Nadine Coyle first hit our screens as a young hopeful on the television talent show Popstars: The Rivals, where she won a place in Girls Aloud – the multi-platinum, multi-award-winning girl group with hits including Sound of the Underground and Something Kinda Oooh.
This year sees Nadine celebrate her 15th anniversary in the industry. She is currently in the studio with new music due to be released later this year. Nadine is also marking 2017 with an impassioned commitment as our new Spectacle Wearer of the Year ambassador. We stole the Derry-born beauty away for a quick chat during a fabulous photoshoot to promote the annual charity competition.
How long have you worn glasses?About a year. I started getting headaches while I was driving, and both my mum and my partner Jason (former American footballer and father to their daughter Anaiya, three) said that I should have my eyes tested.
How have you adapted to wearing glasses?I love it. I have always loved wearing sunglasses. so it feels very natural.
How do glasses fit with your lifestyle?Really easily. I like to have neutral tone glasses that can go with anything. Now when I leave the house, it’s keys, phone, purse, lip balm and glasses!
How would you describe your style?My style is classic but depending on what I am up to, I will add a touch of glamour for a night out. When I go through my wardrobe, I can see how much my style has changed and evolved over the years. I am now more aware of things that suit me rather than falling for the hottest new trend.
What are your top style tips?Wear what you feel comfortable in and what brings out your personal style. That way you will feel more confident.
How important is the charity element for you?It is so important! Kidscape is a fantastic charity and the fact that it receives £1 for each entry is just tremendous. Kidscape works tirelessly to help prevent bullying and I believe that all children should be able to grow up without fearing bullies or abuse.
How do you feel about being this year’s Specsavers Spectacle Wearer of the Year ambassador?It’s such an honour, I am so proud! I attended last year’s event and received an award for Best Newcomer. It’s a great feel-good campaign and the awards evening is a spec-tacular, fun event!
A lovely first blog post for this year, Kimberley has so kindly allowed Hello magazine into her home for an exclusive introduction to Baby Cole <3
The sweet video shows baby Cole being cradled by his mum and dad in between photos. Kimberley and Justin’s older son Bobby, two, also proudly doted on his new baby brother.
The siblings’ first encounter went much more smoothly than anticipated, Kimberley revealed in the exclusive interview, out now in HELLO! magazine.
“When Justin brought him in, Bobby started doing this little victory dance and was running around, singing ‘My baby brother!'” Kimberley tells HELLO! “Then he bent down by his car seat and went, ‘Aw, coochy, coochy, coo’. It was very sweet.”
“I really wanted a little brother for Bobby, close in age, so I’m over the moon to have our two beautiful boys,” she added.
Baby Cole has also been introduced to Kimberley’s best friend Cheryl. “She came the next day and was desperate to meet him. She loved him,” said Kimberley. “She lives nearby, which is really nice. They had lovely cuddles.”
Kimberley, 35, and her husband Justin welcomed their second baby in mid-December. Confirming the news to HELLO!, the singer said: “We’re all so happy, Bobby’s so excited to be a big brother.”

Kimberley Walsh, who is about to give birth to her second child, has got her sights set on a rather bootylicious babysitter for her first child. “[Beyoncé] could teach Bobby some moves and have him prepped for a global tour by the time I got home. He’s already really musical so he would love it.”
Wouldn’t we all, Kimberley?
We caught up with the gorgeous mum-to-be while she was busy juggling mum duties with supporting the Pampers UNICEF 2016 #1pack1vaccine campaign, where Pampers have pedged to donate one vaccine for every one pack of nappies, bought.
Kimberley says: “Being involved with the Pampers campaign to eliminate maternal and newborn tetenus means a lot to me. All we want to do is protect our babies, and I really feel for those mothers who don’t have the choices we do to keep our babies safe.”
