One Direction’s Liam was only 14 years old when he met former Girls’ singer Aloud Chezza during a singing competition audition in 2008.
Despite their 10-year age gap, the couple made things work when they met in 2016, until their relationship started to collapse years later.
It looks like the former couple are on good terms now as they proudly co-sponsor three-year-old son Bear together.
But there have been ups and downs in the past two years as Cheryl, 36, was forced to accept the heartbreaking breakup despite sharing a child with Liam, 26.
Just months after their shock broke, Cheryl admitted that she had found “the man of her dreams” when she left her ex.
Cheryl, who has been married twice, said about Bear, “I feel full. My heart is full, I am fulfilled. I’m not looking for anything anymore. I am full. I have the man of my dreams. . ”
She did a little search at her ex, who has since been linked to model Naomi Campbell and is now dating Maya Henry, as she has revealed that she is “no longer looking for anything.”
In 2019, Cheryl seemed to lack Liam’s company, as the reality of their split began to flow.
A source close to the star told Closer, “Cheryl really loved Liam as the father of her child, and although she thinks separation was the right thing, that doesn’t mean she misses him.
“She really likes it when they’re with Bear because they feel like a solid family unit – even if they’re just friends. “
Her friends said that one of Cheryl’s biggest fears was that Liam would find a new woman and have to split her time.
Fast forward to 2020, and the former couple would have had their fair share of arguments in recent months because Liam is having trouble visiting Bear amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Bear celebrated his locked out third birthday and allegedly caused a confrontation between Cheryl and Liam because the worshiping dad was unable to visit his home for the occasion.
The mother of a child lives in Buckinghamshire with her son while Liam is in London.
He did FaceTimed Bear on his birthday, but was frustrated that he couldn’t see his baby boy in person that day, due to Cheryl’s concerns.
“Liam has not seen Bear since mid-March and is feeding on him. He desperately wants to spend time with him, but Cheryl is convinced that she does not want to risk their health, “said a source in the heat.
“She and Bear isolate themselves at home in the countryside, while Liam is in London and she does not want to take any risks. “
They added, “It can sometimes be frustrating for Liam – and there have been some heated debates – but he knows it’s the best. But that doesn’t stop him from feeling hurt. “
The Geordie star has not been linked to anyone else since their separation.
Cheryl turns out to have recovered and seems to be quite happy when she lives with Bear.
Earlier this year, the former X Factor judge said, “I have come this far. I am so happy now.
“I am happy with who I am and where I am in my life, and my situation… [and] my son. “
And she even considered asking her ex to go back to live with her and Bear after the lockdown.
“The lockdown really got Cheryl thinking about her future and what’s going to happen with Liam,” a source told Heat.
“Liam couldn’t see Bear and it was so hard for each of them. She and Liam still get along very well and Cheryl suggested he go home for a while when it’s all over.
“She has such a big house, so there is a lot of space and she thinks it will be great for Bear to have them both. “
