Niall Horan on meeting Liam and Cheryl's baby

There's one important person who is yet to meet Liam Payne and Cheryl's baby boy - uncle Niall Horan!

The singer, who is currently enjoying a successful solo career while the boy band are on a break, said he has not yet had a chance to see his bandmate's new arrival due to various commitments, but is hoping to catch up with the proud new parents this week.

Liam and Cheryl welcomed their baby boy, Bear Payne, into the world in March.

Speaking to Lorraine on today's show, Niall said: "I'm going to try and see them this week actually as I haven't met the kid yet. I keep missing them.

"They're going to America, I'm coming back here and vice versa so I'm going to try and get down to them this week."

Talking about his fellow bandmates and a possible reunion, Niall said: "Everyone's great. Everyone's bringing out all sorts of different types of music and we're all doing it at the same time, which is great.

"It's a no brainer really. Also, it's only been a year and a half. A year and a half in a lifespan is not that long."

When asked about dealing with female attention, he said: "It's not as bad as you think. I'm quite reserved. Are you asking for my number? Because I wish you were."
