They celebrated the birth of first child Bear almost 14-months ago.
But Liam Payne admits he is in no hurry to exchange vows with girlfriend Cheryl as the shared responsibility of raising their young son is currently the couple’s primary focus.
The One Direction star, 24, has faced increasing speculation over the state of his relationship with former Girls Aloud singer Cheryl, 34, but while they are happy he remains adamant that marriage is not in their immediate future.
‘I don’t feel like I need to go to that step to feel any differently about how I do about my relationship,’ he told SiriusXM’s The Morning Mash Up.
‘I feel like we’re in a very comfortable place right now and, like, having my son means more to me than anything to me in the world. So you know, it’s not really like we need to take that next step.’
Talking SykeOnAir, Liam said his little boy was now up and on his feet, but he previously said it had been a struggle for him to learn.

'He's so tall, he's like lanky. He's blowing around the place. He gets really frustrated.'
Liam and Cheryl dote on their pride and joy so much, that they even turn to him to be a music critic when it comes to their pop music.
According to CheriamNews, Liam told ABC Radio: 'He is like a good bop check... if it's a bop, he will go for it.
Boss Baby! CheriamNews reported that Liam said in a recent interview that his young lad critiques all his and Cheryl's music
'We play all these different songs and he's like the boss right now - he's Boss Baby!'
'Just hanging out going, "Yeah, I like that one, but this one doesn't really do it for me".'
Liam is currently promoting his latest single, Familiar, a collaboration with J Balvin and Cheryl is back in the studio recording new tracks.
But on Tuesday, Liam revealed that being in One Direction 'nearly killed him', and the idea of becoming famous in his solo venture was just as petrifying.
The singer - who first found fame at 14 when he appeared on The X-Factor - admitted he worried about carving out a solo career when the boy band went on hiatus in 2015 because he wasn't sure he still wanted to be 'famous'.
Asked to recall his hardest emotional battle, Liam - who performed in One Direction alongside Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and previously, Zayn Malik - confessed: 'I've had a few, there have been some tough times.'
Talking to KISS FM for their Where's Your Head At? campaign, Liam explained:
'When the band started our break I struggled with the idea of becoming famous again, it scared the living daylights out of me. Because the last time it nearly killed me, frankly.
'So I had to figure out a way to make it work for me - rather than me work for it.'
