She's more into unique, original names that people will remember. "Quavo)" this Friday (May 19), admitted as much during a Total Access interview. The reason she chose Bear, in the end, is because Bear, when you leave a room, is a name that you won't forget. "And I like that".
"I did all the first day's worth of [diaper] changes, because [Cheryl] was so exhausted, she slept more or less", he said. I was like, "I'm not really sure, I don't really understand".
But the musician has since changed his mind and believes his son has grown into his name as the weeks have gone on.
Despite the couple sharing no photos of their son, Liam told a fan in America last week that Bear was a "mini him" with "Cheryl's eyes".
And the singer is getting his head around the name.
However, it's arguable that nobody has been quite as busy as a certain Liam Payne, who's managed to become a father to son Bear, whip up some new music and stay winning at his relationship with Cheryl. A choreographer has been coming to Liam's house in Surrey and teaching him some steps, and if he's struggling to pick them up, Cheryl will come out and show him how it's done.
Liam also reportedly explained to the fans that his latest inking, an eye on his left arm, is a copy of Cheryl's eye, because "sometimes it feels like she's always watching".
"She is a wonderful, wonderful person and it's fantastic to have someone who can relate to so much of things - someone who's taken greater steps than me", Payne told U.K.'s Rollacoaster magazine in March of Cheryl.
The rapper flows with ("Move that down girl / Love when you hit the ground girl") in the teaser clip Payne posted.
Liam is now promoting his debut solo track Strip That Down, due to be released on May 19.
