‘It feels ready to pop’: Pregnant Kimberley Walsh, 39, has sweetly said she ‘can’t wait’ to meet her baby before welcoming her third son with husband Justin Scott

Speak with The mirror, said the former Girls Aloud singer: “He’s a very strong little thing, I feel like I get a little beat up all day with all his kicks, but I love it because it’s reassuring to know that he squirms. It feels ready to pop.’

Kimberley is due to go into labor in early June and she said none of her previous children—Bobby, six, and Cole, four—arrived on time.

And she hopes her current pregnancy doesn’t stall, because despite having the “easiest time,” she’s been feeling “done” over the past few weeks.

Kimberley also discussed the excitement of being pregnant at the same time as her sisters — even if sister Amy was only pregnant as her character in Emmerdale.

The singer said she and her older sister Sally helped their younger sibling Amy prepare for her on-screen delivery.

Kimberley said that while her sister’s character on the show was pregnant, she sent pictures of her fake bump, which was “bizarre.”

She told the publication: ‘We’ve all been pregnant, me and my older sister in real life and my younger sister on screen. She was constantly sending us pictures of her fake bump, it was actually a bit bizarre.’

Kimberley added: “Sally and I have had enough babies between us to help her with the birth scenes, which she did – amazing. We’ve been able to explain the pain and the fear of it all very well.’

Though she’s expecting her baby any minute, Kimberley said her two sons Bobby and Cole are arguably more impatient when their sibling is born.

She said that as time for kids seems to be passing at a different pace, she’s had to calm down her sons by telling them it’s only a few more weekends before they can meet their little brother.

When it came time to give birth, Kimberley admitted she hopes for a natural birth but that neither she nor her husband Justin Scott, 38, are ready for a frenzied battle to the hospital.

Kimberley also said that while it would have been nice to give birth to a girl, she’s happy with another boy because she now knows how their minds work — especially now that her sister also has her fourth son.

After making a name for herself as a singer, the star said she was happy to find that her son Bobby has a natural affinity for singing – but added that she would allow him to form his own opinion about his career.

Kimberley said she and her former bandmates recently got together to support Sarah Harding, who was diagnosed with breast cancer last year.
