Kickettes, a question. If you were rolling through the streets at this stage of pregnancy, would you have the strength to get off the sofa, let alone hit Kings Road for a shopping spree?
Hmm, well, perhaps we would drag our behinds out of the private car, buy half a dozen pairs of shoes and then make the driver come in and help us carry them all out to the car.
Because 1. he’s a driver, which is synonymous with servant; 2. We’re pregnant. And we have many shoes. So help us carry the shopping and then drive us to our hair appointment. We still have two and a half months to go - let’s try and stay mates.
Stories are beginning to circulate in the gossip netherworlds that Ashley and Cheryl Cole may be expecting.
Friends of Ashley’s are yakking it up, according to an insider: “Cheryl and Ashley have been wanting a family for ages now, it would be the seal on their relationship and Ashley’s friends have been making it their business to talk about it. It is the talk among Ashley’s football gang.“
First of all, who the hell says “football gang“? No one born after the year 1800 talks like that, do they? Ashley may want to look into removing said insiders from his circle of mates.
But back to the baby talk. Cheryl hasn’t hid her desire to have a baby – soon after her and Ashley were married last July, she admitted they wanted a family. She’s also pulled out of being a judge on the reality show, Britain’s Got Talent, which would have had her as the sole female judge next to Simon Cowell and Piers Morgan.
So remember, if this turns out to be true: you read it here first-ish. Or, if it’s a complete crock: we never met.

Stewart Downing is a baby daddy and he didn’t even know it.
Neither did his recent ex, Michaela Henderson-Thynne, who he was seriously dating at the time of the baby girl’s conception.
Downing discovered he was a dad when Donna Moloney, a nursery boss, headed to his parents’ house and presented la sprog of their son’s loins in true soap opera style.
A “friend” of Michaela’s told the Sun newspaper that Michaela is beyond distraught at the news that Stewart not only cheated on her during their four year relationship, but that the junk in his trunk is baby-making capable.
What we want to know is, did Mr. D know all along and keep it on the low, or is this the first time he’s finding out about the baby? Not sure about you, Kickettes, but if you were pregnant and watching yourself turn into a gigantic whale without a man around to complain to about it, wouldn’t you be making a few phone calls?
Or not, perhaps we’ve said too much.
Downing’s agent refuses to comment at this stage.

Charlotte Meares and Jermain Defoe (Tottenham) got engaged on Valentines Day. Wedding date: TBC.
Nice one, Ms. Defoe-to-be, we’re impressed with your baller skills.

Gary Neville and Emma Hadfield will be getting married at Manchester Cathedral this summer.
On the 16th of June.
The. same. date. as. Steven. Gerrard’s. wedding. To. Alex. Curran.
We’re thinking the guest list will be clashing like the lining in a bad designer handbag knock off, but we’re excited about the drama potential.
Gary plays for Man U, and is a very close friend of David Beckham, who has admitted he has few close mates.
Random fact: at the 2006 World Cup, Gary refused to share a room with Becks because of his obsessive compulsive disorder. Becks has to unpack everything and line it all up neatly, whereas Gary could give a rats arse about that kind of thing. Plus ,David goes to bed late (around 1am) and Gary goes to bed early (10pm).
Don’t ask us how we know such things, we just know.
We’re sure David will be invited to be a best man for the Neville/Hadfield nuptials (Gary was his best man in ‘99 when he tied the knot), but sources are saying Victoria will want to hit the WAG fest that will be the Gerrard/Curran wedding. It looks like they’ll be booking a helicopter so they can hit both parties.
