Could Cheryl Fernandez-Versini be expecting a baby in the New Year?

This year’s X Factor has been pretty successful so far for Cheryl Fernandez-Versini with her much-loved act Reggie and Bollie making it all the way to the semi-finals. But with so much speculation over her skinny appearance on the show, we can reveal that the 32-year old judge is hoping to turn things around in 2016. Once The X Factor finishes she’s due to take a well-earned break with her husband Jean-Bernard, 34, who’s been absent from the studios this year as he focuses on his businesses overseas. A friend close to her tells us: ‘Cheryl just wants to get away from it all and that means going a lot further than Newcastle. JB has many business ventures, so it could be as far as St Bart’s. She wants lots of real quality time with JB and the opportunity to switch off – that’s what she’s dreaming of.

‘She’s learnt the hard way that if you don’t take some time completely to yourself you’ll end up being eaten alive by fame. JB supports her completely, as always. The bottom line is, he wants his wife back. He’s lost a lot family-wise this past year and those experiences make marriage all the more precious.’

JB’s parents own a hotel in St Bart’s so it would be the perfect destination for her to be able to really relax and unwind.

It’s not just time away with her husband she’s looking forward to. Could 2016 be the year Cheryl fulfils her dream of a family? Our source tells us: ‘Cheryl feels it’s high time they started building their own legacy. Ever since her friend Kimberley Walsh had little Bobby last year, she’s been champing at the bit for a baby of her own.’ But don’t expect her to put her professional feet up completely. With talk of a Girls Aloud reunion and the launch of her own fashion line, Cheryl has plenty to keep her busy.
