They married in secret, but got divorced in a blaze of glory.
So it’s unsurprising that Cheryl Tweedy / Cole / etc and her ex Jean Bernard Fernandez-Versini haven’t kept in touch much.
So news of her supposed pregnancy must have come as quote a shock to the fella.
But did Cheryl do the decent thing and let him know via a sweet text?
Nah! The French restaurateur has revealed that he found out about her news like the rest of us. By reading all about it.
When asked how he discovered that Chez was with child, JB told London’s Evening Standard newspaper: “Funnily enough that [the news] was how I heard.”
But in spite of what went before, it looks as though he’s taken Cheryl’s happy nappy news pretty well.
“It’s a great thing to have babies,” he said. “There are so many sad things these days, if everyone was creating life, the world would be a better place.”
Now several months on from his divorce, the handsome French fox says he is ready to find love but will not go out and purposely seek it.
He says he will let fate take its course.
“You cannot approach it differently when you fall in love,” he said.
“If you can give me tips for me to structure my heart in order not to fall in love the same way, please explain to me but I don’t think it’s possible.
“If it happens, it happens. My life has never been about looking for something. It comes to me.
“I’m old-fashioned. If I’m meant to meet the person, I will. If not, I will go home.”
