While she’s yet to confirm whether or not she’s expecting, Jean-Bernard - who she divorced earlier this year - has now admitted that he heard about her alleged pregnancy in the news.
He told ES magazine: “It’s a great thing to have babies. There are so many sad things these days, if everyone was creating life, the world would be a better place.”
And although he and Cheryl are no longer together, Jean-Bernard is keen to show he has no hard feelings towards his ex, and the time they spent together.
The restaurateur continued: “I liked the chemistry we had. I’m sure if you’ve watched her on TV you can see she has a great sense of humour.
“Things happen and sometimes you have to follow your heart. If you observe society, everybody is thinking — they should feel more.”
Cheryl and Jean-Bernard tied the knot in a private ceremony in 2014, following a whirlwind romance of just a few months.
Cheryl has not commented on her rumoured pregnancy so far, but told Fabulous magazine last month: “I am happier than I’ve ever been before. Now is a very good time in my life.
“I know you can tell exactly what is going on with me. My eyes give everything away. I can’t ever hide my emotions, and it’s great that you can see I’m really happy.”
