CHERYL FERNANDEZ-VERSINI AND HER HUSBAND JEAN-BERNARD are determined to prove doubters over their marriage wrong, by splashing out on a £5million family home. According to our source, Cheryl wants to “put down roots” and, following a period of time apart, she has vowed not to spend more than two weeks away from her hubby at a time. JB has come under fire for being notably absent from her side in recent weeks, and didn’t turn up to the first two weeks of the X Factor live shows.
He also missed her appearance on TFI Friday last month, her BFF Kimberley Walsh’s stage debut in Elf, and left Chez flying solo at the Music Industry Trusts Award do. But last week he lashed out at marriage critics, saying his wife was his number one priority. Taking to his Instagram page, he wrote, “The truth is that even when my dad died I put my life on the line for my wife.

Yes I am working… but my priority is my wife as this is the last person that is my family. “Sacrifice or anything else I will do because at the end of all this.. This is just non sens and what matter is family and my wife is only one left so if she need me I am always going to be there… My wife @cherylofficial is my priority nothing else.
And btw FYI I am in London since a week and if she needs me on the @xfactor I will be there like I always did in the past. Didn’t I?”* Now sources close to Cheryl have told new! she is keen to silence critics too. “JB’s business commitments mean he has to travel a lot, while Cheryl is committed to long stints in the UK for The X Factor, but she is determined to make sure they are very much an active couple rather than just one in theory,” our insider said. “She’s fighting hard to extend the honeymoon period of their marriage by pledging never to be apart for more than two weeks.” Last week, it was reported that Cheryl, 32, has splashed out on a new £5million home in Hertfordshire.
According to our insider, she told pals, “We have to get to know each other’s lives inside out, and that means putting down roots.” The six-bedroom mansion boasts a gym, pool, steam room, rooftop bar and cinema. The reported purchase has fuelled speculation that the patter of tiny feet is next on the agenda for the couple. In August, Cheryl hinted she was ready for children, but didn’t want to put a time limit on falling pregnant. She said, “I don’t think it’s a decision you make. I’m just going to go with the flow. Whatever Mother Nature gives us, whatever is going to happen…” Hopefully, Chez will regain a few of the pounds she lost earlier this year before she starts a family.
She put her weight loss down to grief following the death of her father-in-law, and last week JB, 35, revealed it has been a tough year for the couple. Writing on Instagram, he said, “Loosing my dad and my mum was tougher things I could go troughs #onlychild You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have. 2015 Let’s see what 2016 hold.” Our source revealed that as well as buying their dream home in the UK, Cheryl and JB are also considering buying a place in France, saying, “They’re house-hunting in the south of France so they can be based near Cannes earlier in the year.” With so much going on, Cheryl, who is currently mentoring the Groups on The X Factor, must be looking forward to a festive break at home after the winner is announced on December 13. And it seems in Chez’s case, home is where her hubby is!
