Liam Payne and Cheryl Cole welcomed their first child, a boy named Bear, in late March 2017, and it seems Payno is adjusting rather well to the life change. The second in the 1D clan to become a daddy, following band mate Louis Tomlinson who welcomed son Freddie in January 2016, it seems Liam is learning first hand the excitement of parenthood.
In an interview with vlogger Casper Lee, he was rather open regarding his son.
‘I’m looking forward to when my son starts walking and talking – it’s gonna be the most amazing thing in the whole world.’ – Liam Payne
He also revealed the babies middle name, Grey, while chatting with KISS FM and that Cheryl handles all the late night feeds in preparation for when Liam begins touring in support of his solo work.
“I’ll be honest with you, she’s doing it all herself at the moment because she wants to know what it feels like when I’m not there. She knows that I’m going on tour, so obviously she’s got a lot to deal with. Which is hard. I thought that I’d get the call saying, ‘we need a nanny for this’, but no, she’s doing everything. She’s really pushing herself with it, bless her.” – Liam Payne
As much as Liam wants to be a hands on dad, he admits that feedings are really a woman’s thing, especially since Cheryl is breastfeeding.
“You have that super power as a woman, where you are, you know, your heartbeats are in even in sync.” – Liam
But the one thing for baby Bear that was all on Liam? Giving up smoking! When he learned he was about to be a father, the 1D star gave up the habit for the health of the newborn. And one unique and aww-inducing tid bit Liam revealed? That little Bear may be making a musical debut, as his proud Papa incorporated audio of the babies heart beat along with a drum beat. No plans on a specific song yet, but soon we may all get to hear a very special tribute to the newest little Payne.
