Kimberley Walsh Gives Birth To Baby Boy, Bobby, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini And Nicola Roberts Tweet Their Support

Kimberley Walsh has given birth to a baby boy, the Girls Aloud star has confirmed on her Twitter page.

Kimberley and her long-term boyfriend Justin Scott welcomed their “perfect” son, Bobby, into the world on Thursday afternoon, with the singer breaking her happy news to the world with a tweet the following day.

Kimberley’s former bandmates Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Nicola Roberts have both shared their excitement at the latest addition into the Girls Aloud family, and it seems they’re both emotional over the arrival of their good friend’s first baby, with them both tweeting crying Emojis:

The couple first announced their baby joy back in February with - you guessed it! - a tweet on Kimberley’s official page.

Kimberley later revealed that Chezza was so overcome with emotion when she first heard about the baby news that she burst into tears (though having seen her on ‘The X Factor’, we all know it doesn’t take much…).

Meanwhile, Kimba showed off her growing baby bump at the High Street Fashion Awards in London earlier this year.

The former ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ contestant is the second member of Girls Aloud to become a mum, after Nadine Coyle gave birth to her daughter Anaíya earlier this year.
