According to The Sun, Payne and Cole, 33, came up with the name after the baby’s birth. The two reportedly spent over a week deciding what to call their newborn before settling with Bear.
“They didn’t have the name Bear before the birth. But they’d been thinking of a name since meeting him and they just felt it suited him,” a source told the British tabloid. “They love their little baby Bear Payne and are truly over the moon and loving being parents for the first time together.”
Payne and Cole welcomed the baby boy on March 22 after more than a year of dating.
“I’m incredibly happy to welcome our new baby boy into the world, it’s a moment that I will never forget for the rest of my life and my favourite memory I have so far,” Payne wrote on his Instagram. “I’m completely in awe of his incredible mother and how she has been the whole way through this, she’s really made my dreams come true. We haven’t named him yet but he’s already capturing hearts including mine. I feel very blessed.”
