Cheryl Cole and ex-husband Ashley spent the entire weekend together and have told friends they want to have children within two years, according to reports.
The Sun said that the pair, who divorced in September following allegations that the footballer had been unfaithful, went to a barbecue on Sunday, where they revealed to friends that they are looking into buying a property abroad.
The newspaper said that the couple also told friends that they want to have children together before the former X Factor judge turns 30.
A source was quoted as telling the newspaper: "For the first time in nine years Cheryl's looking at an empty diary.
"After the X Factor USA plans fell apart, she realised there wasn't much else in her life.
"She realised she had to embrace those closest to her - and Ashley remains the love of her life."
The England and Chelsea defender was smuggled into Cole's 28th birthday party on Friday night at a west London hotel.
According to reports, the pair were seen kissing and cuddling at the lavish bash.
The Sun said that the couple went on to share a "date night" on Saturday night.
A spokesman for the pop star said there was "no comment" on the reports.
