Liam Payne has a lot of tattoos but the tattoo of an eye on his arm has officially become the creepiest artwork on his body.

There was always speculation that the tattoo was for Cheryl Cole. Not only that but it actually was Cheryl’s eye. No one understood what the significance of her eye being on his arm could mean but that news was quickly swept under the rug once the world realized she was pregnant. Now that baby Bear Payne has been welcomed into the world, the tattoo nonsense is back on the table.

Here is the tattoo that had everyone speculating months ago.

Well, the speculation has officially ended. Liam confirmed that the tattoo was of Cheryl’s eye! He chatted with fans during a meet and greet in Boston, Massachusetts where he reportedly gave all the details. But, what is the meaning behind it? Apparently, Liam said, “Sometimes it feels like she’s always watching.”

Ahhh, what? So, he likes the fact that even when he’s away from her she always has her eye on him? Like, in a spying type of way? We’re cringing.

We’re not entirely sure why he’d want to be symbolically babysat by the mother of his child 24/7 but hey, who knows. Liam may not look at it that way. Maybe the tattoo comforts him when he’s alone on the road. Maybe, it helps him not give into temptations while he’s away. Regardless, it’s permanent. Hopefully, these two last forever because Cheryl will always be watching.

Liam has become an open book recently. He also chatted with Total Access about his son’s unique moniker and said, “It was like an internal battle. I wanted a more traditional name and she wanted a name that was more unusual. And the reason she chose Bear, in the end, was because Bear is a name that when you leave a room, you won’t forget. And I like that.”

The former boy band heartthrob dropped a major bombshell when he chatted with SiriusXM’s Morning Mash Up about how much he loves the fast food chain In-N-Out Burger. While that all seems super normal, Liam referred to Cheryl as his wife. Yes, his wife – like the woman you call whom you’re already married to. Cue, jaws dropping.

He said, “I left my wife and child at home and I was straight out to In-N-Out burger. I’m just kidding.”

SORRY, WHAT. But, before everyone freaks out, this term is apparently very common in the U.K. People throw around the word to refer to their significant other or someone they’ve been dating for a very long time. It’s clear that that is what Liam is doing and wasn’t trying to hint at a secret marriage.

Regardless of when and IF he can really call Cheryl is wife for real, she will forever have an eye on Liam and is able to sway him in one of the most important decisions ever. She really does have him wrapped around her finger!
