Now this is something fans weren’t expecting to see while tapping through Instagram! Liam Payne just posted a half naked photo of himself on his Instagram Stories, before quickly deleting it.

Yes, you heard us correctly. The 25-year-old “Strip That Down” singer took to social media on August 22 to post a selfie, which just showed his abs. While there’s nothing super explicit about the picture, the singer definitely appears to be naked under his bed sheets. And so naturally, fans went absolutely wild over the photo.

The One Direction member quickly took down the photo, leading fans to believe that posting it was a total accident. Talk about awkward! Despite the fact that he deleted the post, plenty of eagle-eyed fans were able to grab screenshots before it disappeared. We mean, he does have a whopping 17.6 million followers — nothing gets by them!

While the “Familiar” singer’s face isn’t visible in the image, it’s safe to say the photo is legit — as his tattoo-filled arm is shown in the picture. So yeah, it’s safe to say the photo was actually him. No hacking happening here!

It doesn’t look like Liam is going to address the fact that we’ve all seen him half naked, as he just went back to posting like nothing happened! Yep, that’s right. On August 23, the musician posted a sweet photo of his hands guiding his son Bear‘s fingers on the piano. Ugh, Liam teaching his son how to play the piano is a vision we didn’t know we needed in our lives until now. Our hearts are seriously bursting into a million piece right now.

“Twinkle twinkle hand in hand,” Liam captioned it. Looks like the little guy is a musician in the making. How cute?!

Whether or not Liam meant to post that shirtless selfie, it doesn’t seem like he’s sweating it! After all, he did pose completely naked not too long ago.
