Liam Payne: Cheryl Tweedy is a 'fantastic' mum

Iconic Cheryl soared to fame with Girls Aloud with the group amassing more than four million album sales during their 13 years together before they split in 2013

Earlier this year Liam, who became a dad for the first time in March of this year, opened up about Cheryl trying to dump him. She said: "I've got the luxury of being able to spend time with my newborn child and I think I'm going to take that for what it is".

However, although the nine months beforehand were hard, the X Factor star went on to add that she's loved life as a mum since giving birth, saying: 'It changes your life completely but in the most fantastic way.
