Liam Payne Hasn't Seen His Son Bear During Lockdown

Liam Payne hasn’t seen his son Bear in weeks.

The 26-year-old “Stack It Up” singer opened up about his quarantine life without Bear, 3, in a recent interview with The Sun.

Bear is currently staying with his mother, Liam‘s ex Cheryl, while Liam is in London, England.

“Me and Cheryl had a very open conversation about visiting, but it’s difficult,” Liam said. “It was right around his birthday that it [the lockdown] happened. It was one of the first times I was in the ­country for his birthday and I was ready to go over and I just thought, ‘I don’t know how I feel about it.’”

“So it’s just been difficult having to put up with a lot of FaceTime, and sometimes he wants to talk on FaceTime, sometimes he doesn’t,” Liam continued. “I have a new-found respect for people who have these jobs that mean they have to miss their kids a lot.”

Liam added during a recent Instagram Live, “Bear is really good. He is learning a lot more about FaceTime at the moment. It is difficult not to see him. That has been the hardest part for me. I’m missing him.”

“I have a mini-Batman which I took off my son,” he also revealed. Cute!

“We are all learning different things about each other and it is difficult and we are all overcoming such a difficult thing,” Liam shared. “But as a glimmer of a positive, there is a nice community feel about it. It is a terrible thing but there is a bit of beauty that we are missing people so much that it has brought life back to us, away from our phones.”
