Nadine Coyle: ‘I Haven’t Left My Baby’s Side Since She Was Born – It Broke My Heart When I Tried’

Kimberley Walshisn’t the only member of Girls Aloud in mum mode – bandmate Nadine Coyle is also getting her head around being a parent.

Nadine, who gave birth to her baby girl in February, told Twitter followers that she hasn’t stopped crying since she became a mum.

‘She is amazing thank you. I cry tears of joy at least once a day,’ she said in response to one fan’s question on Mother’s Day.
The singer also admitted that she’s finding it really difficult to leave her child, even for a few minutes.

‘I was always paranoid, with a baby, I am a freak!’

‘I haven’t left her side since she was born. I tried to go out one day & broke my heart crying in the driveway. Maybe tomorrow……

‘Nawwwww!! Who am I kidding. Maybe next month.. Xx.’

Nadine went into the feelings of protection she’s experienced since becoming a mother, explaining that living in California can be especially worrying.

‘I love living in CA but these earthquakes scare me. My baby is only weeks old & has already been in 2. Buying full survival kits today.

‘I threw myself over her. She wasn't too impressed. I was always paranoid, with a baby, I am a freak! I may need professional help.’

Nadine and partner Jason Bell have yet to make their baby girl’s name public, and the singer certainly wasn’t giving anything away during her Q&A Twitter session.

Let’s hope the name isn’t anything as outrageous as this celebrity lot’s!
