Cheryl Tweedy suffered with dark circles and pigmentation when she was pregnant.

The 34-year-old singer welcomed her little boy Bear into the world with her boyfriend Liam Payne 14 months ago and she has admitted it took six months after his arrival until she felt ready to get back to her glamorous self and focus on herself again.

Speaking to HELLO! magazine, she said: ''My son's one and I had to do something. When I was pregnant I had pigmentation on my face so I wanted to start to correct that. I would say my beauty regime came back after about six months.''

The 'Fight For This Love' hitmaker - who flaunted her incredible post-baby figure just months after giving birth - has a new appreciation for her physique after pregnancy.

She said: ''More so as a mother, probably.

''You realise how much you need to take care of yourself and you respect your body a lot more for what it can do - I do, anyway.''

The brunette beauty and her partner are both busy with their music careers but Cheryl makes sure she plans ahead so that she can leave Bear with her mother.

Asked how she and Liam, 24, manage to juggle their globe-trotting careers with parenthood, she said: ''Um, grandparents!

''And I just plan ahead. It's planned not to fail. I'm quite organised when it comes to the baby because I have to be. And if I plan, then I can book in the grandparents.''

Meanwhile, Liam - who has been dating Cheryl since the end of 2015 - recently hinted that wedding bells could be in the distant future for them as a couple.

He teased: ''I don't feel like I need to go to that step to feel any differently about how I do about my relationship. I feel like we're in a really comfortable place right now and, like, having my son means more than anything to me in the world.

''So you know, it's not really like we need to take that next step. We might do it in the long-term, but it's not, like, a big deal.''
