Cheryl Cole and Liam Payne had recently welcomed their first child together. The couple have reportedly named their son, Bear.

A source told Daily Mail: "Liam and Cheryl couldn't decide on a name for ages and kept toing and froing between options."

"But they both loved Bear and settled on it a few days ago. Despite the sleepless nights, the couple are completely smitten with little Bear," the insider added.

The couple had revealed the baby news on their Instagram accounts. Cheryl shared a picture of the former One Direction singer with the baby, and wrote: "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."

Liam shared the same image, and stated: "My close friends and family know there are very few times when I'm left speechless... wow! I'm incredibly happy to welcome our new baby boy into the world, it's a moment that I will never forget for the rest of my life and my favourite memory I have so far."

"I'm completely in awe of his incredible mother and how she has been the whole way through this, she's really made my dreams come true. We haven't named him yet but he's already capturing hearts including mine. I feel very blessed. Happy Mother's Day everyone!" he concluded.
