Liam Payne wanted to name his son Arthur

Liam Payne's been treating us all to an insight into his life as a new dad to baby Bear, his relationship with Cheryl and his upcoming solo debut.

The former One Direction singer and his 33-year-old girlfriend Cheryl welcomed their baby boy Bear Grey Payne into the world nearly two months ago, and taking over a month to reveal his moniker to the public, the hunk says he had originally picked out a more traditional name. Liam Payne has admitted his first choice of moniker for his son Bear was Arthur, because he believed it was a tough name.

In a new interview to promote his single Strip That Down, he revealed that the Promise This singer had fallen out with Simon for dismissing her act and didn't stand up to clap to get back at him. I'll be honest with you, she's doing it all herself at the moment because she wants to know what it feels like when I'm not there. "I wasn't going to fight her about it, she's the one who's done all the work, isn't she?"

Payne may even have let more slip than he bargained for during a recent interview with Sirius XM radio in the USA, as seemingly accidentally revealed that he and Cheryl are secretly married after referring to her as his "wife".

These fans will be happy to know that on Wednesday the ninth Star Wars movie-release date was announced for May 24, 2019. A tense argument between the pair is then thought to take place, setting up a major conflict early on in the film.

He said when asked about Bear's unusual name: "I'm into more traditional names, the Mrs ... she's more into more unique, original names that people will remember". To help cope with night feeds, Liam and Cheryl came up with a rota, but the singer revealed it didn't last very long. I think you sound like a bit of a tank - Arthur Payne. She's really pushing herself with it, bless her.

Speaking on heat radio, he said: "I got a standing ovation from everyone except for Cheryl, which I thought was hilarious".

He added, "At first I wasn't really having it".

"She knows that I'm going on tour, so obviously she's got a lot to deal with, which is hard".
