For the exclusive nursery tour Kimberley dressed in a cool light green linen dress, which perfectly complimented the backdrop of her neutral nursery. Kimberley began by explaining: “This is the nursery that I’ve had for all of my boys, it’s become quite a sentimental room because I haven’t actually changed much in it.
“Obviously having three boys it makes it a lot easier but it’s quite a neutral palette anyway. I just like it to be really nice and calm and serene to try and help them sleep.”
“I’m sure it won’t work but that’s the idea!" she quipped.
The gorgeous, bright and airy room with its super high ceilings and sash window looking out onto the lawn, features classic white nursery furniture including a sumptuous day bed, a beautiful set of drawers to store baby’s belongings and a picture-perfect nursing chair.
Padding around her baby’s abode bare foot, the Girls Aloud star, 39, started by showing off the lovely sturdy cot-turned-day bed, adorned with blue blankets, cushions and cute soft toys, telling viewers: “This cot, I had for Bobby and Cole. It’s obviously a day bed now but I can put the side on it when he gets a little bit bigger.”

Kimberley demonstrated the amazing high tech newborn cot baby Nate will sleep in to begin with.
The Halo, which sells for around £250, swivels 360 degrees to make access easy for new parents and gentle vibrates to help baby drift off to sleep. The beautifully serene cot has a torch too and can be rocked by mum or dad. “To be honest, I’d quite like to sleep in there myself,” Kimberley says while showing the cot to the camera.
Kimberley’s nursery tour highlighted what a sentimental mum she is, after having sons Bobby, 6, Cole, four, and now new baby Nate.
The smiling singer gently ushered the camera over to her book corner, where Nate will be able to choose from a whole host of bedtime stories as he grows. Nestled by the bookstand is a giant cuddly bear, which Kimberley reveals has been part of the family for seven years and handed down by her older boys.
The mum of three talked about how each boy has his own book table in their room and explained that she uses them as a gauge for how much they’ve grown, saying: “I always kind of know it’s a bit of a turning point when the babies get big enough to be able to walk over and get their own books and bring them back to me.”
The cool calming colours of the nursery centre around a neutral sage green, with touches of white cream and light blue. Each accessory has been carefully chosen to keep the theme, including the patchwork and leaf shaped cushions placed on the all-important nursing chair.
The amazingly immaculate chair holds many years’ worth of memories for doting new mum Kimberley as she explained she has fed all three of babies there.
“I have this really old nursing chair which is just completely sentimental and so comfortable, that I can just have all the memories of feeding all my boys in there.”
Large enough for Kimberley to cuddle up in with Nate, the sturdy white wooden chair is covered in soft, velvety grey chair padding and includes a much-needed footrest for mum and handy pockets on the arms of the chair for storing the various bits and pieces needed when a new baby is settling in.
Kimberley also revealed a lovely little touch in the room when she drew viewers attention to the drawers, which hold pictures in each of the top sections. The singer, who is married to Justin Scott, 38, said she was thinking of sprucing the unit up by changing the pictures now that the furniture had been handed down to the next boy.
But it was a gift from Kimberley’s sister that really drew her attention as she stood at the drawers admiring her baby’s belongings. Kimberley holds up a tiny blue crocheted hat, explaining her sister had made it but that it was just too warm, at 30 degrees outside, for Nate to wear the hat. “I’m going to keep it anyway for sentimental value,” Kimberley said.
The family-related touch led Kimberley on to the keepsake boxes in the room, which store lots of milestone memories for all of her children.
Reaching up to a shelf adorned with baby-boy related accessories including cuddly Peter Rabbit toys, Kimberley lifted down a delicate box, opening its blue ribbon to reveal some of the items she’s held onto from Bobby and Cole’s younger years.
“I’ve got this little box actually up here which has got all of the boys sentimental stuff like their hospital bands, their first hat, all their little keepsakes so I will add Nate’s to that as well.”
As the camera pans up around the room, illuminating the stunning window, flanked by heavy, floor length sage green drape curtains and framed by a pretty radiator cover below, Kimberley reveals the room is one of her favourites in the house.
“The position of this particular room and the ways the sun comes, it’s always just so light and bright and airy in here and I just, I don’t know, it’s really peaceful. I like coming in here just to feed him or just to have a bit of peace and quiet.”
Further special touches around the spacious nursery include white fluffy, floppy eared Jellycat bunnies, a favourite with toddlers across the nation.
There’s also a host of eye-catching decorations dotted around to keep Nate’s developing brain entertained, including a fun elephant baby mobile, a rocking horse snow globe and a bright rainbow print with the words “Born to be Wild”.
Perhaps the touch that most sums up Kimberley’s life as a mum to three beautiful boys is the framed print, high on her keepsake shelf which reads: “To love, cherish and adore, that’s what little boys are for.”
