Kimberley Walsh has ‘grown apart’ from her Girls Aloud band mates – but she and Cheryl are closer than ever

Kimberley Walsh has opened up on the varying relationships she has with her Girls Aloud co-stars.

While she’s closer than ever to Cheryl , she’s got a more strained relationship with Sarah Harding and Nadine Coyle.

The girls haven’t all stayed in touch since the band split in 2013 and they went their separate ways.

But becoming mums has given Kimberley and Cheryl more chances to hang out, as she regularly takes her sons Cole and Bobby over for playdates with Cheryl’s baby Bear.

And they’re still in touch with Nicola
The girls have also remained close to Nicola Roberts, with the trio appearing to throw some shade at the other girls recently as they cosied up in a selfie to celebrate the girl band’s 15th anniversary.

Admitting that she’s closest to Cheryl and Nicola, Kimberley told The Sun Online : “I do still speak to the others, but a bit more like you just check in with people that you work with, I guess.

“It’s a different chapter in our lives now. We’ve got kids and things move on don’t they?”

She added: “My sons Cole and Bobby get on well with Cheryl’s baby Bear – they have a lovely time.”

Girls Aloud came together in 2002 after forming on TV talent show Popstars: The Rivals.

They enjoyed huge success, with 20 Top Ten singles in a row, before taking a three-year break from 2009.

They got back together in 2012 for their 10th anniversary, but split for good the following year.

Cheryl, Nicola and Kimberley recently got together for a girls’ day out, heading to the cinema to see Black Panther.

Kimberley has two children with husband Justin Scott – Bobby, three, and baby Cole, born in December, while Cheryl welcomed baby Bear with boyfriend Liam Payne last March.

And the kids enjoy getting together just as much as they do.

A fan page devoted to Liam and Cheryl posted a quote of Kimberley talking about their sons’ bromance.

She said: “The boys get on so well – they saw each other last week, little Bear is just kind of in awe of Bobby – he’s very loud and boisterous and Bear just stares at him and watches him, transfixed.

“He’s probably thinking, ‘Who is this guy?'”
