Pregnant Nadine Coyle In Jason Bell Reunion
Girls Aloud singer Nadine Coyle has told of her shock on learning she was pregnant in the summer.
Coyle revealed she was expecting in August but did not confirm the identity of the father, leading to speculation about his identity.
But in an interview with Hello! she confirmed she has reunited with her ex-fiance Jason Bell, a former American football player, and he is the dad.
Coyle, who is five months pregnant, said: "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. So this clears it up!'"
Derry-born Coyle explained she had not been as keen as some of her bandmates to have children.
She said: "I think I was the least likely to be the first to have a baby... it would always come up.
"A couple of the other 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."
Girls Aloud called it a day after a recent tour, but Coyle said she hoped that at some point they would team up again.
She said: "I didn't want it to end - but the sequins, the wings and a bump wouldn't have been a good look.
"I loved the reunion and hopefully one day we will get back together to do something else."
