ch­eryl de­cides ‘i can’t Be with you’

As Liam’s up­com­ing trip looms, she’s put­ting her foot down

Un­be­liev­ably, it’s al­ready been 12 weeks since baby Bear made his way into the world – and that means it’s been three months since Liam Payne and Ch­eryl be­came first-time par­ents.

The pair should still be very much in their ‘baby bub­ble’, but even though 23-year-old Liam has al­ready (rather smugly) ad­mit­ted that the pair are get­ting a full seven hours’ sleep a night, paradise is a long way off.

Stress has ap­par­ently sur­faced in many ways – Liam was ex­cep­tion­ally vo­cal about their son re­cently, while Ch­eryl prefers to keep things more pri­vate. Their time apart, thanks to Liam’s pro­mo­tional schedule for his new mu­sic, has also been tough, but there’s now a new bat­tle brew­ing be­tween the two as he plans to head to the US to launch his mu­sic to the American market.

‘Liam’s plan­ning to spend six months in the States,’ our source re­veals. ‘He wants to make it big out there and knows he has to put the work in. Orig­i­nally his plan was that Ch­eryl and Bear would be com­ing with him.’

How­ever, it looks like this won’t be the case as Ch­eryl, 33, has been telling friends that Bear needs sta­bil­ity and their ex­tended fam­ily around him.

‘Ch­eryl’s to­tally sup­port­ive of Liam’s ca­reer and she knows this is the time he has to put the work in, but her pri­or­ity is her son. She’s adamant it won’t be good for Bear with Liam’s non­stop schedule, so she wants her mum and friends around to help.’ Since the baby was born, Liam con­firmed that Ch­eryl’s been do­ing it all alone: ‘She hasn’t had any help from any­body and she’s done it all her­self, she’s amaz­ing.’

But Ch­eryl’s mum Joan has been on hand to of­fer guid­ance and last month ar­chi­tec­tural draw­ings for an ex­ten­sion on Liam’s Sur­rey place re­vealed work had started on con­vert­ing his garage into a sep­a­rate flat – ‘a granny an­nexe’, we’re told by sources.

‘Liam just thinks that be­cause Ch­eryl’s done so well, it won’t be a prob­lem for her and Bear to re­lo­cate. He doesn’t want to be far away and thinks that as a cou­ple they should make the move to help his ca­reer and to keep their re­la­tion­ship on track,’ adds our source.

De­spite his pleas, Chez isn’t budg­ing. ‘She doesn’t want to go,’ con­tin­ues the source. ‘She wants him to just fly back more of­ten. They’re both well off and she thinks they should be en­joy­ing the baby rather than mak­ing any dra­matic moves over­seas.’

‘I think you just fo­cus on what’s right for you and you learn to trust your own in­stincts and fol­low them,’ said Ch­eryl in her last in­ter­view. Liam, it sounds like you’ll be mak­ing a lot of long-haul flights...

Bear is her pri­or­ity right now
