Cher Lloyd delighted fans over the weekend as she gave a very rare glimpse into her rarely-shared family life.

The former X Factor sensation, 29, has been married to husband Craig Monk since 2013 and shares her four-year-old daughter Delilah-Rae with her long-term partner.

The Want U Back singer keeps her daughter out of the spotlight – always covering her face with emojis when sharing snaps online – but posted a slew of pictures of her husband and their child on New Year's Eve, as she looked back on her highlights from the year.

In the collection of images, young Delilah can be seen enjoying quality time with Cher's loved ones, in addition to the singer enjoying some date nights with her husband Craig.

"Thank you 2022!," Cher began when captioning the post on Instagram.

The mum-of-one continued to say: "This year was full of big changes. From moving house to Delilah starting school

"So happy to be making memories and spending time with those I love.

"Wishing you all the very best for 2023! Sending my love."

Cher shocked fans back in 2013, when she tied the knot with Craig after less than a year of dating.

The Swagger Jagger singer, then 20, uploaded a stunning black-and-white snapshot of their wedding day to Instagram in November 2013, simply captioning it: "18/11/2013."

Cher's former mentor Cheryl was one of many famous faces to congratulate the star, taking to Twitter to write: "Wow!! Heard your good news. Congratulations @CherLloyd I hope you have many more happy years and memories to come. Cheryl x."

The mum-of-one was just 16-years-old when she found fame on the X Factor in 2010 and it was an experience she now describes as an "extremely challenging" time.

Chatting to Rylan Clark – who also appeared on The X Factor in 2012 – about how she handled the paparazzi at such a young age, the Cher admitted she "felt really vulnerable" during her stint on the now-axed ITV show.

"I just always remember knowing not to wear a skirt without shorts," Cher confessed on the Ry-Union podcast in 2021.

"At times I'd get really angry. I felt angry because I'd go to a rehearsal, leave the studio, and chased on my own, chased by a group of 20 to 25 men with cameras," Cher explained to the It Takes Two presenter.

She went on to recall: "I just felt really vulnerable. There'd be a chaperone person for everyone as a group, of course, we were underage.

"But at times, from walking to the studio or a car, you'd be alone. That didn't stop. The sheer amount of paparazzi would wait outside of those studios. I just always remember knowing not to wear a skirt without shorts.

"You'd go to get in the car and the first thing they'd do was place the camera below.

"It happened all the time and I just think, I spent a lot of time being very frustrated that I felt alone."

Shortly after appearing on The X Factor, Cher met Craig, and in 2018, the singer gave birth to their first child together, Delilah.

In 2021, Cher celebrated eight years of marriage with her husband with a sweet collection of throwback pictures and snaps taken on their wedding day.

"I'll love you forever," the singer told Craig as she paid tribute to their relationship on Instagram.
