The Fight for this Love singer takes care of their three-year-old child in her Buckinghamshire home since the lockdown while Liam remains in London.
Liam, 26, made no secret of how much he misses his son, whom he hasn’t seen since March, and shared his emotional calls with Facetime with Bear.
The distance led Cheryl, 36, to start thinking about the future and making sure Liam could see her boy.
“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 around. “
In April, Liam explained how much he missed Bear and revealed that he had even been forced to miss his third birthday.
Speaking on Good Morning Britain, Liam revealed that he and his ex Cheryl had made the decision together because his busy tour schedule meant he could have been exposed to the deadly coronavirus.
Liam said, “It was a really tough call not to go on her birthday and I discussed it with Cheryl and we thought it was the best option. “
One’s father said he should just watch Bear’s birthday on video calls.
He continued: “It was horrible, missing it was not great, I had a lot of photos and videos and FaceTime, but this is the hardest thing.

“It was the most difficult thing for all of us. But I think the technology that separated us far enough now brings us closer than ever. “
A few weeks later, Liam revealed in a YouTube video how hard he was to separate him from his son.
“Bear has been extremely funny right now. Very cute too, ”said Liam in his video.
“It was the hardest moment right now to be away from him.
“On FaceTime, I saw everything about him jumping up and down on a trampoline in Wellington boots, playing a ukulele, wearing a princess dress and a fire jacket.
“If you can imagine it. That’s what he was doing back then, “he laughed.
But, at the age of three, Bear does not understand why his father has not been able to see him for a while.
“Sometimes he wants to say hello on FaceTime and other times he doesn’t want to say hello,” said Liam.
“I was like that. I can see a lot of me in him.
“The other day he said” we need you here now, dad “.
“Bless him … made me want to cry,” admitted the singer.
