Since welcoming him into the world back in March 2017, Cheryl Cole and Liam Payne have managed to keep baby Bear under-wraps - only sharing small glimpses of the tot on social media.

But now for the first time, 35-year-old Chez has been spotted out and about with her son – and he’s growing up fast!

The singer – who recently confirmed her split from One Direction star Liam – was photographed taking her 18-month-old to Girls Aloud pal Kimberley Walsh’s house for a birthday party.
