Liam Payne

His cousin Ross Har­ris says ‘it’s been hard for any­one to get round’ to see the seven-month-old

Now (UK) - - News - Words by Selina May­cock

As the world waits with bated breath for Liam Payne and Ch­eryl to make their first public ap­pear­ance with their sev­en­month-old son Bear, we can re­veal that we’re not the only ones who are keen to meet the lit­tle one.

Liam’s cousin, Ross Har­ris, tells us he still hasn’t met the fa­mous baby.

Singer and drum­mer Ross, 26 – who re­cently re­leased his de­but sin­gle Com­pound Frac­ture days be­fore Liam re­leased his sec­ond solo track Bed­room Floor – says he caught up with his su­per­star cousin in LA a few months ago. And news of their meet-up begged us to ask Ross, who kept his new mu­sic a sur­prise from Liam be­cause he didn’t want the for­mer One Di­rec­tion hunk to feel pres­sured to help, whether he or his fam­ily have seen baby Bear…

‘I haven’t had a chance be­cause I’ve been so busy,’ says Ross, who has spent the past 12 months work­ing on his solo mu­sic as well as tour­ing as a drum­mer for Busted. ‘Liam’s in­vited me round but I haven’t been in the same coun­try at the same time.

‘Ev­ery­one’s been so busy, so it’s been pretty much hard for any­one to get round there, plus you kind of want to leave them alone. A new­born child, it’s a busy thing and they have enough trou­ble with sleep­ing pat­terns and tak­ing care of the baby – but hope­fully I’ll get to go round soon.’

Liam and Ch­eryl have been dat­ing since they went public with their re­la­tion­ship 18 months ago, but Ross also re­vealed that he is yet to meet the Ge­ordie singer.

He tells us, ‘I still haven’t met Ch­eryl. It would be nice to catch up with them and see the lit­tle one. Maybe I’ll take Bear some drum­sticks – af­ter all, you have to start them young.’

And with two neph­ews in his fam­ily, Ross adds, ‘I think I’m a good babysit­ter, so if they need help, then of course I’d like to.’

Liam re­cently re­vealed that his son was named af­ter the growl­ing na­ture of his breath­ing and Ross, who ad­mits he’d like to get in the stu­dio with his cousin, says he wouldn’t rule out putting Bear on a track, as he once sam­pled his lit­tle nephew’s laugh. Let’s make this hap­pen, guys…
