Stephen Bear suggests Cheryl and Liam named their baby after him
The news that Cheryl and Liam have apparently decided to name their baby boy ‘Bear’ has attracted a lot of attention, not least from one reality star who also shares the unusual moniker.
Stephen Bear told The Sun Online that he believes Cheryl named the baby after him because she “fancies” him.
He told the news publication: “Maybe it’s because she fancies me. Jokes!”
On a serious note, he added: “It’s a good name. The baby’s going to be good looking with an amazing personality.
“Congratulations to them both.”
The Sun reported that Cheryl and Liam had decided on the name ‘Bear’ after a week of getting to know their newborn.
A source said: “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.
“They love their little baby Bear Payne and are truly over the moon and loving being parents for the first time together.”
