The newly single Liam Payne is seen out with Cheryl for the first time since their split three years ago...
The ex-X Factor judge and contestant remain close despite their relationship not going the distance – they share a son, Bear, who was born in 2017.
Cheryl and Liam were romantically involved for over two and a half years, but called it quits in 2018 – they have continued to co-parent their 4-year-old son.
On Wednesday, the famous parents came together to celebrate a family birthday party – seemingly without Bear – in Liam’s hometown of Wolverhampton, as this publication reports.
It’s reported that the famous exes got on swimmingly at the event, they’ve remained friendly as they navigate parenting Bear as a separated couple.
As the 'Strip That Down' and 'Call My Name' singers left the gathering they were photographed leaving together in a shared car.
Liam Payne and model Maya, 20, got engaged last year after their relationship blossomed in lockdown – however, they parted ways in early June, 10 months after he proposed.
When talking about his relationships the dad of one said: “I feel like more than anything at this point, I'm more disappointed in myself that I keep on hurting people. That annoys me. I've just not been very good at relationships.”
He continued: “I didn’t feel good doing what I did but it had to happen. Just a corny way to say it was the best for the both of us. I hope she’s happy.”
In the following weeks from the split the 27-year-old hit-maker was spotted out and about sporting a new bleached hairdo.
Now, nearly a month since the young couple called it quits, Liam is throwing himself into family life in his hometown with the mother of his child.
