Liam recalled: “I get home from like learning a dance and I’m like, ‘I can’t do this one move where I’m supposed to do this,’ and she’s like, ‘Oh, it’s easy you just do this,” then I’m like, ‘Ah’. Honestly she is a really good teacher.”
He continued: “I’ll tell you one funny story, when she was pregnant she tried to twerk in a mirror and she twerked once, and I was like, no, I’m out of here, ran, no, gone.”
Liam also revealed that he has quit smoking since welcoming baby son Bear.

He said: “I stopped smoking, that’s the best thing ever. Honestly, anyone out there who’s trying to stop smoking, just do it, honestly.
“I just did cold turkey, I knew my son was coming, and I was like, I’m not gonna be smoking with my son, that’s not right.
“My life’s not my own anymore, now, it’s not mine to decide, so smoking had to go.”
