Cheryl has admitted she feared that her son with Liam Payne, Bear, would be swapped with another baby in the hospital after he was born.
In a new interview, the singer opened up about her child – who arrived back in 2017 – recalling her worries after Bear was born.
“When I had him, first of all I wouldn’t let the doctors take him out of the room,” she explained on RuPaul and Michelle Visage’s podcast What’s The Tee?.
“I’d read this story about two girls being swapped at birth and it was playing on my mind. I was so irrational… I didn’t want anyone to take him.”
Meanwhile, earlier this year Cheryl opened up about her split from Liam in 2018, explaining that they still enjoy a “healthy, good relationship”.
“Things are great. I’m actually really happy that we can be the way we are,” she said. “We love and care about each other a lot and we share a child. It’s really important that we’re able to have a very healthy good relationship.
“We’re going to be in each other’s lives forever so we’ve got to figure it out and be grown-up about it.”
