EMMERDALE star Amy Walsh has hit the headlines after she revealed she is expecting a baby with her EastEnders actor boyfriend Toby Alexander-Smith.
But some people don't realise that the actress' sister is singer Kimberley Walsh.
Who is Amy Walsh's sister Kimberley Walsh?
Kimberley, 39, was born in Bradford, West Yorkshire.
She has three siblings, Sally, Adam and Amy – her sisters are both soap stars who have appeared in Emmerdale.
The singer shot to fame when she appeared on ITV show Popstars: The Rivals in 2002.
She became part of the winning band with Cheryl Tweedy, Nadine Coyle, Sarah Harding and Nicola Roberts, given the title Girls Aloud.
Is Kimberley married?
Kimberley married Justin Scott, her long-term partner, in January 2016.
Justin is a former member of the British boy band Triple 8.
The group were known as the British *NSync, who disbanded in 2005.
Does Kimberley have kids?
Kimberley and Justin have three sons.
They have six-year-old Bobby and four-year-old Cole – the couple then welcomed their third son in June 2021.
Kimberley revealed the couple named their newborn Nate after admiring the name for years.
Explaining how they picked it, she told OK! Magazine: "I’ve always liked the name.
"There was a Nate in Boyz II Men and I’ve known a few people in the industry with the name and it’s quite American-sounding, and so is Cole, so I felt like they went well together."
What has Kimberley said about the death of Sarah Harding?
On September 6, 2021 Kimberley paid tribute to bandmate Sarah after news she had died after battling breast cancer.
Posting a picture of them with their arms around one another she wrote: "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 was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer last August and underwent a mastectomy and chemotherapy in a bid to prolong her life.
