Following his performance at Ariana Grande’s benefit concert to support the victims of the tragic Manchester bombing, Liam had nothing but praise for his pal for supporting the worthy cause.
"It's great to see him. He's different with his different hair. I haven't seen him in a while but I've watched his progression and how he's doing at the moment. I watched him play at the Ariana gig which I thought was an amazing thing everyone did. Hats off to him, it was such an important cause as well."
Meanwhile, the 23-year-old has been keeping himself busy with his own solo career, as well as being a first-time dad to him and partner Cheryl’s three month old son.
Speaking at Capital FM's Summertime Ball on Saturday, Paynos spilled all about ~dad life~ with baby Bear.
“He's literally learnt to giggle yesterday,” he said, adding, “So he giggled for the first time and me and Cheryl went 'ah'. It's literally the best thing ever."
“We don't take a lot of photos so we've started getting into taking a lot of photos and things. It's great.”
