Liam Payne reveals baby Bear is struggling to take his first steps because of his size

Liam Payne has revealed that his son with partner Cheryl is growing fast – and finding learning to walk ‘frustrating’ as a result!

The former One Direction band member opened up about his rapidly growing son when talking to Popbuzz, confessing that he can’t believe the speed at which baby Bear is changing.

‘He’s massive now… where’s my baby gone?’ Liam quipped. ‘Everyone comes over and is like: ‘Your child’s massive.’’

The father-of-one then went on to admit that because of Bear’s size, his son is struggling to take his first few steps and learn to walk.

‘He’s not walking because when kids are bigger they struggle to get their core balance quicker’ Liam explained. ‘He’s so tall he’s like lanky and he gets really frustrated.’

‘I don’t know what we feed him’ Liam joked referring to his baby son’s size. ‘I don’t know what she’s doing’ Liam then added, referring to his partner, singer and TV star Cheryl, who takes responsibility of looking after their son while Liam goes off on tour to promote his music.

‘It’s hard being away… time differences with babies – it’s really hard on them,’ Liam previously confessed, when speaks about the struggle of leaving Cheryl and Bear behind while he goes off on tour.

However the 24-year-old has also admitted that he’s come to terms with the fact that he’ll have to ‘miss out’ on milestones in son’s life due to his career, and is willing to do so in order to build a bright future for Bear.

‘Unfortunately, it’s a risk that I will miss out on certain things,’ Liam previously revealed. ‘I am aware of that, but it’s important for me that I carry on and make this right for him.’

Despite his son growing so rapidly, and the passing on his first birthday last month, Liam also revealed recently that his son’s birth is still a very fresh and vivid memory in his mind.

‘Seeing the birth of your child is the most proud moment you can ever have’ he said.

‘It was insane, but you can just remember every minute of it. There’s a lot of things that are kind of blurry but that one’s like straight in there.’
