Liam spoke to The Mirror, promoting his new single "Strip That Down," and revealed that the controversial ten-year age gap between the pair is what nearly made Cheryl let him go.
Obivously, things worked out just fine, and that seems to be thanks to Liam begging her not to leave.
"There's one song that is basically a phone call that happened between me and her when she was about to let it go," he reveals. "This is a long time ago. And it's basically me trying to cling on and say, 'No, no, no it's going to work out - don't worry about it, give it time."
A baby later and they seem like they're genuinely pretty happy, and Cheryl is encouraging Liam to travel around the world to promote his new music.
"She's like, 'You've got to go out and do your job, do your job.' That's how she is with it and Bear's beautiful and I love him and I miss him terribly."
AH, cuteness overload.
