“It’s just picking up the pieces, the corner pieces of this puzzle, to make this perfect family life.”
The 24 year old added: “In every other aspect of the way my life works, everything’s eccentric: you can go out to the shops and buy loads of things or you can go to a random country for the day.
“It’s all weird, so why would my relationship ever blend in to what society thinks anyway? Because the whole of my life is nuts. So it’s just putting all of that bag of nuts-ness together and making it work.”
He also revealed why the pair have decided not to share pictures of their little one, with Liam only offering tiny glimpses of his son.

“Rather than being pictured and being put in places, I wanna give him the chance [of his own life]. If I take it away from him now, he never has the chance to go back,” he said.
Liam previously admitted to having problems in his romance with the former Girls Aloud singer after it was rumoured the pair were close to splitting.
“The funniest thing was a week before we were getting married. The next week we’re splitting up,” he told ES Magazine.
“And the thing for me is, I just like to think we’re somewhere in the middle. You know, we have our struggles — like of course I’m not gonna sit here and say that everything’s absolutely fine and dandy, because of course you go through different things, and that’s what a relationship is.
“But we go through them together as a family and that’s the most important thing for me.”
