Err, Liam we think it's about time you let it go

Over the past year, Liam Payne and Cheryl have literally become the most secretive celeb power couple ever.

They teased fans when their relationship first started, kept the whole world guessing whether they were actually having a baby together, then (as we previously guessed) shocked everyone by announcing they'd welcomed a baby boy into the world.

Although, it seems that now they're willing to share a little bit more about their lives following the birth of Bear Payne. The former One Direction member has been spilling all the gossip surrounding his new family; from the name he originally wanted to call his son, to Bear Payne's middle name we've found out a lot while he has been promoting his solo single.

But now he has revealed he's still angry about something Chezza did during their second encounter on the X Factor. The pair first met in 2008 when Liam auditioned for the X Factor, unfortunately he didn't get through so decided to audition again in 2010.

During his second audition – and second time he met Cheryl – he got a standing ovation from all the judges except the mother of his child. According to The Sun, he told Heat Radio: "I got a standing ovation from everyone except for Cheryl, which I thought was hilarious.

"She said she was having a row with Simon because he should have stood up for somebody else, so she didn't stand up for me.

"But I'm still, I'm angry about that."

We wouldn't worry about it Liam, you went on to join one of the biggest boybands in the world and you now have a child with the lady who didn't give you a standing ovation.

How about that, ey?

The 23-year-old dad also admitted he finally quit smoking following the arrival of his son. He explained to Kiss FM: "I stopped smoking, that’s the best thing ever. Honestly, anyone out there who’s trying to stop smoking, just do it, honestly.

"I just did cold turkey, I knew my son was coming, and I was like, I’m not gonna be smoking with my son, that’s not right."

He added: "My life’s not my own anymore, now, it’s not mine to decide, so smoking had to go."

Good for you Liam!
