Nadine Coyle gives birth to baby girl

FORMER Girls Aloud star Nadine Coyle has given birth to a baby girl.

The Derry City popstar, who is now based in the US, took to Twitter last night to share the happy news of her daughter's arrival with her 292,000 followers.

She wrote: "I am overjoyed to let you know our little girl is here. She is amazing! I love being a mammy & will fill you all in soon. Love Nadine Xx"

The father of the child is financial adviser Jason Bell. Nadine had split from the former American footballer in 2011, but they rekindled their romance last year.

Recently it was reported the pair had become engaged and are planning to wed later this year.

Speculation is already rife online as to what the couple will name their first born, with Nadine and Majella among the suggestions.

Nadine rose to fame as a member of Irish group Six before becoming lead singer of UK girl group Girls Aloud. She is the first of the five Girls Aloud members to become a mother.

Nadine's former bandmate Cheryl Cole was among the first people to send a tweet of congratulations.
