We at heat are literally obsessed with Liam Payne and Cheryl’s relationship (we’re a bit weird), and get ridiculously excited when we hear either has been discussing their lil babba family life (it’s usually Liam, tbh).

Liam previously admitted that it was Cheryl’s decision to call their baby Bear, telling The Sun: “I’m into more traditional names, the Mrs... she’s more into more unique, original names that people will remember.

“It was her choice. I wasn’t going to fight her about it, she’s the one who’s done all the work, isn’t she?

And he’s now revealed the reason why she chose the unusual (but super cute) name.

Speaking on a US radio show, he said: “The reason she chose Bear in the end was because Bear is a name that when you leave a room you won’t forget. And I like that. When I look at him he is Bear.

“To be honest at first I wasn’t having it, I didn’t understand it and I wasn’t sure. Now I look at him and he is Bear. It’s mad.”

So bloody cute.
