Kimberley Walsh feared her eldest children would ‘lose interest’ in their baby brother but, fortunately, the pair are still ‘obsessed’ with the little one.
The Girls Aloud star welcomed her third child, Nate, with husband Justin Scott in April.
They are already parents to sons Bobby, six, and Cole, four, so there’s a little age gap between the two and baby Nate, but Kimberley has revealed the family couldn’t have adjusted better.
Speaking to Metro.co.uk to raise awareness for BT’s Big Sofa Summit, the pop star explained: ‘[Nate’s] delightful, he’s such a happy baby. He’s just slotted into the family unit so well, there is a bit of an age gap between Cole and Nate so I didn’t know if the boys would lose interest after a few months.’
However, she revealed with relief: ‘They’re still totally obsessed with him and made him laugh for the first time yesterday… It’s almost like seeing it with fresh eyes again, almost like having your first.’
Kimberley, 39, admitted she’s fortunate to have ‘always had good pregnancies’ and felt ‘so much more relaxed’ the last time round.
‘I thought I’d forget all the baby stuff because it’d been so long but it all does just come flooding back to you,’ she said.
‘I’m just loving them seeing it through the boys eyes and I’m just excited so it does feel like he’s always been here.’
The Sound of the Underground singer will be packing away her pregnancy clothes for good as she’s saying no to baby number four.
‘The kids keep saying it, they’re like you just have to have one more, then one more… [Justin’s] looking at me with fear in his eyes, I’m like no, no don’t worry. I feel like the age that I’m at I feel so fortunate to have three healthy babies and I just want to enjoy the next stage of life now like travelling with them,’ she explained.
Kimberley was able to share her pregnancy with her two sisters, who were also expecting their own children at the same time.
In recent weeks, she returned to screens hosting the BBC’s Morning Live but didn’t put pressure on herself to return to presenting.
‘It’s the perfect job, really,’ she said of the breakfast programme.
‘Me and Justin are a team and it has to be that way because it’s just a lot of balls to juggle. I didn’t put pressure on myself to go back at a particular time, but I remember I did with Bobby because he was my first and I do remember it feeling like a real struggle.’
She added: ‘You don’t want to put pressure on yourself because they grow up so fast and you don’t want to miss anything. But equally the longer you stay out of this business then the harder it is for you to physically get back into it because it almost feels daunting.
‘So I prefer to keep my toe dipped in all the time and just do more as it gets easier.’
Kimberley has teamed up with BT for their climate change campaign, to encourage people to spark the conversation about how our homes can become greener through the use of smart technology.
It was actually Bobby and Cole who inspired the singer to get involved, as she revealed: ‘The two older boys are at such an impressionable age and an age where they’re starting to ask a lot of questions about climate change and they’re learning about it at school.
‘So when this came up I thought this is actually a good way to make sure that we as a family are answering all these questions for the kids.
‘It felt like a natural one to be a part of and to raise a bit of awareness.’
