Liam's fellow band member Niall Horan was among those to wish the new dad a happy birthday, and tweeted him: "Happy birthday mate. Miss ya bud , see ya soon," to which Liam responded: " Thanks man. Love to you and yours." Liam is currently enjoying spending some quality time with his partner, Cheryl, and their son. The pair have taken to social media to share snaps of their holiday with their followers. In one snap, the couple looked loved up while taking a selfie together. Liam and Cheryl became parents for the first time back in March, and have kept photos of their baby son off social media. Cheryl has kept a relatively low-profile, and only recently revealed she was planning on returning to work. Sharing a snap of herself at a L'Oreal photoshoot, she wrote: "Back at it," with a winking face emoji.
