Liam Payne can’t wait to celebrate his son’s first Christmas!
ET spoke with the 24-year-old singer at Z100 New York’s iHeartRadio Jingle Ball presented by Capital One at Madison Square Garden, where he revealed how he’s preparing to celebrate the holidays with family.
“My holiday plans are to spend some beautiful time with my son and to eat my own weight in lovely Christmas food,” he joked. “You might see a different Liam after Christmas, and then you’ll see post-Christmas Liam with a new years resolution, hopefully!”
Payne started dating Cheryl Cole in 2016, and the couple welcomed their first child, Bear, in March 2017. According to the One Direction singer, fatherhood has changed him in “in every single way.”
On Wednesday 22nd March Liam and I became parents to an incredibly beautiful, healthy baby boy, weighing 7lb 9 and looking like a dream. Although he still doesn't have a name he is already stealing hearts. We are all madly in love and overwhelmingly happy with our little arrival. Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers around the world. A day that now has a different meaning to me forever 💙
“It’s the first thing you think about in the morning and the last thing you think about at night,” he gushed.
“It’s his first Christmas,” he continued, before revealing a holiday tip he’s gotten from another parent: “He’s only going to be interested in the wrapping paper, so buy the shiniest one!”
For now, Payne has been on the road performing at Jingle Ball, and reunited with his former bandmate, Niall Horan, at the concert in Los Angeles last week. See more in the video below.
