This Is The Very Unusual Name Of Cheryl And Liam Payne's Son
Having kept silent throughout both pregnancy and birth, it's said that Cheryl and Liam wanted to take their time about committing to a name to avoid selecting something they might regret.
Revealing that it took them a week to come to a decision, a source told The Sun: “Cheryl and Liam wanted to get to know their baby before deciding on a name. They spent over a week getting to know him first before deciding.
Even so, Bear was something of a wildcard in their shortlist: “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.
"They love their little baby Bear Payne and are truly over the moon and loving being parents for the first time together.”
The internet has naturally had a mixed reaction to the name, with some fans loving it and others cracking all kinds of jokes about Chez being in bear pain during her contractions.
Oh, it's all too easy, isn't it?
Still, we think it's a pretty adorable choice. Let us know your thoughts on Bear Payne with a tweet @MTVUK.
