Niall Horan has opened up about his band mate Liam Payne's baby son, Bear, admitting that he is struggling to arrange a time to see the newborn due to his work schedule. The singer, who recently released his new solo single Slow Hands, told The Sun: "I actually text Liam the other day. I was going to see him last Friday, then he's in America, then when I leave this week he comes back here and I just keep missing him. I go away to do some promo and when I get back, [seeing the baby] is probably the first thing I'll do when I get back."
