Cheryl and Liam Payne have named their baby Bear, The Sun’s Bizarre column can reveal.
They decided on the unusual name after spending a week getting to know the tot.
“They didn’t have the name Bear before the birth.
“But they’d been thinking of a name since meeting him and they just felt it suited him.
“They love their little baby Bear Payne and are truly over the moon and loving being parents for the first time together.”
Cheryl, 33, has made only one public comment about their baby, three days after giving birth to the 7lb 9oz tot.
She said: “Liam and I became parents to an incredibly beautiful, healthy baby boy looking like a dream.
“Although he still doesn’t have a name he is already stealing hearts.
“We are all madly in love and overwhelmingly happy with our little arrival.”
The former X Factor judge and Girls Aloud star gave birth at London’s Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and Liam didn’t leave Cheryl’s side throughout the birth.
Liam, 23, broke his silence three days after the birth, on Mother’s Day, saying he felt “very blessed” by the arrival of their first child.
He said: “My close friends and family know there are very few times when I’m left speechless... wow!
“It’s a moment that I will never forget for the rest of my life and my favourite memory I have so far.
“I’m completely in awe of his incredible mother and how she has been the whole way through this, she’s really made my dreams come true. I feel very blessed.”
The couple first met in 2009 when a young wannabe popstar Liam auditioned for her on The X Factor.
He then went onto mega stardom thanks to his time in One Direction.
