Liam Payne has admitted he might be missing his son Bear’s first birthday.
The former One Direction star shares son Bear Grey Payne with girlfriend Cheryl, and 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.”
It was recently revealed that Cheryl is planning a big chart comeback after taking a break from showbiz to focus on motherhood.
But she’s back in the studio and has penned a track about her son and being a mother to him, with record producer Naughty Boy revealing the song is “very personal” to the former X Factor judge.
“Cheryl has got back in the studio after having a baby and it’s still very personal, but she is a real artist and a perfectionist,” he told The Sun.
“She does up to 12 hours a day and I just feel that shows how ready she is. I can’t tell you the name of her track but it has been influenced by her son Bear.”
He added: “It has got more edge than anything she has done before. I feel it is going to be very special and meaningful.”
