Liam Payne shares heartwarming story about baby Bear reducing him to tears

New dad Liam Payne has shared the most adorable story with a French magazine about his baby son Bear.

During an interview with news site Melty, the former One Direction star was asked when the last time he cried was – and his answer will resonate with new parents all over the world.

‘When my son learnt to blow raspberries, he would copy you, it was so funny, it’s hilarious!’ he said.

‘I was crying with laughter in the end, it was just so funny because he kept just going “brrrrr”,’ he explained. ‘When he couldn’t do it he was like, I really wanna do it but I can’t remember what that noise was, it’s so funny to watch!’

Liam and girlfriend Cheryl welcomed baby Bear back in March, and since then he’s been very vocal about life as a new dad.

He’s told us all about how Bear got his unusual name; he’s let us know just how big his son his by explaining he gets a sore back when he carries him; and he’s even revealed that Bear loves singing and being sung to, so he’s hoping he’ll follow in his superstar parents’ footsteps.

Oh, and there’s the little matter of letting slip that he wants more babies

Cheryl, meanwhile, has kept pretty quiet since the little one’s arrival – and throughout her pregnancy – first returning to social media back in August to reveal she was back shooting for her ongoing campaigns with L’Oreal. Earlier this month, she gave her first TV interview since becoming a mum on This Morning.

Speculation about why Cheryl had remained out of the spotlight since the birth circulated after some critics accused her of adopting a strict regime to lose her baby weight before returning to the public eye – a rumour which she later slammed on Twitter as ‘completely made up.’

However, despite their differing approaches to their own level of media attention, the couple agree on keeping their son’s life private.

‘We’ve only shown him in glimpses,’ Liam previously explained to The Telegraph magazine.

‘We dont want him to have the pressure that me and Cheryl have, as household names. We want him to enjoy himself first and then figure it out.’
