Liam Payne revealed he was closer than ever to his ex and baby mama Cheryl.
Liam has been happily engaged to his model girlfriend Maya Henry since he popped the question with a ring rumoured to be worth three million last year.
Maya has been a great support to him as he continues to co-parent with his famous ex Cheryl.
The Bedroom Floor pop star let slip the exes had been spending a lot of time together on FaceTime while co-parenting their little boy Bear, four.
As well as lockdown, the duo have juggled co-parenting.
In a gushing interview, Liam admitted it was “really, really nice” that the exes had been able to get along and there was “no stress involved”.
He told Glamour : “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!”
It’s been an incredibly difficult year for everyone during the lockdowns amid the coronavirus pandemic.
While Liam admitted it has been a “difficult year”, he revealed he had become closer to his ex and their son than ever before.
Liam and Cheryl’s romance crumbled in 2018 after their two-year love story.
The couple had first crossed paths when Liam was 14 and auditioned on The X Factor where Cheryl was a judge.
Their paths reconnected years later and their connection blossomed into love.
In 2019, Liam admitted fatherhood “spooked” him early on because he was so young.
He said on Sky One documentary Ant Middleton & Liam Payne: Straight Talking: “Becoming a dad at such a young age, it’s such a difficult thing.
“And I think I built fatherhood up so much in my head that it kind of messed me to up start with. I started in a bad place with it.
“I think it spooked me out early on, and I was just worried I would not be enough to look after the both of them.”
