Kimberley Walsh tells Closer about her palsâ€™ obsession with her rear, and why she wonâ€™t be spoiling her son this Christmas
Kimberley Walshâ€™s peachy posterior earned her the nickname â€œThe Bootyâ€ from Girls Aloud fans.
But Kimberley, 34, has revealed itâ€™s not just pop fans who love her juicy bum. The star, who is currently starring in Elf: The Musical, reveals her Girls Aloud BFFs Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, 32, and Nicola Roberts, 30, are just as obsessed with her pert behind.
â€œCheryl and Nicola love squeezing my bum for the fun of it,â€ Kimberley giggles. â€œNicola is the worst. Sheâ€™ll stand there and prod it! But weâ€™ve grown up together, weâ€™re like sisters and we know each other inside out.â€
Kimberley gave birth to 16-month-old Bobby with fiance Justin Scott last year. But while new mums can sometimes feel alienated from their non-mum friends, thatâ€™s not the case for Kimberley and her two closest pals.
â€œCheryl and Nicola have both made so much effort to come to see me and Bobby. I appreciate it when they do, because itâ€™s not as easy for me to get around now,â€ says Kimberley.
â€œThey both spoil Bobby, and they both get it. They have friends with kids. Cherylâ€™s sister has loads of little ones, and she totally gets where Iâ€™m at. Itâ€™s not like some of your friends that go: â€˜Oh God, what is she doing?â€™ I might not see them as much but, when I do, itâ€™s exactly the same and itâ€™s nice.â€
The star is busy with her starring role in Elf, and she admits she canâ€™t wait for some much needed family time over Christmas. She says:
â€œMy sister and her husband take over the cooking as theyâ€™re both real foodies. I entertain the kids as I love playing with my nephews. Iâ€™ll do silly dancing or whatever games they want!â€
But down to earth Kimberley says she wonâ€™t be lavishing expensive gifts on her son, revealing: â€œI donâ€™t want to sound like a mean mother but Bobby is only one and he has so many toys already from his birthday – some that he hasnâ€™t even played with yet. I will get him some things but he still always prefer the Hoover over everything! Heâ€™s literally obsessed with cleaning!â€
