It turns out Liam Payne and Cheryl weren’t entirely on the same page when it came to naming their newborn!

In case you missed it, the couple welcomed a baby boy in March, but couldn’t decide on a name for their first born right away. Eventually, they settled on Bear.

Speaking to Total Access in an interview airing Friday, the solo singer spilled how Cheryl was the one behind the aww-dorable moniker:

“It was like an internal battle. I wanted a more traditional name and she wanted a name that was more unusual. And 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.”

He’s not wrong!

The former One Direction star continued:

“When I look at him, he’s just Bear. At first I wasn’t really having it. I was like, ‘I’m not really sure. I don’t really understand.’ Now I look at him and he’s Bear. You become your name as you get older anyway.”


It’s also said Liam and Cheryl chose a perfect middle name to go with Bear: Grey!

Talking to a group of 1D fans in Boston this week, the 23-year-old apparently dished some sweet deets about his and Cheryl’s little bundle, including their “Cub” nickname for him.
