Why Liam Payne wasn’t convinced by Cheryl’s baby name choice

The One Direction star reveals the kind of names he would've liked...


The world was dying to find out what Cheryl and Liam Payne had called their newborn son.


And we weren’t too surprised when the popstar couple revealed they’d gone for a suitably slebby moniker: Bear Payne ?

We even fell in love with Cheryl’s (alleged) nickname for her little boy, Cub ?

But it seems the unusual name wouldn’t have been dad Liam’s first choice…

He told The Sun: “I’m into more traditional names. The Mrs, she’s more into more unique, original names that people will remember.”

So, it’s pretty clear who won that battle…

“It was her choice,” Liam added. “I wasn’t going to fight her about it, she’s the one who’s done all the work, isn’t she?”

Haha, we like the way he thinks ?

Mind, we reckon there’ll be a fair few couples out there who found themselves in a similar sitch to Cheryl and Liam.

Sometimes, one partner just really gets their heart set on that one special name, and has to do a little bit of convincing to ‘get their way’.

Or perhaps one person’s just a bit more laidback about the whole naming thing.

Does it even really matter how it’s chosen, or who chose it, as long as you both agree and are happy with the choice in the end?

We really do hope that Liam has grown to love his son’s name ?

On a quick side note: celeb mum-of-2 Billie Faiers found herself in at the exact opposite situation to Cheryl when it came to naming her son, Arthur.

Instead of having time to choose, her fiance (and her toddler) basically ganged up on her ?
