Cheryl admits she HATED being pregnant with baby son Bear

The former X Factor judge gave birth to her first child in March

She welcomed a bouncing baby boy with One Direction star boyfriend Liam Payne in March.

And while Cheryl, 34, is absolutely loving being a mum to son Bear, seven months, she’s confessed she “hated” the whole being pregnant part.

In a candid new interview with The Sun, she said: “I hated being pregnant. A lot of stuff went on and I just didn’t enjoy it.”

Cheryl chose not to elaborate on why she hated pregnancy – or why she chose to lock herself away from the world during the entire period.

She’s only just returned to the spotlight with a new L’Oreal campaign and a guest role alongside Simon Cowell at his X Factor Judges’ Houses, to be aired this weekend.

Despite not enjoying her pregnancy, the Girls Aloud star said motherhood has been an absolute dream and she wouldn’t change it for the world.

“It changes your life completely but in the most amazing way,” she said.

“But I’ve had the best six months of my life. Really.”

She also said she’s glad she took such a lengthy break from work and being in the public eye while pregnant and after giving birth.

“It’s been actually over a year but it’s been perfect for me because it’s reset the mind-frame,” she said.

“And I feel actually better coming back. I feel more relaxed, I just feel I’ve sat into my own skin.

“I feel so good.”

However, just because Cheryl has flown to France to help Simon at Judges’ Houses doesn’t mean she’s ready to return to her hectic lifestyle as a popstar.

During an interview on ITV’s Lorraine on Friday morning, she said: “I’ve got the luxury of being able to spend time with my newborn child and I think I’m going to take that.

“A lot of mothers have to rush back to work, which I don’t think is really fair, so I’m going to take more time. A few more months until he’s a little bit grown.”

Cheryl’s relationship with Liam has been worlds away from past romances: her first marriage to footballer Ashley Cole was highly publicised and the wedding pictures featured in a glossy magazine.

She went on to marry French entrepreneur Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini in a secret wedding just months after they met, before splitting less than two years later.

With Liam, she kept the relationship secret for quite some time before it reached the public eye and they’ve rarely walked the red carpet together.

Of course, there have been the inevitable rumours of Liam getting down on one knee any day now – especially after he called Cheryl his “missus” in a recent interview.

But he later clarified to The Sun: “I see marriage as more of a religious thing and I’m not really a religious person, so I know it’s not really on the cards for me at the moment.

“So no not yet. We have a baby together — you know our love for each other can’t be more serious so it is what it is I guess.”

While the couple have only been photographed together on a handful of occasions and rarely cuddle up for social media selfies, Liam has no problems with gushing about his missus in interviews!

The excited star has spent the last few months promoting his solo career – and spilling the beans on just how amazing Cheryl is.

Liam recently told TMZ: “She’s really great, she’s the best mum in the world!”

Aww!
