Liam Payne sparks wedding rumours with "wife" comment

One Direction member Liam Payne has sparked rumours he and partner Cheryl Cole have secretly wed after he described her as his “wife” during a radio interview.

While joking about his favourite American burgers, the 23-year-old said: “I left my wife and child at home and I was straight out to In-N-Out Burger.”

The singer recently became a father to son Bear Grey Payne in March with 33-year-old Cheryl, and shared he's gotten very lucky in the diaper changing department.

Recalling the day after the birth he said: “I did all the first day’s worth of nappy changes, because [Cheryl] was so tired, she slept more or less. All day, there was no poo. I was like this is great, I can handle this.”

The next night, Cheryl got up at 5am to Bear's cries to change his nappy.

Liam says: “I was like ‘Go on babes’, this was her first ever nappy change. So he poos for the first time, of course he does.”

“Secondly, sprouts off (wees). I’m looking at him thinking this didn’t happen to me all day. That’s so unfair. She had to give birth to him and she was the one who got weed on first.”
