Nadine Coyle and Jason Bell are excited about parenthood

Nadine Coyle has revealed it was a bit of a shock to find out she was expecting.

The Girls Aloud star announced she was pregnant in August, but didn’t reveal the dad.

Now she’s confirmed that her baby’s father is on-off-on love Jason Bell, 35.

A couple of the other girls had wanted babies for a long time but I said no way… It was definitely a shock, but I was really, really happy,’ Nadine, 28, tells Hello!

She and former American football player Jason – who is divorced from wife Kimberly – started dating in 2008, became engaged in September 2010, but split in June 2011.

They were first spotted together again in March this year.
