Cheryl admits being a working mum is heartbreaking: ‘I hate leaving him’

The singer has opened up about life as a working mother


Cheryl has opened up about motherhood, and how she finds juggling her work and home life.

The former X Factor judge, who shares her two-year-old son Bear with ex-boyfriend Liam Payne, has admitted that her son gets confused when he sees her on TV.

“I don’t think he really gets [what I do for a job] yet, but he knows that mammy goes off to work and he gets confused when he sees me on the telly,” Cheryl told the UK Mirror.

“He doesn’t understand how I can be in two places at once and he comes over to me and hugs me and says, ‘Aww’, like he’s saying ‘Well done’. It’s so cute.”

Although Cheryl admitted that it’s “cute”, the songstress said it can break her heart too.

She explained: “When I was on The Greatest Dancer, he’d hear my voice and go running to the door thinking I was coming in.

“It’s so heartbreaking, and I hate leaving him because he gets so upset. He was crying his eyes out when I left this morning.”

Cheryl added: “My life has totally changed since Bear, I don’t look at things in the same way any more. It’s so hard to go out and leave him, but I try to always be there for him waking up and for bathtime and bed.”

When asked if she’d like to have more kids in the future, the 35-year-old said:¬†“I definitely want more children, I’d love another baby, but I don’t know if it will happen now.”

“But never say never, you never know what’s around the corner… I would like to think it’ll happen one day but who knows.”
