Liam Payne and girlfriend Cheryl welcomed their first son, Bear, back in March this year, and now proud dad Liam has shared the first ever video of the tot.
The couple have largely have remained private about the little one on social media ever since his birth, but now the 24-year-old dad has delighted fans by sharing a super sweet audio clip of son Bear giggling as he blows raspberries at him, on his Instagram Stories.
It was clear that the former One Direction band member, who shares his son with Cheryl, is every inch the doting dad, as he shared the clip of Bear laughing as his funny noises while still keeping the tot’s privacy with a clever Bear emoji.
Sadly, Instagram Stories disappear after 24 hours, so fans only have a couple of hours left if they want to hear the sound for themselves.
Liam and Cheryl first met in 2008 on The X Factor, when Cheryl was a judge on the show and Liam was auditioning at 14-years old.
The teen sang Frank Sinatra’s Fly Me To The Moon, and gave Cheryl a wink at the end of his performance. At the time, Cheryl called him ‘cute’ and gave him a ‘yes!’ to send the youngster through to the next round.
Eight years later, the pair confirmed their romance in February 2016, and welcomed their son on Mother’s Day the following year.
Wolverhampton native Liam has been very vocal about his experience with fatherhood so far, and spoke openly of his ‘miracle baby’ Bear at the Pride of Britain Awards.
Speaking to The Mirror, the singer admitted Bear has helped him become more in touch with his emotions.
He said: ‘People have been saying to me that as a dad now you develop different emotions… You can’t really pinpoint what it is but you definitely feel it more.
‘Bear is fantastic, he’s a little miracle baby, bless him, and he’s doing wonders, he’s amazing.’
When asked previously whether he would rather marry Cheryl or have another baby, Liam confessed he would be keen to expand his brood further – but was quick to affirm the pair were in no rush.
‘The options are definitely open for me on having another baby,’ he added. ‘Bear is the best creation I’ve ever made so I welcome the idea completely.’
