Cheryl says her “world changed” when she became a mother

“When you’re a mum, the day floats away!”

Cheryl has said she has a new perspective on life since the birth of her son.

The former Girls Aloud star is mum to four-year-old Bear, who she shares with One Direction’s Liam Payne.

Speaking to Women’s Health UK, she said:

“I have a completely different perspective now that I’m responsible for another human.

“I care less about silly stuff and more about the important things in life, like Bear’s health and happiness.”

Cheryl and Liam dated from 2016-2018 and have remained good friends since their split, successfully co-parenting Bear.

The star admitted she rarely has time to exercise these days as she finds Bear keeps her really busy and her schedule completely revolves around him.

“After dropping Bear off at nursery, I do my work calls and housework, and then it’s time to pick him up.

“Exercise isn’t top of my priority list at the moment – I haven’t done anything regularly for over a year – but I recently bought a Peloton spin bike.

“I’ve used it a few times and I enjoy it, especially with the music. But when you’re a mum, the day floats away, so I don’t get to use it that often.”

She went on to reveal that meditation has really helped her to maintain inner peace and improved her mental health.

“Meditation has changed my life,” she said.

“I do it every evening and sometimes during the day for at least 20 minutes at a time while my son Bear is at nursery.

“I used to use the apps Insight Timer and Calm to guide me, but now I know what I’m doing.”
