Speaking at Capital FM’s Summertime Ball in London on Saturday, the 23-year-old opened up about his family life. In an interview with the Mail Online, Liam revealed that his son, now three months old, has learnt how to laugh this weekend! Liam said: “'So he giggled for the first time and me and Cheryl went "ah". It's literally the best thing ever. We don't take a lot of photos so we've started getting into taking a lot of photos and things. It's great.”
The singer told the website that little Bear laughed when he sang for him. Liam, who has just released his debut solo single Strip That Down, explained that he likes to practice his performances at his home gym and he values advice from girlfriend Cheryl on his dance moves. He called her “an amazing performer”.
