After welcoming her third son, Kimberley admitted that her family is now ‘complete’.

Speaking to OK! At the time, the mum-of-three told: “Me and Justin said to each other yesterday that two just didn’t seem enough for some reason, but now we feel complete.”

On being a mum to three boys, Kimberley added: "It’s quite special when you’ve got so many of the same sex.

"I have always been drawn towards boys, the male energy is a bit more straightforward and I always liked that."

Her boys’ first day back in school comes amid Kimberley’s heartache over losing her dear friend and former Girls Aloud bandmember Sarah Harding.

Sarah tragically lost her battle with breast cancer earlier this month at the age of 39.

After learning about Sarah’s sad passing, Kimberley took to social media to pay tribute to the talented singer, admitting that her heart was completely broken.

She said the loss ‘hurt so bad’ as she penned: “Beautiful Sarah this hurts so bad. To wake up and know that you are really gone is too much to bear.

"Hearing your infectious chuckle was one of my favourite things in the world.

"Your fire burned so bright and you loved, lived and laughed so hard. Sending love and strength to everyone who is grieving today. My heart is broken."

Sarah died shortly after revealing that the disease was terminal and telling fans that Christmas 2020 was likely to have been her last .

In March this year, Sarah revealed the devastating news that the cancer had spread to her spine and she knew she was dying.

Sarah’s other bandmates Cheryl, Nadine Coyle, and Nicola Roberts also paid poignant tributes to the singer they performed alongside after winning Popstars: The Rivals in 2002 until they split for good in 2013.
