Kimberley, who is in a long-term relationship with former boyband star Justin Scott, will be the second Girls Aloud singer to become a mum. Nadine Coyle gave birth to her baby girl last month.

Kim's friend and bandmate Cheryl Cole was quick to congratulate the 'Strictly' star via Twitter.

Implying that she'd been keeping the secret, Chezza wrote: "FINALLY, I thought at one point I was going to burst."
