Liam Payne says it 'hurts' going weeks without seeing son Bear

Liam Payne struggles with going on tour and leaving behind his two-year-old son Bear.

The One Direction star is dad to son Bear, whom he shares with ex-girlfriend Cheryl, and he admits it can be difficult going for weeks without seeing the tot.

Liam opened up about juggling his singing career with fatherhood while stopping by The One Show on Friday.

The 26-year-old admitted: ‘Loads of random things happen with kids all the time. Like if he’s not very well, sometimes you miss dates and things. Then a couple of weeks go by, and I haven’t seen him in ages.’

Liam and Cheryl are notoriously private when it comes to their family life, but are known to share the rare shot of Bear to their social media pages.

The former couple confirmed their split in July 2018, just months after Bear’s first birthday, and Liam has since been opening up about why their relationship broke down.

Speaking on Jessie Ware’s Table Manners podcast, the Strip That Down hit-maker claims Cheryl was so worried about the public scrutiny over their romance, that it put ‘so much pressure’ on their relationship.

He said: ‘I think we kind of rubbed off on each other a little bit in that way. In a bad way, actually.

‘And it was neither of our faults because we have both been through so many circumstances but all of that stuff puts so much pressure on a relationship.

‘Say going out for a dinner or whatever it is, whereas now my whole new thing is that I don’t give a s**t, it’s not worth sacrificing my happiness and it’s been far too long of different relationships that that’s come between me [and them].’

Liam has since moved on with new girlfriend Maya Henry.

Crediting the 19-year-old model for bringing out the best in him, Liam shared a snap of himself and Maya smiling together and said: ‘Sometimes I don’t recognise this happy guy… sure glad you brought him back though.’
