Liam Payne's son Bear ''loves'' to sing.

The 24-year-old singer's little boy may only be five months old but the former One Direction hunk believes the tot is already showing signs in following in the famous footsteps of both himself and his partner Cheryl Tweedy.

Liam told 'Entertainment Tonight Canada': ''He loves singing. He loves being sang to. That's what makes him happy and what makes him laugh, so maybe there's a bit of music in him, you know.''

And the 'Strip That Down' hitmaker feels ''super blessed'' to have a ''super happy, chill baby'' who already sleeps through the night.

He gushed: ''It is really the best thing ever, and I suppose it just changes your outlook on everything.

''He's just a super happy, chill baby. We're super blessed that he just chills out and since he was eight weeks, he's been sleeping 11 hours.''

Liam praised Cheryl - who shot to fame as a member of Girls Aloud in 2002 but launched a solo career in 2009 - for being his ''rock'' in the aftermath of One Direction going on hiatus and giving him the support and encouragement he needed to go it alone.

He said: ''She's been there before. She's broken records in the UK for having the most singles as a solo female go number one. So it's like you have one of the best people at this job at your house saying, 'Come on! You can do this.' ''

But while the hunky star is enjoying his solo career, he expects to reunite with Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan again in the future.

Asked the possibility of a reunion, he said: ''Yeah, 100 per cent. I think we did the right thing at the right time. But, you know, I see everyday people counting the days since we've been away, and I can't believe it.''
