So far, fans have only been given a glimpse of baby Bear Payne, Cheryl and Liam Payne's seven-week-old son. But proud dad Liam gave an indication of what the little boy looks like during a meet and greet with fans in Chicago this week. Speaking at a small gathering during a visit to B96 Radio, the 23-year-old opened up about little Bear’s features, and revealed how the couple came to choose his unusual name. Posting on Twitter following the event, one excited fan relayed some of Liam's responses. "Omg, I just met Liam!!!!," she tweeted. "Liam also said Bear was a mini version of him with Cheryl's eyes."
