Cheryl has opened up about her battles with anxiety since giving birth to her son Bear a year ago. Speaking to Nick Grimshaw on his Radio 1 Breakfast Show on Friday morning, the mum-of-one revealed: "The worrying stuff kind of takes a sideline. You know what I used to be like for anxiety and stuff? I have been seeing somebody for about the past year to keep that anxiety in check." She added: "I don't want to feel stressed as a popstar, even. We're supposed to be living our best lives, aren't we?" Talking about motherhood, Cheryl continued: "I don't want the baby to feel that, and I don't want to feel stressed as a mam".

Cheryl and her ex-boyfriend Liam Payne welcomed baby Bear into the world in March 2017. The pair announced their split in July this year, after two-and-a-half years together. In a joint statement, they said: "It's been a tough decision for us to make. We still have so much love for each other as a family. Bear is our world and we ask that you respect his privacy as we navigate our way through this together." The 35-year-old has since said that Bear is the only important man in her life, explaining on the Table Manners podcast: I know what I want in life, but in the romantic area, I am not as evolved. That area has stopped. It's not happening anymore. It's the end."
