He told his fans that he had to let Cheryl pick the little one’s name as she had done all the hard work! Liam is certainly trained well.

But now, the 23-year-old has shared their son’s full name. Chatting to his fans in Boston, he said that his son’s middle name is Grey!

His die-hard fans couldn’t wait to update Twitter on the news.

One girl said that everybody was teasing him about who should win father of the year award between him and Louis Tomlinson, to which he replied: “I haven’t had enough time [yet]!”

He also confirmed that the the eye on his arm was Cheryl’s eye – as everybody had expected.

Adding: “But sometimes it feels like she’s always watching.”

Opening up about Bear’s name, he told Total Access that he let Cheryl pick it and that when he looks at him now, it just suits him.

The singer said: “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.”

“At first I wasn’t really having it. I was like, ‘I’m not really sure. I don’t really understand’,” he explained.

“Now I look at him and he’s Bear. You become your name as you get older anyway.”
