Cheryl reveals her son Bear, 6, has realised both she and his father Liam Payne are celebrities: ‘How lucky am I to have famous parents?’
Cheryl has revealed her son Bear has realised that both of his parents are famous.
The singer, 40, shares her six-year-old son with former One Direction singer Liam Payne, but has chosen to keep him out of the public eye.
Speaking to British Vogue for the Girls Aloud reunion, Cheryl told how Bear thinks it’s ‘pretty cool’ that both of his parents are famous pop stars.
Asked if her son might make an appearance on stage at some point during the tour, Cheryl said: ‘The problem is that I want Bear to have a normal childhood.
‘I don’t want people recognising him on the street. But he’s twigged that I’m famous. The other day he said, “How lucky am I to have famous parents?” I said, “It doesn’t matter.” He goes: “Yeah. But it’s pretty cool.” ‘

Cheryl and her Girls Aloud bandmates appeared on The Zoe Ball Breakfast Show on BBC Radio 2 on Thursday to speak about their reunion.
When asked about Bear, Cheryl said: ‘Bear is delicious and not a baby anymore. We blinked and we’re here almost seven!’
Cheryl and Liam, 30, began dating after her separation from ex-husband Jean Fernandez-Versini who she divorced in 2016.
Bear was born in 2017 with Cheryl and Liam, who she first met when he was a contestant on The X Factor and she was a judge, the following year.
Cheryl previously revealed she was considering using a sperm donor to have a second child but later decided against it.
She said her attitude changed post-pandemic and now that there would be a bigger age gap between her children.
She told MailOnline: ‘I was so hell bent on having another before because Bear was at that perfect age. I think if you have that couple year age gap, you can still do things with them together where they’re both engaged and both interested.
‘Now that the pandemic happened in the in the meantime, and there’s such an age gap, and I’m a bit older. I’m not so sure, honestly.’
Cheryl said: ‘The other day he said, “How lucky am I to have famous parents?” I said, “It doesn’t matter.” He goes: “Yeah. But it’s pretty cool” ‘

Yet she didn’t rule out other methods of caring for children, noting: ‘maybe adoption. I just love babies and children and I’d do anything to help or have another one around but it’s not as prevalent anymore.
‘Also in the process of the pandemic I looked around at the world and thought this world is a bit crazy. Is it a sensible idea to bring a soul into all into this madness?’
While he is still young, Cheryl has been ensuring her son’s privacy is respected, opting not to show his face on social media.
The Fight For This Love hitmaker revealed she tries to keep Bear away from the internet but confessed that her little one does love going on YouTube and became ‘obsessed’ with the viral Wednesday dance craze started by the Netflix series.
