GIRLS Aloud star Nadine Coyle has told of her shock at finding she was pregnant – and said she always believed she was the least likely of her bandmates to have a baby first.
Coyle revealed she was expecting next summer, but did not say who the father was, leading to speculation about his identity.
Coyle, who is five months pregnant, told 'Hello!' Magazine: "I think we just forgot to tell everyone we were together.
"When I said I was pregnant I thought, 'Why's everyone wondering who it is? Then I remembered, 'Oh yes, that's right. I do stuff on TV and people are confused'. This clears it up!"
Derry-born Coyle explained she had not been as keen as some of her bandmates to have children.
"I think I was the least likely to be the first to have a baby. A couple of the girls had wanted babies for a long time, but I said 'no way'. It was definitely a shock, but I was really, really happy."
Bell said: "I've never felt excitement like this in my whole life. Knowing we're having a baby takes it to another level."
