Former Girls Aloud star Nadine Coyle has appeared in her first exclusive interview and photoshoot at home in California with her daughter Anaíya in HELLO! magazine
In the chat Nadine talks about plans for her first Christmas as a mum and how the birth of her and partner Jason Bell's daughter Anaíya has completely changed her life since Girls Aloud, and her plans for more children.
"It was a wonderful thing to spend my teens and early twenties doing," she tells HELLO! in the interview out this week. "But I don't miss anything.
"Everything I'm doing is so positive. I'm getting to travel all over the world and bring Anaíya with me. She's given me such a new lease of life, so much to look forward to and enjoy.
She adds: "I can barely remember my old life at all. I think, 'What did I do? How did I get through 24 hours a day without a baby to look after?' Every minute is directed towards Anaíya. There are no similarities between my old life and where I am now."
In the revealing chat Nadine, who despite reconciling with Jason after breaking off their engagement in 2010 are yet to reconfirm their engagement, opens up for the first time about her wedding plans with details of her favourite dress.
"We do everything so big in my family so I think a much more intimate one would be perfect, perhaps a location wedding. "We'll fly everyone out and have dinners and events planned for a whole weekend. Then it would be like, 'Oh, yeah, and we got married by the way.'"
Nadine – who will tour the world with Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games next year – is also planning a revealing solo album where she promises not to hold back.
"I'm really laying it all out there, which is scary. I'm making myself vulnerable. But having a baby forces you to live a bit more honestly."
