It’s definitely not a name you’ll forget!
It seems like we waited forever to find out what Cheryl and Liam Payne decided to call their baby son, but they finally revealed he was called Bear Payne at the start of this month... and now Liam's confirmed his equally unusual middle name.
Yep, the couple have given Bear the middle name of 'Grey'... making his full name Bear Grey Payne!

Cheryl and Liam decided on their son's unusual name after taking a week to get to know him with a source telling The Sun, "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 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.”
BABY BEAR. How blooming cute is that?!
It's no surprise we had to wait five weeks to find out his name as the couple also kept everyone in the dark throughout the pregnancy, with Cheryl finally revealing her bump in a L'Oreal advert right before giving birth.
On Wednesday 22nd March Liam and I became parents to an incredibly beautiful, healthy baby boy, weighing 7lb 9 and looking like a dream. Although he still doesn't have a name he is already stealing hearts. We are all madly in love and overwhelmingly happy with our little arrival. Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers around the world. A day that now has a different meaning to me forever
They announced baby Bear's arrival a few days after the birth with an adorable photo of Liam holding the new bundle of joy - and we can't wait to see more of the tot soon!
