Liam Payne has shared a touching tribute to his baby son Bear, five-months, as he celebrates his 24 birthday.
The star, girlfriend Cheryl and their little boy jetted off on holiday recently to celebrate the milestone.
Liam, 24, shared a snap of Bear’s teeny tiny hand on top of his alongside a super-sweet message.
He simply captioned the post: “Best birthday ever 🐻💙.”
The photo, showing the star spending some precious time with his son, has already racked up over 200K likes in under an hour.
Fans rushed to comment on the rare snap of Bear with one saying: “Omg this is so cute😍.”
“The level of cuteness is killing me,” another added.
A third wrote: “Happy birthday, that little hand is so adorable!”
The family headed abroad this month for their first holiday altogether since the birth of Bear.
In the first of many snaps, Chezza, 34, posted a black and white selfie of her and her beau on a boat trip.
Showing off her pearly whites and cuddling up to the singer the new mum looked happier than ever.
In another the star showed off her incredible post-baby bod while soaking up the sun on the boat.
Cheryl showcased her rippling abs in a burnt orange bikini and matching cover-up.
In other photos the lovebirds cuddled up to each other.
In one Liam’s abs made an appearance as he stroked Cheryl’s windswept hair.
In another the pair appeared to be enjoying their trip away as Liam smiled for the camera while Cheryl showed off her best pout.
We haven’t yet seen little Bear’s face but former One Direction star Liam has teased fans with updates on how fast his son is growing up.
Last month the first-time dad revealed that the tot is growing up super quickly and is now imitating him.
Talking to French music channel Just Music, he said: “I discover him every day and I see his eyes brighten when I talk to him.
“He always looks at me with great attention and he often tries to imitate me by moving his mouth.”
Earlier in the year Cheryl’s baby daddy opened up about how fatherhood has changed him.
He said: “I’m happy to be a dad, it’s an incredible thing. I give my son as much love as I have received from my parents.
“I also have an incredible girlfriend, she’s a great mum and I could not have been happier to have her as the mother of my child.”
Back in May he also told The Kyle and Jackie O Show: “The moment that little boy or girl looks in your eyes your life is changed forever.
“When he was first born… I had never even changed a nappy. I never had any younger siblings or people to change nappies on.
“It’s not something I would partake as a hobby… I don’t know if I’m speaking on behalf of other dads but you work on your feet because you have to it’s your responsibility.”
Meanwhile Cheryl has recently got back to work and has been spotted out and about since the birth of Bear.
The former Girls Aloud singer posed with fans outside the US Embassy in London earlier this month.
The new mum looked flawless as she smiled for a quick selfie with Miss Great Britain Ursula Carlton.
Cheryl showed off her pearly whites as she hid behind her huge dark sunglasses.
Ursula wrote alongside the photo: “Met this lovely lady this morning, the beautiful Cheryl. #missgb #wishiworemakeuptoday #missgbandcherylcole.”
Fans, who are desperate to get a glance at the star, rushed to comment on the snap.
One said: “You’re so lucky! Thanks for the pic we haven’t seen her in ages.”
