OK, so before we precede, a quick warning.
This report was initially written by The Sun and without confirmation of either Cheryl or Liam Payne. However, if it is true, it’s a moniker that makes us think of one person, and one person only. And it isn’t a particularly favourable one.
According to the tabloid, the new parents have decided to name their bundle of joy ‘Bear’.
“Cheryl and Liam wanted to get to know their baby before deciding on a name,” the paper quotes an unnamed source as saying.
“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.”
Baby ‘Bear’ was born on 22 March. He will apparently take his father’s surname and be ‘Bear Payne’.
Now, actress Kate Winslet and Alicia Silverstone both have a son named Bear. But our minds just drift back to a certain reality TV womaniser and praying it hasn’t been tainted forever by pushy advances and cringe-worthy chat-up lines.
Still. At least it isn’t Simon. We think.
