On Sunday, Liam Payne admitted that he was gutted to miss his first ever Father’s Day, with work commitments meaning that he was out of the country on his promotional world tour.
However, his girlfriend, Cheryl, made sure that he still felt the love from their three-month-old baby Bear, gushing about Liam in a touching Father’s Day post and gifting him photos to take on the road with him before he left.
Liam has now revealed that the photos were just the beginning of his Father’s Day treat, with the One Direction star showing off his main gift earlier today – and it couldn’t be more fitting.
Posting on Instagram Stories, 23-year-old Liam showed off a seriously bling teddy bear necklace, explaining: “Hi Instagram, sorry I’ve not been on today for the story. We got in at like 1:30am last night from Milan so I was super tired.
“I have had a great day. I got another Father’s Day present – which is a little bear off Cheryl which I really love.”

As well as paying tribute to his son’s unusual name, the necklace also fits Liam’s trademark style to a T with the singer becoming known for his love of big, chunky necklaces as he earned the affectionate nickname ‘Liam Chain’ from his bandmate, Louis Tomlinson.
Sharing a photo of Liam on Father’s Day, Cheryl broke her social media silence to gush about what a fantastic dad he is to little Bear.
She wrote: “Happy 1st Father’s Day Liam.. You are the most amazing daddy and the best example for our son. The way he looks at you says it all.
“Your relationship melts my heart. You are the centre of his world and we adore you.”
Liam was also inundated with well-wishes from his millions of fans across the globe, who rallied around the star to make sure that he felt the love on Father’s Day even though he couldn’t be with his son.
