Liam Payne has been discussing fatherhood and admits he struggled to find his feet as a dad at first.

The Strip That Down hit-maker is dad to Bear, two, whom he shares with his ex-girlfriend Cheryl.

Speaking about how he found becoming a dad, Liam said it was difficult to establish a bond with Bear at first, because Cheryl was ‘always really glued’ to their baby boy.

So, he decided that by making Cheryl his priority, he was looking after both her and his baby.

Liam told The Guardian: ‘I built it up so much in my head. Finding your feet in that relationship between child and father… it’s difficult.’

‘Cheryl was always really glued to Bear,’ Liam claimed. ‘So for me, I was like, “What’s my role in this? If I cook and look after her, then in turn I’m looking after him,” that made sense to me.’

Liam and Cheryl welcomed Bear in March 2017, before then announcing their split in July last year after dating for over two years.

Despite splitting, the exes have stayed pretty much on good terms and Liam revealed he often spends time with Cheryl and Bear when he can.

During his appearance on Straight Talking with Ant Middleton, Liam confessed that he thinks about Cheryl moving on with somebody else and hopes that she ‘finds happiness’.

He said: ‘I hope she’s happy, she deserves it, she’s a great mum, she works hard, she deserves to find happiness.

‘I have thought long and hard about [her moving on with someone else]. We will find our own peace with it, for now, it’s good. I go over, do whatever, watch TV, it’s good. It’s nice.’

Liam, meanwhile, is dating 19-year-old model Maya Henry. The couple confirmed their relationship back in August and he seems pretty smitten with his new gal.

Sharing a sweet post of himself cuddled up to Maya on Instagram, Liam gushed: ‘Sometimes I don’t recognise this happy guy… sure glad you brought him back though.’
