“I asked him what his favourite tattoo is and he said Cheryl’s eye, but sometimes it feels like she’s always watching,” an excitable Directioner revealed on Twitter.
That wasn’t Liam’s only admission over his relationship with the former X Factor judge, as he also let slip on son Bear’s secret middle name.
“LIAM TOLD US BEAR’S MIDDLE NAME! IT’S GREY! BEAR GREY PAYNE,” the user in question added.

The news comes after Louis Tomlinson’s bandmate reportedly confessed it was Cheryl who had the deciding opinion in naming their first child.
When discussing his new family life, he also affectionally referred to the 33 year old as “the Mrs.”
According to The Sun, the star explained: “I’m into more traditional names, the Mrs… she’s more into more unique, original names that people will remember.

“It was her choice. I wasn’t going to fight her about it, she’s the one who’s done all the work, isn’t she?”
Despite the couple keeping tight-lipped over their private lives in the lead-up to their son’s birth, it seems the proud dad can’t stop talking about their bundle of joy.
Following another chance meeting with the hunk, a One Direction fan added: “Liam also said Bear was a mini version of him with Cheryl’s eyes.”
