The Reason Liam Payne’s Son Is Called ‘Bear’ Is SO Adorable!


The Reason Liam Payne’s Son Is Called ‘Bear’ Is SO Adorable!

We were always going to love whatever name Liam Payne and Cheryl chose for their baby boy, but we were all a little taken aback when they called the cutie ‘Bear’. 

We’ve all been guessing as to why they chose the unconventional name, but now we finally have some answers!

Liam took to The Late Late Show, surrounded by James Corden and James Van Der Beek, and joked about why he didn’t call his baby ‘James’ when Corden started grilling him about it. 


"As you can see I'm surrounded by Jameses, so you can't really be the first James anymore, can you? It's not possible."

"So the only logical thing to do was to call him Bear.”

He then went into the reason why he and Cheryl chose the name Bear and we just LOVE the story behind it!

"When he was born, I think one of the midwives said it, he actually has this thing where if they don't have a good cry, they get fluid on their lungs which is quite serious.


"So he was going 'grrr', growling away when he was sleeping, so I had specialists running in and out of the hospital while my missus was asleep and he was being checked over, and they were like, 'Oh, I'm not really sure, we'll get someone else in'.

"And I had like, ten doctors coming in the room and in the end, one guy was like, 'Dude I'm not being funny, there's nothing wrong with him – just likes to make a lot of noise.

"So he just became Bear.”

Is their a cute story behind YOUR name?
