LIAM Payne has been seen with his ex Cheryl for the first time in three years.
The former couple – who share son Bear – were pictured attending a family party together in Wolverhampton last week.
Liam, 27, and Cheryl, 37, split in 2018 after two years of dating and just over a year after their son was born but have remained on great terms.
Earlier this year Liam, who has recently split from his fiance Maya Henry, admitted they were “closer than they had ever been”.
Speaking to Glamour, Liam said: "Cheryl is literally the best person to co-parent with. No stress involved. It's very, very relaxed, and we spend a lot of time on FaceTime.
"And it's been really lovely, and I'm closer to them than I've ever been before, actually, which is really, really nice.
"But bedtime FaceTime can go really well sometimes. Or I bought him some toys yesterday that I showed them on the FaceTime and it was like I had to go and travel over and hand the toys over the fence!"
Cheryl had also alluded to how well they get on as she revealed they would be spending Christmas together last year.
She said: "It'll probably just be me, my mum and Liam.
"My mam makes a great roast, and Liam normally does the meat on Christmas. He's really good at it actually and puts his all into it.
"We watch Home Alone the movie. I love it. I think it's because it reminds me of when I was a kid. I love mulled wine.”
Cheryl, who moved out of ex Liam's Surrey mansion when they split, now lives with Bear in Buckinghamshire.
Liam is currently renting a £5million seven-bed mansion nearby.
Following his split from Maya, it was reported that Cheryl had been “his voice of reason” during the tough time.
An insider said: "It was Cheryl, who was telling him that if he wasn’t happy, then he needed to ‘grow a set’ and speak out.
"She saw it as her responsibility to be the voice of reason, as Liam’s choices have a direct impact on Bear."
