Liam and girlfriend Cheryl, 33, welcomed their son on 22 March, and the proud dad has been regularly sharing updates on his progress. Speaking earlier this month, he revealed that baby Bear was already in a sleeping pattern at just 11 weeks old. He said: "[Cheryl's] got him in a sleeping pattern already, we're getting seven hours of sleep a night. Everyone's saying have you not slept much and I don't want to say because I'm out partying."

Liam went on to describe parenthood as "the craziest thing ever", adding: "He's been a grump today. It's the first time he's looked at me and said, 'Daddy please help' and I didn't really know what to do. We had him in the bath, he was having a bit of pain but he's super chill." He continued: "It's been great being home because I'm back for bath time. It's great to spend time with my son and my missus."
