"Well I was, quite obviously, a bit shocked, you know," Payne told British radio station Magic FM of his reaction to the surprising news last August. And he's excited; he's very excited about what's going on with him at the moment." "And sometimes stuff happens like that," he added. You know, he's taking it very seriously, so it's all good." Payne's rep did not reply to a request for comment.
The 23-year-old singer took part in an #Ask Liam Twitter Q&A session on Saturday, and while he dodged questions about rumors that he's expecting his first child with girlfriend Cheryl Cole, he did admit to being one happy camper.
