Liam and Chezza shocked fans when they became an item, but that's only because we all remember the first time they met when he was a young lad on The X Factor...

But now he's revealed his heartache over having to leave girlfriend, Cheryl and their son Bear Grey Payne in a bid to 'find himself'. The singer is due to set off on tour for a while, but Chezza and the baby won't be joining him. Speaking to Us Weekly, Liam said: "He's going to stay with his mum until we really figure out what we're doing,"

"It's going to be difficult, it's hard being away, but time differences with babies and stuff - it's really hard on them.

"I don't want to drag him around the world for, you know, just for my sanity. We'll do it when the time's right."

TBH, that's a pretty fair deal. He is only a few months old, after all.


However, it looks like the couple will be fine even if they are apart for a while, as Cheryl caused a stir on Wednesday when she was seen sporting a 'present' from Liam.

During her time spent in Paris for fashion week the 34-year-old singer was seen wearing this gold ring...

However, according to a source speaking to Heat, Chezza, who has just been announced as a guest judge on The X Factor, is NOT engaged. Instead it's a 'pre-engagement ring' (whatever that means).

The insider told the publication: "Liam gave her a ring.

"It's exactly the kind of simple design Cheryl would want."

The sourced knocked back claims that the pair were now engaged, but claimed: "It's not an engagement ring but when they do take that step, it would be her perfect under-the-radar proposal.

"She's not materialistic any more, her blingy WAG days are over."

The footage of the rehearsal was posted on L'Oreal's Instagram account, for which Cheryl is a beauty ambassador for.
