The 1D star is currently touring in America as he promotes his new music. Earlier this week, during a chat with The Sun's Dan Wootton, Liam opened up about his relationship with Cheryl, with whom he welcomed his first child, baby Bear, this year. When asked whether any of his new songs were inspired by Cheryl, he replied: "They are 100% are. There is one song about a phone call that happened between me and her and she was about to say go - this was ages ago, and it's basically me trying to cling on saying no, it's going to work out, don't worry about it give it time." He quickly added: "It's a very fun song though, it's incapturing - is that a word?"
