Liam Payne recently sat down with Scott Mills and Chris Stark for an interview with the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show. The One Direction singer opened up about his domestic life with his baby mama Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and discussed new music.
“I needed a bit of down time to get away from it all,” Liam said, explaining what he was up to as the other members of 1D were dropping new solo music. “I had a lot to do at that time.”
The timing of his son’s birth worked out, though, as he says, “We didn’t want to get in each other’s way when we had our release thing.” Liam also got to make his move after seeing where Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson succeeded and where they failed.
