Mum's the word for Cheryl Cole when it comes to her pregnancy. But she is all too happy to talk about Christmas.

In a recent interview with the U.K. newspaper The Mirror's Notebook magazine, the 33-year-old X Factor co-judge made no mention of her upcoming arrival, which neither she nor boyfriend Liam Payne, the father, have ever spoken about publicly.

Cole had showcased her baby bump on a night out with the 23-year-old One Direction singer last week, following months of speculation, while a source told E! News she is in her second trimester.

In her interview with Notebook, Cole talked mostly about Christmas. She said this year, she does not want presents and that for her, the holiday is all about family.

"You know what, that stopped for me a few years back. I used to really look forward to what I was going to get, but now I just don't need anything," Cole said. "I just love the quiet time, the family time. Being with people, that's what's important to me. I like giving gifts more than receiving them. Selfishly. I actually get more pleasure out of watching their faces, giving them something they really want."

Cole also told Notebook she likes to wear "nice Christmassy" pajamas on Christmas Day and when asked if she prefers "an elasticated waistband these days," she said, "Yeah...that room!"

Cole also talked about her and Payne's dogs. The two recently obtained a new Chihuahua puppy.

"Oh, I always dress the dogs up," Cole told Notebook. "They hate it. They actually refuse to walk around in their Christmas outfits, But I buy them Christmas stockings, they like what's in there, so I'm like, 'Suck it up!'"
