We were kinda hoping it was Cheryl Payne...

After months of keeping himself out of the limelight, new dad Liam Payne has been delighting fans recently by answering every single question humanly possible about his life with girlfriend, Cheryl and baby Bear.

Whether he’s trying to promote his debit solo track, Strip That Down, or was just fed up of a life shrouded in mystery – we feel like we’re practically best mates with the 1D hunk lately.

And now the 23-year-old has gone and dropped another HUGE piece of Chiam information on us after revealing what Cheryl’s surname really is…

Yup, after formerly being known as Cheryl Cole and then Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and recently just ‘Cheryl’ – Madonna style – it looks like the Girls Aloud star has now reclaimed her maiden name.

‘Her name is officially Cheryl Tweedy now, but to be honest it doesn’t really bother me,’ he explained.

Before adding: ‘We have a kid together, there’s a lot more to our life.’

You tell ’em, Liam!

But following rumours that the celeb pair actually got wed in secret – after Liam accidentally called his other half ‘wife’ – will Chez be taking on another new name any time soon?

Unfortunately, Liam seemed to squash all hopes of a glorious celeb wedding after he revealed they have no plans to get married anytime soon.

He recently told BBC Radio 1 DJ, Nick Grimshaw: ‘I see marriage as more of a religious thing and I’m not really a religious person, so I know it’s not really on the cards for me at the moment.

‘So no, not yet. We have a baby together – you know our love for each other can’t be more serious so it is what it is, I guess.’

Aw. Well if these two do decide to get married, we’ll be waiting patiently for our invite to the big day…
