Kimberly Walsh has revealed that her former Girls Aloud bandmate Cheryl was one of the first people to meet her newborn baby.

Walsh welcomed her second baby, Cole, with husband Justin Scott in December and said that Cheryl was "desperate" to meet the newborn.

"She came the next day and was desperate to meet him," she said.

"She loved him. She lives nearby, which is really nice. They had lovely cuddles."

Cheryl, who dropped her previous surnames of Tweedy, Cole and Fernandez-Versini to be known simply as Cheryl, is reportedly expecting a child with pop star boyfriend Liam Payne.

Walsh (35) joked she and her husband may end up celebrating their first wedding anniversary "in bed with the TV and sicky muslins".

Walsh and Scott, a property developer and former boy band star, discovered they were expecting their second child just weeks after their wedding.

She told Hello! magazine of their January 30 anniversary: "If it's anything like New Year, we'll be in bed with the TV and sicky muslins.

"But we had the most amazing wedding and to now have two beautiful, healthy sons is wonderful enough, so whatever we do, I'll be happy."

The couple are also parents to two-year-old son Bobby, who she said was delighted to meet his baby brother, and did "a little victory dance and was running around, singing 'My baby brother!'".

"I really wanted a little brother for Bobby, close in age, so I'm over the moon to have our two beautiful boys," she added.
