Cheryl welcomed her little boy with ex-boyfriend Liam Payne back in March 2017. And while the former X Factor star has managed to keep her son out of the limelight, for the most part, she touched on motherhood in a new interview, where she revealed how her priorities changed the moment she gave birth.

I care less about silly stuff and more about the important things

Speaking to Women’s Health UK about the noticeable changes she experienced after welcoming her offspring, Cheryl expressed that she began caring “less about silly stuff”.

“My approach to life and the world changed when I became a mother to Bear,” she explained.

“I have a completely different perspective now that I’m responsible for another human.

“I care less about silly stuff and more about the important things in life, like Bear’s health and happiness.”

Cheryl and Liam went public with their relationship back in February 2016 after being spotted at a supermarket together in Surrey.

As their relationship progressed, the two eventually moved in together before announcing the news that they were expecting a baby.

However, since their split in July 2018, both Liam and Cheryl have been actively co-parenting Bear to the best of their abilities, considering their busy showbiz careers. 

Liam previously touched on his relationship with Cheryl since their breakup during a chat with Glamour last year, where he insisted that his former flame was “the best person to co-parent with”.

“Fantastic. No stress involved,” the Strip That Down singer said.

“It’s very, very relaxed, and we spend a lot of time on FaceTime. 

“And it’s been really lovely, and I’m closer to them than I’ve ever been before, actually, which is really, really nice. 

“But bedtime FaceTime can go really well sometimes.”

Liam concluded:” Or I bought him some toys yesterday that I showed them on the FaceTime and it was like I had to go and travel over and hand the toys over the fence!”

Meanwhile, in December, it was revealed that Cheryl would not be moving forward with her BBC Sounds You, Me & R&B podcast following the death of her former bandmate and pal Sarah Harding. 

In September, the latter died after a battle with breast cancer, which had spread to other parts of her body in the weeks leading up to her death. 

Cheryl later took to her Instagram page to confirm the news that she was cancelling her podcast in hopes that the time away from the spotlight would allow her to grieve in peace. 

“Hi, I hope you’re all doing great,” the Call My Name chart-topper wrote to her 3.5 million followers.

“I’ve seen some of your messages asking about the podcast with BBC Sounds and I wanted to let you all know that I decided not to record the last few episodes.

“It was to be recorded around the same time as Sarah’s passing.”

Before ending her message, Cheryl stressed that she was taking time off from all of her work commitments, including a performance at Birmingham Pride, saying that she hoped her listeners “understand” as she expressed gratitude for their kind messages. 

“I took a break from everything then including the series and it just didn’t feel right to revisit it again.”
