Liam Payne opens up about parenting arrangement with Cheryl after split
Liam Payne has opened up about his deal with Cheryl after the couple broke up in 2018.
The celebrity couple share a child together, Bear.
Payne had previously spoken of the struggles of becoming a father when he was still in his early twenties.
“Becoming a dad at such a young age is such a difficult thing,” he said, speaking on the documentary Ant Middleton and Liam Payne: speaking frankly. “And I think I built fatherhood so much in my head that it kind of messed me up initially. I started in a bad place with her.
“I think it scared me at first, and I was just worried that I wouldn’t be enough to take care of them both. They are so important to me – Cheryl too.
Speaking on Logan Paul impulsive podcast, Payne gave more insight into the couple’s post-split parenting arrangement.
“She’s the best mom in the world. I couldn’t ask for more from anyone,” he said. “I take my son to school once or twice a week and that’s what only the best. The relationship we have now as friends has only grown.
“We broke up for a reason and now she gives me complete autonomy over my life and doing what I do and I know [Bear’s] supported. He is everything she cares about and I couldn’t ask for more. They live three minutes from my house.
He added: “I always stick to where he is. My life now is his. My money is his. He is a sweet and adorable boy. We have been blessed.
