Cheryl Cole has extended her well wishes to former Girls Aloud bandmate Nadine Coyle amid her baby news.
Former Girls Aloud star Nadine Coyle is expecting her first child.
The Jump singer announced the news by posting a picture of herself online with the caption: "I'm having a baby."
And the singer has been inundated with messages of congratulations from her fans -- and even former bandmate Cheryl Cole.
Nadine (28) has yet to confirm who the father is, but it's thought to be on/off boyfriend and ex-fiance Jason Bell, with whom she reconciled earlier this year.
The Derry woman dated the American footballer for three years but announced their split in June 2011.
But in March Jason jetted to the UK to watch her perform with Girls Aloud at the O2 -- fuelling speculation they were back together.
Cheryl Cole wrote online: "NADINE IS HAVING A BABY!!! OMG. I can't contain my excitement, she is going to be such an amazing mum and the little one will be the baby of a member of girls aloud!! WOW!!"
During the break in Nadine and Jason's relationship, she started seeing club promoter Waz Ashayer.
The pair were still together in early 2013, but split after Nadine brought him to meet her friends and family in Derry.
Fans of Girls Aloud were surprised when they announced their split in March. And Nadine was fuming with the decision.
"You should know by now I had no part in any of this split business. I couldn't stop them. I had the best time & want to keep going." she wrote on Twitter.
Nadine admits she had a wild few months after the band went their separate ways.
At the beginning of August, she wrote on Twitter: "Haaaiiiiiiiiii, I have had the wildest few months. No joke, since the end of the GA tour, wild I tell you, WILD!!!!!! Loads of luv.. Xxx."
She will be the first member of the Girls Aloud stars to have a baby.
