Payne has been busy promoting his new album and in a new interview with French website On The Move, he repeatedly calls Cheryl his wife during a conversation about writing as a father.
He also discusses working with Pharrell when his wife was pregnant so the words have been been translated incorrectly.
‘To be honest with you I don’t know yet what it is like to write while being a father, I have not passed through this experience,’ he said.
‘I have something that I’m preparing with Timbaland and I was writing with Pharrell when his wife was pregnant along with my wife for that matter. They had triplets and it’s amazing.’
