Singer Nadine Coyle has announced that she is expecting a baby through the timeless medium of photo sharing site, Instagram. Irish Coyle teased fans by tweeting "This is the most Craic I have ever had!!!!! I need to jazz myself up to tell you all! Xxx" then following up a few hours later by posting an Instagram photo that showed a fuzzy image of the 28 year-old looking surprised and excited with the words "I am having a baby. Xx" written in fancy pink font over the top.

Did The News Come As A Shock?

Only Coyle herself knows for sure whose child it will be as she hasn't announced who the father of her child is yet, but it is suspected that he is American football player and former fiancé Jason Bell who has had an on/off relationship with the star. The pair reportedly reconciled earlier this year after a split. However, during their break, Nicole reportedly got together with Waz Ashayer, a club promoter, who she met at V Festival in a relationship that was serious enough to introduce him to her family.

Nadine, who is famous for having the best voice in girl pop group Girls Aloud and wearing more mascara than her eyelids can support, will become the first member of the band to have a baby. The group, who formed on reality television show, Popstars: The Rivals in 2002 have recently split up despite a level of success and fame that talent show contestants only rarely experience.

Their final performance was at Liverpool's Echo Arena on their tour, Ten: The Hits Tour, back in March. During London's O2 Arena leg of the concerts, Jason Bell jetted in to watch Nadine and the girls perform, sparking rumours that the couple were back together. Nadine, who owns an Irish pub in California, attempted to go solo  in 2010 because, let's face it, she was doing most of the legwork in Girls Aloud, but her debut, Insatiable, bombed, hitting 47th position on the UK charts at its peak.

On 4th August, Nadine subtly hinted on Twitter that she'd been having a pretty wild time recently, but didn't explain why: "Haaaiiiiiiiiii,,,,, I have had the wildest few months. No joke, since the end of the GA tour, wild I tell you, WILD!!!!!! Loads of luv.. Xxx." With current knowledge regarding the pregnancy, it wouldn't outrageous to suggest that perhaps a baby is the product of said "wild" times.
