Liam has confirmed via Twitter that his son's name, who has been a mystery since his birth in March up until now, is officially Bear Payne. SAY WHAT?!
A report from the Daily Mail was released today revealing the child's name, saying that after being undecided for quite some time, Liam and Cheryl Cole had finally decided on a name for their first son.
"Liam and Cheryl couldn’t decide on a name for ages and kept toing and froing between options. But they both loved Bear and settled on it a few days ago. Despite the sleepless nights, the couple are completely smitten with little Bear," a friend of the couple revealed to the newspaper.
How exciting! Liam confirmed the news after he liked a tweet by TV host of adventures shows Bear Grylls who sent the couple a message congratulating them and complimenting the name choice, "Great choice! Love & blessings to you guys as you start on the greatest adventure... @CherylOfficial @LiamPayne"
He then replied saying, "Thanks man hope he grows with an ounce of your courage! [Your] a boss."
Ahh, BEAR Payne! What a wild name. When the baby was born five weeks ago, Liam said they had not chosen a name but that he was already stealing hearts. He wrote on Instagram: "We haven't named him yet but he's already capturing hearts including mine. I feel very blessed."
Now that the couple has settled on a name, all fans can hope for is an official meeting of baby Freddie Tomlinson and Bear Payne so they can begin to be the most iconic baby duo the world has seen. We can't wait!
