After spending a week getting to know their baby boy, Liam Payne and Cheryl were ready to decide on a name.
According to a source quoted by The Sun, Liam and Cheryl decided on the name Bear several days after the child's birth. The boy will also be taking his father's surname.
"They spent over a week getting to know him first before deciding..." the source said. "They didn't have the name Bear before the birth."
"But they'd been thinking of a name since meeting him and they just felt it suited him."
On Wednesday 22nd March Liam and I became parents to an incredibly beautiful, healthy baby boy, weighing 7lb 9 and looking like a dream. Although he still doesn't have a name he is already stealing hearts. We are all madly in love and overwhelmingly happy with our little arrival. Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers around the world. A day that now has a different meaning to me forever ?
Bear is a fairy common name in the celebrity world. Both Kate Winslet and Alicia Silverstone named their sons Bear.
