On Thursday, November 7, Liam Payne had fans going crazy after he appeared to admit that he wants to get together with ex-girlfriend, Cheryl Cole. As fans know, the pair were together for three years and had a son, Bear, before breaking up in July 2018.

The former One Direction singer got real about becoming a dad at such a young age and how that affected his past relationship with the 36-year-old singer in the upcoming documentary, Liam Payne: Straight Talking.

“Becoming a dad at such a young age, it’s such a difficult thing. And I think I built fatherhood up so much in my head that it kind of messed me up to start with. I started in a bad place with it,” he told Ant Middleton, the documentary’s host. “I think it spooked me out early on, and I was just worried I would not be enough to look after the both of them. They’re so important to me — Cheryl as well.”

The 26-year-old went on to talk about his ex and how, despite having broken up, she’s still the most important person in his life.

“She’s one of the most, if not the most, important people in my life. I’m lucky I have someone who understands what I’m going through. The one thing I was missing as a man in the relationship I had, was a level understanding about what she was feeling about stuff. I think I learnt through being away that, while I want to protect her, there’s a big part of her that wants to protect me.”

That’s not all, Liam even revealed that the pair might still get back together “if she plays her cards right.” He then went on to say he’d be in trouble for admitting that.

This admission came just after the “Stack It Up” singer gushed about his relationship with new girlfriend, Maya Henry.

“I am yeah, I am. I am very lucky. She is really great. I’m very happy right now,” he told KISS FM UK back in September.
