Cheryl finally shared some photos!

We know you've clicked on this because you're DYING to see a pic of Liam Payne and Cheryl's tiny tot Baby Bear. We were desperate to see a snap of the little 'un too - so we were very excited that Cheryl FINALLY shared a few snaps of him from over the Christmas period. But, in all the photos, we can only see the back of little bear's ADORABLE head of curls.

So we're just going to get creative for a moment and refer back to this mash-up of what we thought their baby might look like, which we made before Bear was born by using Liam's nose and Cheryl's eyes. Yeah, it was a bit weird but bear with us (pun fully intended)...

Because, according to comments made by Liam, we actually weren't far off!

Yep, the new dad, who met loads of his fans at a Kiss FM event last year, apparently told his fans that little Bear is the "spitting image of him, but with Cheryl's eyes."

We KNEW it!


Although we're completely and totally respectful of Liam and Cheryl's decision not to share pics of their newborn, we also wish that this wasn't the case as we bet the little lad, who the new parents have nicknamed "Bear Cub" (AWW!), is a VERY handsome chap.

Well, he's got good genes!

Speaking of the name, it was apparently all Cheryl's idea, as one fan also wrote on Twitter: "He said that he's really into traditional names and Cheryl is really into outlandish names."

Cheryl: 'I don't want to have a baby alone'

Last July, Cheryl and Liam Payne took to Twitter to confirm that they split after two-and-a-half years together. Explaining the decision, Cheryl said: "We are sad to announce that we are going our separate ways. It's been a tough decision for us to make. We still have so much love for each other as a family. Bear is our world and we ask that you respect his privacy as we navigate our way through this together."
