Fans shocked by how much Cheryl and Liam Payne's son Bear has grown

Fans shocked by how much Cheryl and Liam Payne's son Bear has grown

Fans of Cheryl and Liam Payne are shocked at how much their son Bear has grown, as the former Girls Aloud star posted a picture online

Cheryl is not one to post regularly on social media, and when she does it is often for promotion/marketing purposes.

The former Girls Aloud pop star has largely kept her one son Bear out of the social media spotlight since he was born in 2017.

Cheryl is the co-parent to Bear with Liam Payne, who she first met on the X Factor when she was a judge, and he was a contestant.

With their son now a five-year-old, Cheryl has posted a video of her and Bear at Lapland UK on her Instagram account.

She captioned the post with: "Thank you for the Christmas magic @laplanduk. Wishing you all the warmest wishes for Christmas."

While the magical video mostly featured cut up clips of Lapland UK such as Santa Claus' grotto, it did feature a still image of Cheryl and Bear.

The picture was taken from behind the pair, with Cheryl wearing a red coat and reindeer hat while holding her son's hand.

Bear was also donning the festive look, wearing a Christmas-themed scarf and a nice warm puffer jacket.

Fans were delighted to see a rare photo of Cheryl and Bear, with many of them wishing the former X Factor judge a Merry Christmas.

One person said: "MAGICAL 🎄❄️☃️ have the best Christmas Cheryl and Bear ❤️."

And a second added: "Merry christmas to you & Bear, best wishes for 2023."

There were also many followers that were shocked at how much Bear had grown.

One person on Instagram said: "I can’t tell if Bear is really tall or if you’ve shrunk since the last time I saw you 😂 hope you all have a good Christmas ❤️."

A second added: "Merry Christmas Cheryl and Bear Cannot believe how tall Bear is."

Fans were shocked to see how much Bear has grown.

Meanwhile, another said: "The size of the Bear." - and fourth person said: "Bear is so tall, he’s a big boy now."

Funnily enough, the last picture of Bear that Cheryl shared publicly on her Instagram account was from 2019 during a Lapland UK visit.

Cheryl and Liam split back in 2018, but now share a 'very good relationship'.

Earlier this year, Liam opened up on his relationship with Cheryl, saying that he wasn't prepared to be a dad to Bear.

Speaking on a podcast with Logan Paul, he said: "You don’t know what’s coming and it’s different.

"And to be honest with you, it ruined a relationship at that point – but for all the right reasons.

"I was so excited for him to be born that I was actually worried I wouldn’t love him enough."
