Liam Payne Bio

Liam James Payne was born in Wolverhampton, England to Geoff and Karen payne. He’s got two older sisters called Nicola and Ruth. He was born 3 weeks early and as a result had a few health issues. The first four years of his life were spent in and out of hospitals, getting regular tests done.

Doctors noticed that one of Liam’s kidneys was scarred and not functioning properly, however in 2012 Liam found out that his kidney had actually started functioning properly again!

Liam is the third oldest member of One Direction and first auditioned for The X Factor in 2008 at just 14 years old. He impressed judges made it all the way to boot camp but Simon thought he was too young at the time and asked him to re-audition in a few years time.

Two years later, Liam re-auditioned in Birmingham when he was 16 years old. His audition song was ‘Cry Me a River’ by Justin Timberlake and the audience gave him a standing ovation after his performance. At boot camp, Liam sang ‘Stop Crying Your Heart Out’ by Oasis but didn’t make it through as a solo artist. He was then however chosen by the judges to become part of One Direction.

Full nameLiam James Payne
BornAugust 29, 1993
HometownWolverhampton, West Midlands
NicknamePaynee, Daddy Direction
FamilyGeoff Payne, father
Karen Payne, mother
Nicola Payne, sister
Ruth Payne, sister

From six years old, Liam noticed that he had a great ability to sing, and would often sing for relatives or at karaoke.

His heart however was set on becoming an Olympic runner, and he was a member of the Wolverhampton and Bilston Athletics Clubs. Each day Liam would get up at 5am to run five miles before school!

Lucky for us that he decided to concentrate on his singing!
