Harry then added: "I spoke to Liam and he's loving it. He said it's going really well and everyone's great. So I'm very happy for him." Cheryl, 33, and Liam, 23, announced the arrival of their son on Saturday 25 March – just one day ahead of Mother's Day. Both took to Instagram to share their happy news, with Liam also taking the time to praise new mum Cheryl. He wrote: "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.

"I'm completely in awe of his incredible mother and how she has been the whole way through this, she's really made my dreams come true. We haven't named him yet but he's already capturing hearts including mine. I feel very blessed. Happy Mother's Day everyone!"

Harry, meanwhile, has been hard at work on his debut solo album – and is soon set to release the music video for his single Sign of the Times. The musician revealed he has had mixed reviews from his family. "I had one piece of feedback from my stepdad. One of the songs on the album has a vocal effect in the background. And it finished and he went, 'How did you get a duck into the studio?' My mum cried a couple of times, which was good. I think that was good?!"
