What is the age gap between Liam Payne and Cheryl, how long have they been together and when their baby Bear born?

CHERYL and her One Direction boyfriend Liam Payne are settling into life as new parents to their son Bear.

The couple have a significant age difference – but does this really make any difference? Here's the full lowdown.

Cheryl and Liam first met when a young wannabe popstar Liam auditioned for her on The X Factor back in 2009.

He then went on to mega stardom thanks to his time in One Direction.

The pair got together while Cheryl was going through her divorce to second husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini at the beginning of 2016, and made their red carpet debut in May.

Cheryl, 34, showed who wears the trousers in their relationship as she opted for a head-turning sequinned jumpsuit, Liam, 24, looked dapper in a black tie as he posed alongside his girlfriend.

Despite their ten-year age difference they looked completely infatuated with each other and made no secret of their romance since.

Liam was spotted paying a sweet tribute to his pregnant girlfriend – by getting a tattoo of her eye on his arm.

Cheryl's legion of fans first began speculating that Cheryl had given birth in late February after believing that they had calculated her due date to be mid-February and on March 2 Liam fuelled rumours with a cryptic tweet about having to "creep around and stay quiet in the morning".

Days later Cheryl did the same by "liking her pregnant friend’s bare bump photo" but it was all a false alarm.

The couple announced that Cheryl and Liam became parents on Wednesday, March 22, 2017.

The Sun revealed on May 1 that the couple have named their son Bear.

They decided on the unusual name after spending a week getting to know him.

Five-week-old Bear will also take his One Direction star dad’s surname.

Last night a source revealed: “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 wanted to get to know him before they decided on the name.

“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."

Liam has sparked rumours he and Cheryl have secretly wed after he described her as his “wife” during a US radio interview.

While joking about a popular burger chain, the 24-year-old singer said: “I left my wife and child at home and I was straight out to In-N-Out Burger.”

Meanwhile, Cheryl, 34, has already been married twice before, and according to OK! Magazine, "doesn't want a circus" if and when she weds Liam.

An insider told the outlet: “She’d rather have just close friends and family. She’d also love the baby to be sitting on their laps in the wedding photos."

However, another source told Closer: "Liam would still like a huge celebration. He wants to shout about their wedding from the rooftop.”

Liam has just launched his long awaited and highly anticipated solo music career — releasing debut single Strip That Down, a likely summer smash, co-written with Ed Sheeran.

Cheryl has supporting him working so soon after the birth.

He says: “Me and Cheryl, our relationship is amazing and I put that down to her support more than anything, she’s just so great.

“She’s like: ‘You’ve got to go out and do your job, do your job.’"

Chezza recently tweeted that she's "so proud" of LP following the release of Strip That Down.

The Sun can confirm that she now officially changed her name back to "Cheryl Tweedy".
