Partner pops big question to Girls Aloud songstress Nadine Coyle ... again


Former Girls Aloud songstress Nadine Coyle was left stunned by a surprise wedding proposal from her American footballer boyfriend.

It was a very special Christmas for the pregnant singer from Londonderry as partner Jason Bell got down on one knee and popped the question.

It's second time lucky for the on-off couple, who were engaged for a year between 2010 and 2011, before briefly splitting up.

They famous pair had dated for three years before they announced their one-year engagement had officially ended in June 2011.

At the time Nadine (28) said she felt she wanted a "bit more 'me' time" before they could fully commit to getting married.

But now, it seems the pair are ready to start their lives together with the added excitement of the pitter patter of tiny feet.

It's been a successful year for the pop star beauty who recently revealed that she was expecting a baby girl with her fiancé.

She posted a photo of a pink stork balloon, decorated with the words "It's a girl!" on her Instagram account.

As the first of her Girls Aloud bandmates to be pregnant Nadine recently said she thought she was the "least likely to be the first to have a baby".

She said: "A couple of the other girls had wanted babies for a long time but I said no way... it was definitely a shock, but I was really, really happy."

Her hit pop band were plagued with rumours of fall-outs following their split in March last year.

Nadine suggested she wanted to continue with the girl group, as she tweeted: "You should know by now I had no part in any of this split business. I couldn't stop them. I had the best time & want to keep going."

During her bid for solo fame, her last album released in 2010 called Insatiable reached number 47 in the UK charts.
