The new dad is experiencing the ups and downs of parenthood
Liam Payne has spoken out about life as a dad for the first time and he’s clearly experiencing both the highs and lows of having a newborn.
The One Direction star welcomed a baby boy with girlfriend Cheryl nearly one week ago and hilariously admitted in an early hours Twitter message that they’re getting through A LOT of nappies.
‘When the fourth nappy happens in 5 minutes,’ Liam, 23, Tweeted on Tuesday alongside a gif of Ross Geller from Friends yelling: ‘NO! No, no!’
Liam’s fans found his insight into family life pretty amusing, with one commenting on the Tweet: ‘welcome to parenthood’
Meanwhile another quipped: ‘You’ve been a dad for like 2 minutes and you’re already making dad jokes lmao’
Other suggested that Liam should seek out the advice of his 1D bandmate Louis Tomlinson, who became the first member of the group to have a child when former fling Briana Jungwirth gave birth to his son Freddie last year.
Still, it’s great to hear that Liam is being a hands-on dad.
The star’s funny message comes just a few hours after he broke his silence to reach out to his fans following the arrival of his son.
‘Thank you to everyone for the love and supportive messages for myself and @CherylOfficial,’ Liam told his 23.9million followers. ‘It really means a lot’
Nawww. This update has only left fans even more eager to find out what Liam and Cheryl, 33, are going to call the little one.
‘WHATS HIS NAME?’ one asked, whilst another commented: ‘CONGRSTULATIONS!! You’d be incredible parents, you already are. Now we want to know the baby’s name’
Liam’s latest posts are the first time he’s spoken out since he and Chezza announced on Saturday night that their son had arrived a few days earlier.
The couple both shared a photo of new dad Liam cradling the tot and Liam couldn’t hide his joy as he spoke about the moment he became a father.
‘My close friends and family know there are very few times when I’m left speechless… wow!’ he wrote alongside the snap.
‘I’m incredibly happy to welcome our new baby boy into the world, it’s a moment that I will never forget for the rest of my life and my favourite memory I have so far.
‘I’m completely in awe of his incredible mother and how she has been the whole way through this, she’s really made my dreams come true.
‘We haven’t named him yet but he’s already capturing hearts including mine. I feel very blessed.’
Meanwhile Cheryl has kept quiet since announcing her baby’s birth, which is understandable given that she’s off being a busy mum ’n all.
Still, we look forward to more dad anecdotes from Liam over the weeks ahead.
