Cheryl is headed stateside to record new music.
The former X Factor judge, who welcomed her first child Bear with boyfriend Liam Payne in March, hasn't released new music since her 2014 album Only Human, which featured hits like Crazy Stupid Love.
According to the Daily Mirror, the 34-year-old met with her label Polydor back in May, and is now working on getting a work visa for the US.
"Cheryl’s got a longer US visa so she can go back and forth more frequently to the States. She hasn’t started working on the new album yet as she is still enjoying her time off with Bear," a source said.
"She’s loved their time together as she adjusted to being a mum and is still easing herself back into work.
"But 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.
The news comes after Cheryl stopped for a selfie with a fan at the US Embassy in London on Thursday - which was her first public appearance in months.
New music from Cheryl is expected next year.
