Speaking to Mirror, the Strip That Down singer revealed that the pair initially struggled due to their ten-year age gap, but he managed to ‘cling on’ to the former Girls Aloud star and convinced her to stay (we don’t know why you’d EVER dump Paynos, but anyway…).
“There’s one song that is basically a phone call that happened between me and her when she was about to let it go,” he said, adding, “This is a long time ago. And it’s basically me trying to cling on and say: ‘No, no, no it’s all going to work out — don’t worry about it, give it time.’”
Obviously everything worked out peachy in the end, as the genetically-blessed couple welcomed their first bub Bear Grey Payne into the world almost two months ago, and while Liam might be busy jetting across the world to promote his new single, he revealed that Chez is totally chill about the whole sitch.
“She’s like, ‘You’ve got to go out and do your job, do your job.’ That’s how she is with it and Bear’s beautiful and I love him and I miss him terribly."
Cheryl, meanwhile, broke her Twitter silence today for probs the best reason ever after she tweeted:
