One Direction’s Liam Payne praises ex Cheryl for her parenting skills

Posted on in MUSIC VIDEOS

Liam Payne has taken a break from revealing juicy One Direction gossip to open up about his relationship with ex Cheryl and their son Bear.

Liam, who split from Cheryl back in 2018, spoke to British Vogue about the contents of his bag, revealing rather sweetly that if he could pop any person in it and carry them around, it would be his son.

Fortunately, though, Cheryl’s on hand to take care of Bear when Liam’s hand luggage is otherwise full.

“It’s hard missing him out on the road, working away as much as I do,” Liam admitted, before praising Cheryl’s “understanding” as a co-parent.

“His mum’s super understanding with me, she takes great care of him,” he continued. “I always know he’s really well looked after. It’s just the little moments you miss out on sometimes that I’d love to be there for more.”

While Cheryl is currently only mum to Bear, the Greatest Dancer captain recently revealed that she’s considering having more children through a sperm donor, as she feels time is no longer “on her side”.

“If time was on my side and I was in my 20s, yeah, I would wait and consider more options, or wait for somebody I felt was right,” she said, sharing her plans to look for a donor abroad.

“You could meet somebody and for that year it feels incredible, but there is never a guarantee because there are so many variables that can happen,” she added. “Life is a funny old game.”
