Cheryl and Liam Payne 'call their new son Bear after spending a week getting to know him'

By Julia Hunt

Cheryl and Liam Payne have reportedly named their baby son Bear.

The new parents decided the moniker suited their new arrival a few days after he arrived on March 22.

The Sun said the baby has his father's surname.

A source was quoted as saying: "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.

"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."

The source said the couple were "truly over the moon and loving being parents for the first time together".

Former Girls Aloud singer and X Factor judge Cheryl (33) and Payne (23) have been keeping a low profile since their first child was born.

However, shortly after he arrived they both shared a sweet image on social media showing the One Direction star cradling their baby.

Actresses Kate Winslet and Alicia Silverstone both have sons named Bear.

Cheryl sought a divorce from French restaurateur Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini last year after complaining that his unreasonable behaviour had caused her stress and weight loss, court papers show.

A family court judge drew the couple's marriage to a close in October.
