Liam Payne only met Cheryl’s dad after she had got pregnant
Former One Direction star Liam Payne has revealed he was only introduced to Cheryl’s father after she had got pregnant with his baby.
Appearing on The Graham Norton Show, Liam spoke openly about his relationship with Cheryl and admitted he put on a grown-up persona when he first met her dad.
Describing the moment he first met Cheryl’s dad, he told the host: “My missus was pregnant and I was meeting her dad for the first time so I thought I had better get rid of the life sized model dinosaurs I had in my garden.
“I had bought them drunkenly off the internet.”
And you’ll never guess who we have to thank for setting up the celebrity pair in the first place… It was only X Factor judge Simon Cowell!
Liam explained: “I told him how hot I thought she was. Weeks and months went by and then Niall said, “You’ll never guess who fancies you!” Apparently he had been with Cheryl when Simon told her that I fancied her – she had turned bright red and left the room.”
Liam recently went into detail about his and Cheryl’s nappy changing rota, and it sounds as though Cheryl had a particularly unlucky first experience. Recalling the day after the birth he said: “I did all the first day’s worth of nappy changes, because [Cheryl] was so tired, she slept more or less.
“All day, there was no poo. I was like this is great, I can handle this.”
However, things didn’t go quite as smoothly when Cheryl decided it was time to complete her first 5am nappy change.
Liam continued: “I was like ‘Go on babes’, this was her first ever nappy change. So he poos for the first time, of course he does.
“Secondly, sprouts off (wees). I’m looking at him thinking this didn’t happen to me all day.
“That’s so unfair. She had to give birth to him and she was the one who got weed on first.”
