Cheryl's family plans: 'The time is just not right'
Cheryl Cole has been forced to delay plans to have a baby after husband Ashley’s misdemeanours earlier this month have made the pop princess think twice.
The Chelsea footballer was in hot water after being arrested for swearing at police and being photographed next to a blonde woman at a restaurant in South Kensington, London. Meanwhile Cheryl was hitting the headlines for an altogether different reason – her bid to climb Mount Kilimanjaro for Comic Relief.
Now the X Factor judge has reportedly made a decision to put all plans of having a family on hold until a time when she feels the pair’s marriage foundations are firmly set.
Ashley’s latest transgression left Cheryl in tears, according to reports, and friends say she now feels forced to put any thoughts of starting a family on the backburner.
A close friend claimed: ‘She has had to reconsider the whole baby plan now. She feels the time is just not right.
‘It is really hard for her because she wants a family more than anything in the world, but she is a clever girl and won’t bring a baby into this world until both her and Ash are ready. He has a lot of proving to do before then.’
The star pairing have had a testing time since the start of their marriage and were pushed to the brink last year over allegations Ashley had cheated on the Girls Aloud singer with hairdresser Aimee Walton.
Earlier this year Cheryl admitted in a magazine interview that the fallout from the infidelity was ‘horrendous’ saying: ‘Ashley’s young and he’s got a young mentality – for his age anyway.’
Let’s hope the Chelsea star wises up before too long…
