A friend of Cheryl Cole’s new man Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini has sparked rumours that the ‘X Factor’ judge is pregnant with her first baby, with comments he made during a radio interview this week.
Cheryl announced on Monday that after three months of dating, she and her French beau had decided to tie the knot, and now, if comments made by his pal - boxer Curtis Brown - are to be believed, they could be about to start a family.
During a radio interview this week, Curtis said, as quoted in The Sun: “JB don't get mad at me but your baby mama is hot. She's very gorgeous, she's a great singer. She's awesome - she rocks."
We’re not sure whether we’re more shocked at the potential pregnancy bombshell he may have just dropped, or the fact that someone actually referred to Cheryl Cole as a “great singer”. We jest.
Cheryl has never been shy about her desire to become a mother in the past, and told GQ magazine in an interview two years ago: “I know that is what I was put on Earth to do - to be a mother.”
Meanwhile, before the news of her secret wedding had even broken, a source told The Mirror that Cheryl would be willing to start a family with Jean-Bernard, saying: “It’s no secret she wants to settle down and have a family. Maybe this will be her chance.”
Since the news that Cheryl had walked down the aisle again was confirmed on Monday, it’s been claimed that the former Girls Aloud star is so smitten with her new hubby that she’s even planning on taking on his surname for official purposes - including when ‘The X Factor’ returns to screens later this year.
