Kimberley Walsh has announced she is expecting a third boy after doing a gender-reveal party for her sons.

The Girls Aloud singer is 30 weeks pregnant with her third baby with husband Justin Scott and for the first time they decided to find out what they were having before the birth, staging a sweet gender reveal for their children Bobby and Cole.

Walsh and Scott set off a blue confetti cannon in a photoshoot with OK! magazine for the six- and four-year-old, who were thrilled to discover they were getting a new brother.

The 39-year-old star told OK!: "Honestly, at this stage, and at the age I'm at, I just want a healthy baby. It's just such a relief."

Walsh's sister Sally is also pregnant at the moment and expecting her fourth boy, but although the singer joked that they would have a football team between them, she said her sons would be more likely to follow in her career footsteps.

She said: “They’re not really into football, they’re a bit more creative and performance-y, so I think a boyband is highly likely!”

Walsh also talked about how proud she was of her Girls Aloud bandmate Sarah Harding, who is currently battling breast cancer, calling her an "amazing woman".

She said she hoped Harding would be able to meet her family's new addition when she feels well enough and coronavirus restrictions allow.

“That would be great if we can make it work," Walsh said.

"She’s desperate to come and see the boys, and as soon as she’s ready that’ll be the first thing we will get in the diary.”

Harding recently penned autobiography Hear Me Out in which she detailed her years in the girl group, including falling out with her bandmates and their recent reunion.

She has also released previously unheard track Wear It Like A Crown, recorded 10 years ago, with profits going to the NHS cancer centre where she has been receiving treatment.
