shining example to young fans.
The Scottish beauty told FEMAIL: ‘Zara wanted to use the title to become famous and she wasn’t thinking about being a role model for younger girls.’
Ursula’s chance meeting with Cheryl comes after she returned from maternity leave with a sizzling L’Oreal Paris shoot at the beginning of August.
Exciting: ‘[We are going to show it] over the next few weeks, we aren’t going to tell you when. We haven’t got a TX date yet. We are not going to tell you what she said, but Liam was there with his ‘wife’ as he has been calling her.’ Rylan Clark confirmed of the pair
Appreciative: Liam’s parenting skills have certainly impressed Cheryl as she had previously gushed about her beau: ‘You are the most amazing daddy and the best example for our son. The way he looks at you says it all’
The singer shunned the press when she was pregnant, but has decided to break her silence and will appear on ITV show This Morning ‘in the next few weeks’.
Cheryl was interviewed behind-the-scenes on her new L’Oreal advert by Rylan Clark Neal, who teased the news on Instagram.
But while it was first thought that Liam would be joining her, it’s simply not the case.
Rylan said in a video clip: ‘Cheryl has gone back to work on her L’Oreal advert and This Morning were there…
‘Cheryl rang us up and said come along – I’ll give you my only TV interview. We are going to show it] over the next few weeks, we aren’t going to tell you when.
‘We haven’t got a TX date yet. We are not going to tell you what she said, but Liam was there with his ‘wife’ as he has been calling her.’
Clearing up the confusion: Meanwhile, Liam Payne, 23, recently confirmed that he and Cheryl are not in fact married, telling People magazine the pair were yet to say their ‘I do’s’
How it started: Rumours began circulating after the former One Direction singer twice referred to Cheryl as his wife
Lost in translation: The Strip That Down hit-maker moved to explain to his confused U.S fanbase that his use of the term was colloquial rather than literal
The post follows rumours of a secret wedding after Liam Payne twice referred to Cheryl as his wife.
But Liam has since confirmed that he and girlfriend Cheryl are not in fact married, telling People magazine the pair were yet to say their ‘I do’s’.
The two have been documenting their journey through parenthood together online – teasing glimpses of their blissful life together, to their millions of followers.
However, rumours began circulating after the former One Direction singer twice referred to Cheryl as his wife. In May while appearing on SiriusXM, he said: ‘I left my wife and child at home and I was straight out to In-N-Out burger. I’m just kidding.’
But the Strip That Down hitmaker moved to explain to his confused US fanbase that his use of the term was colloquial rather than literal.
Laughing off the claims, a tickled Liam told the website: ‘In the U.K you say ‘the Mrs’ but maybe one day (we’ll get married).’
Family ties: Both Liam and Cheryl have been focusing on little Bear and have decided to not share too much of their little cherub’s progress online
History: Cheryl was first linked to her beau – who is 10 years her junior – in December 2015, after being reacquainted on The X Factor final of that year – they confirmed their romance thre months later
And he again called the X-Factor star his spouse in an interview with French website On The Move while promoting his latest single.
Liam said: ‘To be honest with you I don’t know yet what it is like to write while being a father, I have not passed through this experience.
‘I have something that I’m preparing with Timbaland and I was writing with Pharrell (Williams) when his wife was pregnant along with my wife for that matter.’
But recognising that his word use had gotten lost in translation he finally cleared up the rumours.
Both Liam and Cheryl have been focusing on little Bear and have decided not to share too much of their little cherub’s progress online.
Stealing a glimpse: Liam has toyed with fans by sharing an adorable photo of himself and his son sporting the same trainers to his Instagram, carefully concealing his son’s face in the snap
Although, fans did get their first glimpse of baby Bear back in March when the duo announced their arrival of their son on Mother’s Day, with both Liam and Cheryl sharing the same photo of him tenderly cradling onto his newborn to Instagram.
Cheryl had penned: ‘On Wednesday 22nd March Liam and I became parents to an incredibly beautiful, healthy baby boy, weighing 7lb 9 and looking like a dream. Although he still doesn’t have a name he is already stealing hearts.’
She continued: ‘We are all madly in love and overwhelmingly happy with our little arrival. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers around the world. A day that now has a different meaning to me forever.’
Liam, meanwhile, had gushed: ‘My close friends and family know there are very few times when I’m left speechless… wow!

Turning heads: Her most recent outing at the US embassy proved Chery had snapped effortlessly back to her pre-baby weight. Pictured left, at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival and right, at Vogue 100 Festival the same year
‘I’m incredibly happy to welcome our new baby boy into the world, it’s a moment that I will never forget for the rest of my life and my favourite memory I have so far.’
Referring to Cheyl, he added: ‘I’m completely in awe of his incredible mother and how she has been the whole way through this, she’s really made my dreams come true… he’s already capturing hearts including mine. I feel very blessed.’
Since then, Liam has toyed with fans by sharing an adorable photo of himself and his son sporting the same trainers to his Instagram.
He was careful to conceal baby Bear’s face, however, not surprisingly leaving fans urging for more photos of his little boy.
Liam had sweetly captioned the post: ‘Like father, like son.’
The Strip That Down singer has previously discussed previously his trials and tribulations as a new father and discussing nappy changing duties, he laughed: ‘I’m good at the hand block – you gotta be like a ninja.
‘My girlfriend gets peed on a lot. We have a laugh about it, I mean she’s super chilled, so we have a laugh.
Hands-on: He as previously discussed previously his trials and tribulations as a new father and discussing nappy changing duties, laughing: ‘You gotta be like a ninja’
‘I’d never changed a nappy and the first time with Bear – I was meant to practice on a doll but I don’t really carry them about, so my first time was with Bear,’ he added.
‘The nurse helped me a bit, I’ll be honest, but I learnt really quick because as a father you do have instincts. I mean nothing compared to a mother’s but as father you have an instinct to want to take care of the whole unit of the family.’
And his hands-on approach has certainly impressed Cheryl, as she credited her beau for taking so well to parenthood in June.
She said: ‘You are the most amazing daddy and the best example for our son. The way he looks at you says it all.’
‘Your relationship melts my heart,’ she confessed. ‘You are the centre of his world & We adore you.’
It seems the former Girls Aloud star is just as smitten with boyfriend Liam too, as the duo are often seen flaunting their relationship on social media and their ‘date nights’ together.

The couple had confirmed their romance in February 2016, after first being linked the previous December having been re-acquainted at the 2015 X Factor final.
Their romance came just months after Cheryl split from ex-husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini. They had wed in a beach ceremony on the private island of Mustique in July 2014 – their divorce was finalised in October 2016.
She and Liam, meanwhile, had kept coy on their relationship at first, choosing to keep fans guessing with a slew of social posts where Cheryl joked about having a ‘mystery man’.
The pair famously met when Liam auditioned on The X Factor in 2008 – while Cheryl, 10 years his senior, was a judge and he was just 14. He didn’t get through, but returned in 2010 as a 16-year-old and progressed through to judges’ houses, eventually being chosen to join One Direction.
Liam had infamously winked at the Fight For This Love hit-maker during his X Factor audition and he admits he is still mocked now by his friends for doing so.
He told The Sun: ‘I always, always had a crush on her. I got back to school the next day and when my friends saw it they were literally ripping the p*** out of me.’
However, he did joke: ‘Now they can’t say it didn’t work. The wink is powerful, it has powers beyond its own means. I have to be careful — it’s a licensed weapon in the UK.’
In the same interview with the paper, Liam admitted that early on into his romance with Cheryl she had tried to cool things off with him.
They have now been together for over a year and a half.
