Here's what Liam Payne originally wanted his son's name to be

Here's what Liam Payne originally wanted his son's name to be

Liam Payne is announcing a solo tour and revealing the sweet thing he did for his son.

The 23-year-old singer became a first-time father when his 33-year-old partner gave birth to a boy on 22 March (17).

He told United Kingdom radio station KISS FM on Wednesday (17.05.17): "I actually wanted Arthur".

When a fan wrote that if she does not request Payne to strip down, they will, she playfully responded, once again using the smirking emoji: "I'm sure you would". He's not a guy you'd mess around with. "I think those two have a deal" with the stroking chin emoji.

Way back when he was just a teenager and Chezza was still a WAG going by the name of Cheryl Cole, Liam auditioned as a solo artist on The X Factor and wowed the judges with his rendition of Michael Bublé's Cry Me A River.

It isn't the first time Liam has spoken about wanting his son to have a traditional name either, as he previously said he let the former Girls Aloud singer pick out their tot's "unusual" moniker because it would be more memorable to people.

"It was like an internal battle", Liam explained.

Liam said they agreed a rota for night feeds but Cheryl insisted she wanted to do most of the work. And the reason she chose Bear in the end was because Bear is a name that when you leave a room, you won't forget. And I like that. "We haven't really fit it with any song yet but, I mean, there's a chance of it". I don't really understand'. One of the hosts then joked the singer had actually relocated to California just so he could be near the popular eatery, prompting him to quip, "Yeah, exactly".

"Liam also said Bear was a mini version of him with Cheryl's eyes".

Becoming parents has drastically changed both Liam and Cheryl's lives, with the 23-year-old singer admitting that one of the things he made a decision to change when he found out about the pregnancy was to get rid of his nicotine habit.
