And now, the doting new dad has revealed just how the incredibly popular pair came to be.

The One Direction hunk has thanked none other than his own bandmate Niall Horan for "playing cupid" – alongside X Factor boss Simon Cowell.

While Liam auditioned on the X Factor at the age of 14, he admitted he didn’t have his eye on Cheryl until he was older.

When asked if their romance was something he'd always thought of, Liam told Radio 1Xtra: "It wasn’t something I definitely planned out.

"I wish I could say I was that confident – I wasn’t," he added.

"It just came about one day. Niall came up to me and said, ‘You’ll never guess who’s got a crush on you?’ And I was like, ‘Who?’ He’s like, ‘Cheryl’."

Liam went on to say that Simon Cowell himself also helped out in getting the pair together.

"Niall hooked it up," Liam added. "Simon kind of half hooked it up. I was saying something about Cheryl one night in (Simon’s) house, and he was like, 'I think I know who is going to be the future Mrs Payne’, and I was like 'Who are you on about?'

"He was like, 'I’m not telling you, you’ll have to wait and see'".

Liam added that Simon later embarrassed Cheryl by telling her that 23-year-old Liam was keen on her.
