Cheryl and Liam have apparently FINALLY settled on a name for their six-week-old baby boy

After their little bundle of joy arrived around six weeks ago, the entire WORLD has been wondering about what Cheryl and Liam Payne will call their newborn baby boy.

Ok, so we're slightly exaggerating a little bit.

But here in the Closer office, we have been considering what has felt like every single baby boy name to try and guess what the couple might call their baby boy.

We were thinking they'd go for something more traditional, maybe something along the lines of Taylor or Alfie like they've previously spoken about.

And fans thought they'd discovered the baby's name the other day.

But we could NOT have been more wrong.

Chez and Liam have gone down the more off-the-wall, celebrity sort of name.

No wait, we need more of a build up.

Drum roll please...

Cheryl and Liam have called their baby... BEAR!

Yep, according to The Sun, a source close to the couple confirmed the baby's name.

They said: "Liam and Cheryl couldn't decide on a name for ages and kept to-ing and fro-ing 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."
