It's been a long time coming, but this week Liam Payne and Cheryl Cole have finally announced the name they chose for their newborn baby boy. Bear Payne is just over a month old and fans are dying to get a closer look at him. Liam and Cheryl have been super private about the pregnancy and the birth – only opening up a handful of times about their new life as parents.
When Bear first arrived into the world Liam posted a photo on Instagram with the caption, "My close friends and family know there are very few times when I'm left speechless... wow! I'm incredibly happy to welcome our new baby boy into the world, it's a moment that I will never forget for the rest of my life and my favourite memory I have so far. I'm completely in awe of his incredible mother and how she has been the whole way through this, she's really made my dreams come true. We haven't named him yet but he's already capturing hearts including mine. I feel very blessed. Happy Mother's Day everyone!"
Now, the One Direction crooner is talking about how is home life has changed ever since becoming a father to Bear. Liam chatted with a fan and said, "Were you on Judge Rinder? I saw you, I saw you. There’s a lot of daytime TV at home now we’ve got the baby."
LOL! To be clear, Judge Rinder is a daytime U.K. talk show featuring Robert Rinder, a criminal judge, who rules on real-life cases. Think of it as the U.K.'s version of Judge Judy!
If Liam can recognize someone who was probably only on the show once, it means he's got a lot of down time. Clearly, his life has changed. Before Bear made his debut, Liam was traveling the world with 1D, he was hanging out with so many different people, meeting fans, making music and truly living a fast paced life.
Now, it's daytime television for this guy.
However, we have a feeling Liam is loving the days off and being able to spend as much time as possible with his son. Being a dad is something brand new in his life and watching Bear grow up is definitely one of his top priorities right now. And just keep in mind, if you happen to appear on the show Judge Ringer in the U.K. – Liam could be watching!
