Just because Niall Horan hasn’t met Liam Payne & Cheryl’s 5-week-old son Bear yet, doesn’t mean he’s not super psyched to! Revealing he has tons of gifts for the infant, Niall admitted their schedules haven’t aligned yet, but he’s def planning a visit soon. Aw! We knew Uncle Niall wouldn’t disappoint.
Looks like Niall Horan, 23, is ALREADY anxious to spoil Liam Payne, 23, and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini‘s, 33, baby son Bear Payne, 5 weeks. Revealing in a recent interview that he has yet to officially meet the little guy, Niall DID say a visit is on the horizon. And when he does see Bear for the first time, he won’t be showing up empty handed! Like any good uncle, the singer already has plenty of goodies for the baby boy.
“I haven’t seen the baby yet, and I can’t wait. I’ve got all my presents… I’ve got trainers, a couple little bits and pieces, a couple of hampers,” Niall told radio host Darryl Morris. “I was just trying to find the time to get down to them, but I’ve been keeping in touch, and I’m looking forward to meeting the baby.” How precious is that? Baby Bear entered the world on Mar. 22, and since then his parents have been relatively secretive about his arrival. After all, fans only found out on May 2 what they chose to name him.
But while Liam and Cheryl have been busy with a little one at home, Niall has been occupied with the release of his new single “Slow Hands.” The catchy song dropped this week, and the Irish singer’s set to embark on a promotional tour! Despite their careers and family lives though, we love that Niall and Liam always seem to be there for each other. After all, this comes after Niall finally broke his silence about his pal’s romance with Cheryl, joking that he’s “done well” for himself by coupling up with the “beautiful” singer.
“She’s one of the most beautiful women in the country so he did well, he did well there as far as I’m concerned,” Niall told The Sun. “She’s a lovely girl, he’s a lovely guy and now they’ve got a baby and it’s great.” We think we can hear One Directioners collectively swooning!
Tell us, HollywoodLifers — are you surprised Niall hasn’t seen Bear yet? Do you love that he and Liam are still good friends?
