Cheryl gave birth to baby Bear earlier this year, and devoted boyfriend Liam Payne made sure to pay tribute to her, along with his own mother, Karen, on International Mother’s Day on Sunday. The talented singer took to Instagram to post a heartwarming message, writing: "Happy Mother's Day America and to my two very special ladies mum and Cheryl I love you both very much."
Liam is no doubt missing the two main ladies in his life, along with his seven-week-old son, while he tours America promoting his debut solo single Strip That Down, which is set to be released on May 19.

Cheryl, who gave birth to Bear on 22 March, has kept a low profile since the arrival of her son, while fans have so far only caught a glimpse of the little boy in a sweet photograph of Liam cradling the newborn on social media to announce his safe arrival into the world. But last week, the former One Direction star gave fans 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."
Proud dad Liam also disclosed that he sometimes calls the new arrival 'Cub' while meeting fans in Chicago for a Q&A last week. Members of the public took to Twitter to share snippets of the conversation from backstage at B96 Radio Station on Wednesday. One wrote: "Here's my experience with Liam Payne… He doesn't remember what he last googled, he uses Air Pods and often gets mistaken for talking to himself. He loves In & Out Burger and Red Bull…"
She later wrote: "He made a human! His exact words: I made a human. I helped. She did the most **insert noise** only mothers would understand. He pointed to a mum, made the noise and said, 'You understand.'" Another fan added: "He said his proudest moment was Bear and said at first he called him Cub a lot."
