And revealing her plans for the festive holiday, Cheryl has admitted she is hesitant about taking her baby boy to see Santa Claus, as she thinks it will worry him.

Cheryl had taken to the stage at Manchester Arena, along with a slew of famous faces including Little Mix and Ellie Goulding for the star-studded event.
She stopped by for a chat with Sarah-Jane Crawford backstage at the concert and conversation quickly turned to the former Girls Aloud stars son Bear – whom she shares with ex-boyfriend Liam Payne.
However, while both Liam and Cheryl have said very little publicly about the break-up, it seems the two families are still close.
She and Liam announced their split in July, just months after Bears first birthday, meaning the star is preparing for her first Christmas as a single mother.
In a joint statement released via Twitter, the couple wrote: “We are sad to announce that we are going our separate ways.
And opening up on the plans she has with her little man, Cheryl said: People have asked me, “Are you going to take him to see Father Christmas?” [but] I think he would still be a little bit worried.
