Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding has admitted her “biological clock is ticking” after two of her former bandmates gave birth.
Kimberley Walsh and Nadine Coyle both had babies this year and Harding said it has made her think about having children.
She told Hello! Magazine: “It does get harder to see other people have something that you want.
“I do feel my biological clock is ticking and while I’m not ready right now, I do want to be a mum one day. I still have a few years to go but I do go through stages where it plays on my mind.”
The 32-year-old said she was disappointed by the breakdown of her two-year relationship with her childhood sweetheart, DJ Mark Foster.
“I guess it’s a lovely thought, isn’t it, that the person you’re meant to be with was one of your first loves all along. That whole destiny thing,” she told the magazine.
“And I’m really hoping that at some point in the future we can be friends because we have a lot of history.”
Harding said taking part in the gymnastics show Tumble had helped her get over the break-up.
She said: “I learned that I am a lot stronger and more determined than I realised and I think I needed that confidence boost.
“The break-up did shake me and of course I was upset. But I had put so much into the show, I knew I had to focus and that’s what I did.
“It’s taught me not to expect the world from every relationship and to live in the present more. And I definitely can see that I need to stay single for a while because the worst thing I could do right now would be to rush into another relationship. I’ve been guilty of that in the past but I need to spend some time on my own, concentrating on me and what I want from life.”
