Liam Payne enjoyed an evening watching UFC with Cheryl’s brother and her nephews in London on St Patrick’s Day, 17 March 2018.
The former One Direction superstar spent some quality time with his in-laws, including Cheryl’s big brother Joe and her adorable teenage nephews.
Twitter account Cheriam News shared a photo of the group of lads and captioned it: “@LiamPayne with @CherylOfficial’s brother and nephews at #UFCLondon at the O2 Last night”
But the night out with A-Lister Liam was a rare public appearance for Cheryl’s notoriously shy brother Joe, who is not often seen gracing big profile events with his famous sister.
He lives in Heaton where the siblings grew up, and owns a tattoo shop, Timeless Body Art in Byker.
The family’s united front comes amid reports that Liam – who shares son Bear Grey Payne with Cheryl –might miss his son’s first birthday when the little tot turns one on March 22.

But Liam revealed to his fans that he will be travelling on his child’s milestone to perform a gig in Japan.
He shared a throwback picture on his Instagram page to his 15.6million followers featuring his former One Direction bandmates, Harry Styles,Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan.
“This time next week I’ll be on my way to Japan! I’ve got some amazing memories from Japan, can’t wait to be back #TBT,” he wrote.
It’s not the first big milestone the 24 year old has missed since becoming a father in 2017. Liam previously missed out on his first Father’s Day as he was abroad working on his solo album.
Speaking at the time, Harry Styles bandmate said: “Oh I’m actually away for Father’s Day, I’m working which is really, really sad but it’s my first one obviously so it’s amazing.
“I feel so blessed and there’s definitely going to be a lot of FaceTime that day I reckon.”
