I hate leaving him because he gets so upset: Cheryl opens up about motherhood

Pop star Cheryl usually keeps her parenting life extremely private, but the singer has opened up about her adorable two-year-old son and the prospect of having more children.

The former X Factor judge shares her adorable son Bear with ex-boyfriend and One Direction star Liam Payne, but has confirmed that she would love to expand her family one day.

Speaking to The Mirror, she said: "I definitely want more children, I'd love another baby, but I don't know if it will happen now."

The mum normally keeps details about Bear highly private, rarely sharing any images or describing his personality. The Let You singer's relationship with Liam Payne has ended, but she still has hope for more children.

"But never say never, you never know what's around the corner. In terms of a girl or a boy, I think once you've had a baby all you wish for is a healthy baby, so I wouldn't mind," she said.

"I would like to think it'll happen one day but who knows."

Cheryl describes little Bear as 'so cute', and spoke about his confusion over her career and job while watching her on television;

"I don't think he really gets what I do for a job yet, but he knows that mammy goes off to work and he gets confused when he sees me on the telly," she explained.

"He doesn't understand how I can be in two places at once and he comes over to me and hugs me and says, 'Aww', like he's saying 'Well done'. It's so cute."

She continued: "When I was on The Greatest Dancer, he'd hear my voice and go running to the door thinking I was coming in.

"It's so heartbreaking, and I hate leaving him because he gets so upset. He was crying his eyes out when I left this morning," she added, expressing the difficulties of balancing motherhood with a career,

"My life has totally changed since Bear, I don't look at things in the same way any more. It's so hard to go out and leave him, but I try to always be there for him waking up and for bath-time and bed."
