Here in the heatworld office there's been much discussion over Cheryl and Liam Payne's baby name; Bear Grey Payne. We know there's an imminent general election and all that malarkey, but at this point in time it's our main concern.

IT'S OUR JOB TO CARE, OKAY? Does that justify it?

Anyway, whether you love or hate the name you can't deny it's bloody adorable. But now - after Liam admitted it was very much Cheryl's choice - he's revealed what he'd have called Bear.

Oh hey, Arthur Payne.

Chatting to our pals over at Kiss FM, Liam said: "[Cheryl] wanted a very interesting name, when he leaves a room people wouldn't forget it. Which I think is it definitely does that. I actually wanted, Arthur. I think you sound like a bit of a tank -...Arthur Payne. He's not a guy you'd mess around with. I don't think Bear is, either though."

So how are these night feeds going, eh Payno? "At this stage as a dad, you're in a bit of a whirlwind," he admitted. "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. She knows that I'm going on tour, so obviously she's got a lot to deal with. Which is hard. I thought that I'd get the call saying, we need a nanny for this, but no, she's doing everything. She's really pushing herself with it, bless her.

"We did a rota over the night feeds, and then she was like, I want to do...because she used to wake up anyway. She said there's no point in us both being tired and there's gonna be points in the day when I need you to be on it, so I need you awake.

"As a man, night feeds are kind of pointless at times, because, you as a woman you're so connected to a baby, it's something that a man just does not have. You have that super power as a woman, where you are, you know, your heartbeats are in even in sync."

Fair enough.

Liam also revealed what Bear looks like, adding: "He had a lot of hair. Which they say is heartburn in pregnancy, which she got a lot of heartburn. He has, my nose and my face. The lips are, nobody really knows, but he's definitely got her eyes."
