With Cheryl Cole going solo from pop group Girls Aloud and her band mate following suit, you’d think a battle for the number one spot would be on their hands. Not quite, as the battle is on something closer to home – a baby!
Bookies Paddy Power have revealed that the favourite to win another kind of race, the baby kind, is the Irish singer Nadine Coyle. The 23-year-old songstress beat Cheryl Cole with her 2/1 odds compared to Cheryl’s 5/2.
With the X-Factor judge happily married to footballer Ashley Cole and having recently spoken out about her desire to have a baby, it’s surprising that Nadine, who is dating US soccer player Jason Bell, topped the bets on becoming a mum.
The fellow Girls Aloud members also featured on the baby race betting list with Kimberley Walsh, 28, coming in at 11/4, Nicola Roberts, 24, at 4/1 and 29-year-old Sarah Harding at 6/1.
“Cheryl has made no secret of the fact that she’d love to start a family but her and Ashley have had their fair share of problems this year while Nadine has enjoyed a stress free romance,” Sharon McHugh from Paddy Power said.
