Saturdays singer Una Foden reveals she is counting down to the birth of her first son next month with a little help from her friends - fellow Saturdays Frankie Bridge, Rochelle Humes, Mollie King and Vanessa White – who joined her baby shower celebrations, covered exclusively in this week's HELLO! magazine.
The 33-year-old singer, who already has a daughter, Aoife, with her England rugby union star husband Ben, tells HELLO! the pregnancy is going to plan and her son is already a good weight: "Ben was a huge baby – over 11lb – but although we've been told our son's a good size, we're not anticipating he’ll be a whopper like his dad. Aoife was just under 8lb and we think our boy will be around the same. I know I'm very lucky to have had such an easy time of it on both occasions."
Has Una's dream pregnancy prompted the other mums in the band to try for another baby? "If I did pregnancy like Una does, then definitely, but I sometimes think I'm not sure I can go through it again," reveals Strictly Come Dancing finalist Frankie, who struggled with water retention while pregnant with her son Parker, her first child with her former footballer husband Wayne Bridge, just over a year ago.
"I felt so big and uncomfortable and only just feel like I've got my body back. But then I'll watch Parker with other children and he loves it so much and I'll think, 'I don’t want him to be an only child.'"
Rochelle, who has a daughter Alaia Mai with former JLS singer Marvin Humes, reveals to HELLO!, "If Marvin had his way, we'd have another one tomorrow, but I think it will be a year or two yet." Even though Mollie (who has recently rekindled her romance with model David Gandy) says starting a family is still "way in the future". "I do see myself with children some day, but I’m nowhere near ready for that yet," she admits.
The girls remain in awe of how Una sails through pregnancy. Says Vanessa, "We did a performance just the other week and Una wasn't even out of breath afterwards. There's nothing she wouldn't do – she's like a warrior!"
