They might be super private about their lives together, but Cheryl and Liam Payne have not been afraid to tell the world that they are happily in love and enjoying their lives as new parents. As well as besotted posts about baby Bear, Liam has also been gushing about his young son in interviews whilst promoting his new solo single.

Although the stars have denied that they will be getting married any time soon, there’s no doubt they are head over heels for one another. Now, Cheryl has shared a sweet message for Liam on his very first Father’s Day.

Cheryl's sweet message

Cheryl’s sweet message is…

To mark Liam’s first Father’s Day Cheryl posted this sweet message on Instagram. She said: “Happy 1st Father’s Day Liam.. You are the most amazing daddy and the best example for our son.”

She added: “The way he looks at you says it all. Your relationship melts my heart. You are the centre of his world & We adore you.”

Sadly, Liam has had to spend his first Father’s Day away from his new young family as he had work commitments. The singer is busy launching his solo career and had to fly to Milan from America.

Liam posted a snap on his Instagram story as a tribute to his son, it was captioned: “Miss you Bear”.

The singer also posted: “Happy Father’s Day Dad and to all dads… thanks for the messages guys!!!”

Liam has spoken openly about his love for baby Bear and his girlfriend Cheryl Tweedy. The two started dating in 2016 and Cheryl gave birth to Bear on 22 March. The pair actually first met back in 2009 when Liam auditioned for the X Factor and Cheryl was a judge on the talent show.

The new father adores his little boy and has said he enjoys bath time the most and that he cannot wait for Bear to start walking and talking. He has already admitted that baby number two could be on the cards soon.

Liam also recently revealed that he wants to get a huge chest tattoo as a tribute to his greatest success – becoming a dad. He hasn’t revealed any details of the design yet but we can expect to see a pic as soon as he decides!

He said: “I haven’t got anything yet but I’ll make it a surprise.. I’ve got to do my chest next, which is going to really hurt.”

Cheryl and Liam already have semi-matching tattoos. Liam got a rose tattooed on his hand to go with Cheryl’s huge rose montage on her rear,
