AceShowbiz - Liam Payne is "scared" by the prospect of his son Bear following him into the music business.
The singer - who has Bear, four, with his ex Cheryl - admitted their boy is already showing signs of taking after his pop star parents.
Speaking to Heart's Mark Wright and Pandora Christie on Friday (08Oct21) as part of Global's Make Some Noise Day, Liam admitted he's unsure how to feel about it.
"Cheryl walked in the other day, and he was in his bedroom, it was about 9 o'clock, and he was supposed to be asleep - he'd set his iPad out on the floor, and you could see the little red line going - and she was like, 'What are you doing?'
"And he was like, 'I'm recording a song, can you not see?' And he was going (sings) 'like a sunshine.' So funny."
"He really has (got the music buzz). I mean, it scares me a little bit because I know what that can do to you and, in certain places with things."
"Like, you almost know too much from my side if you know what I mean, but I'd never stop him doing what he wanted to do and he absolutely loves."
Bear is already showing a passion for performing, and he even took over during one of Cheryl's rehearsals.
Liam added, "I mean, he went to rehearsal with her the other week for her show that she put on and he stole the microphone off, he went topless, he had the dancers dancing around. He's obsessed with The Weeknd and Ariana Grande."
