Liam Payne may have just divulged that he and baby mama Cheryl secretly tied the knot – with the singer calling her his “wife” during a radio interview!

The 23-year-old singer was joking that he had come to LA just to snack on his favourite burger chain, when he let the incriminating evidence slip!

“I left my wife and child at home and I was straight out to In-N-Out Burger,” he joked during the chat.

Liam and Cheryl stepped out together only a handful of times in the months leading up to Bear’s birth.

The One Direction star became a first-time father in March, and recently revealed that he’s “jumped right into” being a dad.

“I did all the first days’ worth of nappy changes, because [Cheryl] was so tired, she slept more or less,” he said of his first few days of fatherhood.

“All day, there was no poo. I was like this is great, I can handle this.”


However, Liam recalls, when it was Cheryl’s turn on diaper duty, she wasn’t as lucky.

“I was like go on babes, this was her first ever nappy change. So he poos for the first time, of course he does,” he shared.

“Secondly, sprouts off [starts weeing]. I’m looking at him thinking this didn’t happen to me all day. That’s so unfair. She had to give birth to him and she was the one who got weed on first.”


During the interview, Liam also confirmed his baby boy’s full-name, Bear Grey Payne, revealing he wasn’t a fan of the unusual moniker when Cheryl first suggested it.

“It was like an internal battle. I wanted a more traditional name and she wanted a name that was more unusual,” he confessed.

“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.”

“It was her choice. I wasn’t going to fight her about it, she’s the one who’s done all the work, isn’t she?”

And now the former boy-band member can’t imagine any other name for his little man.

“When I look at him, he’s just Bear. Now I look at him and he’s Bear,” he said. “You become your name as you get older anyway.”
