After spending a week getting to know their baby boy, Liam Payne and Cheryl Cole were ready to decide on a name.
According to a source quoted by The Sun, the couple decided on the name Bear several days after the child's birth. The boy will also be taking his father's surname.
"They spent over a week getting to know him first before deciding..." the source said. "They didn't have the name Bear before the birth."
"But they'd been thinking of a name since meeting him and they just felt it suited him."
On Wednesday 22nd March Liam and I became parents to an incredibly beautiful, healthy baby boy, weighing 7lb 9 and looking like a dream. Although he still doesn't have a name he is already stealing hearts. We are all madly in love and overwhelmingly happy with our little arrival. Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers around the world. A day that now has a different meaning to me forever ðŸ'™
Bear is a fairy common name in the celebrity world. Both Kate Winslet and Alicia Silverstone named their sons Bear.
