‘Holding my baby boy for the first time is a memory I will never forget and watching him grow up is just amazing to see.

‘Cheryl has been an incredible mother to baby Bear since the day he was born and I can’t thank her enough for that.’

Aww, how lovely!

Liam recently revealed his plans for baby Bear’s first Christmas, and they involved – well, not a lot actually!

When Now magazine quizzed him on how he’d be spending Christmas at the Pride of Britain Awards last month, he said: ‘Oh, now you’re asking. I don’t really know… a chilled one! It’s Bear’s first Christmas so it’s a very important one.’

Meanwhile, Cheryl shared a cute Christmas Day snap of the other little cutie in her life – her and Liam’s pet chihuahua!

Posting an adorable snap of the pooch in a festive knit, Chez wrote: ‘Merry Christmas ya filthy animals 🐶😝🎄🎁 .. Sending love and happiness from all of ours to all of yours ☺️😘’
