But he and girlfriend Cheryl still manage to celebrate
Cheryl sent a super-sweet message to boyfriend Liam Payne on Father’s Day yesterday.
Unfortunately, Liam couldn’t be with their three-month-old son Bear, due to the fact that he’s currently travelling the world promoting his debut solo single Strip That Down.
He was in Buffalo, New York on the big day, before heading back to Europe for a gig in Milan.
But despite his busy schedule, Bear and Cheryl are clearly still the first things on his mind. And this hasn’t gone unnoticed with Chezza.
The 33-year-old shared a photo of her man, writing alongside it: ‘Happy 1st Father’s Day Liam.. You are the most amazing daddy and the best example for our son. The way he looks at you says it all. Your relationship melts my heart. You are the centre of his world & We adore you 🐻🌎💙.’
How cute?! Liam, 23, also noted the occasion on his page, in an Instagram Stories video.
He told fans: ‘Just got onto the plane and we’re off to go to Milan. Got these little beds all sorted out, living life, having fun. Happy Father’s Day me, what a great day.’
Across the clip, he’d written: ‘#happyfathersday’, adding the words: ‘Miss you’ and the bear and heart emojis. Aw.
Over on Twitter, he posted: ‘Happy Father’s Day Dad and to all dads … thanks for the messages guys!!!’
Of course, followers were quick to send their best wishes. One commented: ‘Happy fathers day to our 1D father. Daddy Direction,’ while another said: ‘Happiest first Father’s Day!! [sic].’
Let’s hope Liam gets to celebrate belatedly with Cheryl and little Bear soon!
