But if his latest Instagram post is anything to go by, Liam wants a bit more privacy.

He posted a picture of a road sign saying "Liam Ln", with a smaller one underneath it saying: "Private."

He captioned the post: "Stay in your lane."

Hmm...

Liam's fans have responded with messages saying how much they adore him.

One wrote: "I love you Liam."

And another gushed: "You're my everything baby."
