Cheryl got emotional over Kimberley's baby news

Kimberley Walsh and Cheryl Cole clearly know each other inside out.

Pregnant Kimberley – who is expecting her first child with boyfriend Justin Scott – has revealed that Cheryl, 30, figured out she was expecting before she even had to tell her.

I popped round to see her in mid-January and she knew straight away,’ says Kimberley, 32.

She was like: “So what’s new with you? Have you got any news?” I said there was news and she knew straight away that’s what it was!

She burst into tears of joy, which was no surprise as she’s so emotional, but it was a really cute reaction.’

Cheryl shared a sweet picture on Instagram of when she found out, showing her cuddling Kimberley‘s stomach, and it sounds like the touching moment went on for some time.

She was hugging the baby,’ says Kimberley.

She’s so cute. We literally hugged for about 10 minutes. She cried, I cried and then there was the excitement.

She started telling me she wanted to come to the scan, she wanted to do this and that and I had to really rein her back in!

I told her it was very early days still.’
