Following his recent health issues, Liam Payne is celebrating a milestone.
The One Direction star is now 30, which will definitely have X Factor viewers wondering where the time has gone.
However, the day will be extra memorable for Liam, who raised eyebrows last week when he was forced to cancel his planned tour owing to a dangerous kidney ailment.
Liam’s girlfriend Kate Cassidy, 24, surprised her fans with a series of previously unseen photos to celebrate her boyfriend’s birthday.
Kate, who is from New Jersey in the United States, took to social media to show admirers a carousel of selfies from their relationship.
The first was a photo of them on a recent vacation, with Liam in bathing shorts displaying his toned body and vast tattoo collection.
Other photos show the beautiful pair touring Disneyland and attending upscale events.
Kate ended her message with a short video of Liam dancing and smiling in front of a rainbow.
Her caption read: ’30 never looked so good ❤️ happy birthday love’.
Fans flooded the comments section with birthday greetings for Liam and gushed about his romance with the model.
‘Aweee this is so cute! Happy birthday Liam! ❤️’, one wrote.
‘So cute, happy birthday Liam ! Take care of him please ❤️’, begged another.
Liam and Kate began dating in October 2022, and she has over 40,000 Instagram followers.
They became Instagram official one month later, after temporarily splitting in May of this year before reconnecting.
Kate is said to have been by Liam’s side during his recent health worries, which prompted him to share an emotional update with followers.
The Strip That Down hitmaker was scheduled to tour South America beginning September 1.
Fans have been compensated, and Liam has promised to put on a ‘better’ concert when he feels better.
He announced in a solemn video: ‘This really is the last thing I wanted to be telling you, but basically, I’ve been a little bit unwell recently and I ended up in hospital with a bad kidney infection.
‘We started rehearsals and I’ve just been advised that now’s really not the right time to be out on the road while I recover from this.’
He informed everyone that he had the ‘greatest personnel’ at home to assist him in his recuperation.
Fans were concerned, though, because the pop artist has talked frankly about his troubles with stardom and how his mental health deteriorated during 1D’s sabbatical.
‘I’m worried for you my angel. Please get well soon’, one person wrote to him.
Another said to the star: ‘Please get well soon!! We’re all worried about you, like immensely much, we can’t see you suffering, at least I can’t, I wish you good luck and all the best and everything positive in the world, you mean so much to me.’
