The 23-year-old is currently in LA to work on his new album and was talking to fans while leaving tattoo artist Dr Woo's studio opening at the The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.

Meanwhile his girlfriend Cheryl is in London, where they welcomed their son at the Chelsea and Westminster hospital last month.


Liam announced the birth on Instagram with a photo of himself holding the newborn, writing, "My close friends and family know there are very few times when I'm left speechless... wow!

"I'm incredibly happy to welcome our new baby boy into the world, it's a moment that I will never forget for the rest of my life and my favourite memory I have so far. I'm completely in awe of his incredible mother and how she has been the whole way through this, she's really made my dreams come true."

Liam added: "We haven't named him yet but he's already capturing hearts including mine. I feel very blessed. Happy Mother's Day everyone!"

The happy couple still haven't announced their son's name, but fans are speculating that it's Jackson because of Harry Styles's latest tattoo.
