    Sometimes you just gotta stop fighting for this love…

    After 2 years together, Cheryl Cole and Liam Payne have decided to part ways.

    The former One Direction singer and X Factor UK judge have been an item since early 2016 and are parents to Bear, who they welcomed in March 2017.

    Both parties confirmed their split via their Twitter accounts.

    “Cheryl and I are sad to announce that we are going our separate ways,” the 24-year-old wrote. “It’s been a tough decision for us to make. We still have so much love for each other as a family. Bear is our world and we ask that you respect his privacy as we navigate our way through this together.”

    Cheryl — who celebrated her 35th birthday just the day before — shared the same message.

    We guess they’ll always have midnight memories…
