The former Girls Aloud star has been discussing her close pal, Cheryl, wanting to spoil her baby as she awaits the arrival of her second child...

Kimberley Walsh has been speaking out about close pal Cheryl (and babies) amidst those pregnancy rumours.

Kimberley herself is currently pregnant with her second child, and has maintained a close relationship with her former Girls Aloud bandmate ever since the group parted ways back in 2013.

But when asked directly about Cheryl’s rumoured pregnancy, Kimberley chose neither to confirm nor deny, simply telling The Sun: ‘She’s one of my best friends and I never speak about her personal life.’

However, the 34-year-old did say that Cheryl was extremely excited about the arrival of her own baby, and that she had no doubt that her BFF would be spoiling her second bubba.

‘We spend lots of time together and they absolutely love Bobby so I have no doubt that they’ll spoil the new baby too!’ Kimberley said of her Girls Aloud girl gang.

Cheryl recently disabled her Instagram comments after walking the red carpet at the L’Oreal Paris Gold Obsession Party in Paris.

It’s rumoured that the constant speculation about her body shape and possibly pregnancy is taking its toll on the singer – and her fans have been nothing but sympathetic.

‘Upsets me that Cheryl felt the need to turn her Instagram comments off because of the unnecessary hate she is getting’, one concerned fan wrote on Twitter.

‘Breaks my heart that Cheryl has been forced to take her comments off, she absolutely doesn’t deserve the disgusting hate she’s getting’, read another.
