Cheryl has admitted that she feared her son Bear would be “swapped” with another baby after she gave birth.
The former Girls Aloud star welcomed her first child with her now ex-boyfriend Liam Payne back in March 2017.
The 36-year-old gave birth at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London, but was scared to hand her baby over to hospital staff.
Speaking on a new episode of Ru Paul and Michelle Visage’s podcast What’s The Tee, Cheryl said: “When I had him, first of all I wouldn’t let the doctors take him out of the room.”
“I read this story about two girls being swapped at birth and it was playing on my mind. I was so irrational… I didn’t want anyone to take him.”
The podcast episode was uploaded this week to mark Cheryl’s guest appearance on Drag Race UK.
Cheryl got candid during her chat with Ru and Michelle, and spoke about everything from motherhood, to changing her name following her two failed marriages.
Following her appearance on Drag Race UK, Michelle was forced deny claims that she “hates” Cheryl, after viewers sensed tension between them.
