Liam Payne has taken a break from his duties as a father to enjoy a night out with his friends.

The former One Direction singer recently welcomed son Bear to the world with his former Girls Aloud star girlfriend Cheryl.

Ex X Factor judge Cheryl and Liam have both taken a relative step back from public life since the new addition to their family arrived in March while they look after their baby.

And, while Liam has also been working at putting the finishing touches to his debut solo album, he gave fans a candid look at his evening out on Friday.

Liam looked casual in a black Adidas baseball cap and white hoodie as he posed for Snapchat pictures with his pals.

He even asked his social media followers for their opinion on his attire, posting a picture of his shoes and writing: “What do you think?”

With one other photo, Liam’s friend Andy Samuels had a message for his famous friend’s baby, captioning his Snapchat: “God bless Bear from the lads.”

Liam may have headed home early to bed from his celebratory trip out as he was spotted out and about in London the day before looking tired with weary eyes.

The name of Cheryl and Liam’s baby only surfaced last week after fans thought they found out the little one’s moniker.

Fans previously thought they had called him Taylor after a record for him was made on a celebrity information database website.

But he is actually called Bear, with a source telling 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 so they got to know him first.

“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.”
