Liam Payne posed with fans and looked at ease in London on Tuesday. The new dad, who welcomed his baby son with Cheryl back in March, was spotted at Kiss FM when he stopped to take time to chat to some fans. Dressed in an oversized black hoody with red and white detailing, Liam was seen out and about just a few hours after it was revealed that he and Cheryl had named their baby boy Bear Payne.

Liam was all smiles as he met fans

The Sun's Bizarre column announced the exciting news about the baby's name. A source told the newspaper: "Cheryl and Liam wanted to get to know their baby before deciding on a name. They spent over a week getting to know him first before deciding. They wanted to get to know him before they decided on the name. 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."

The couple have only shared one photo of their baby boy so far for the birth announcement. Sharing a snap of Liam snuggling little Bear, Cheryl wrote: "On Wednesday 22nd March Liam and I became parents to an incredibly beautiful, healthy baby boy, weighing 7lb 9 and 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. Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers around the world. A day that now has a different meaning to me forever." Liam added: "My close friends and family know there are very few times when I'm left speechless... wow! I'm incredibly happy to welcome our new baby boy into the world, it's a moment that I will never forget for the rest of my life and my favourite memory I have so far."
