Cheryl Cole and ex-husband Ashley spent the entire weekend together and have told friends that they want to have children within two years, according to reports.
The Sun said the pair, who divorced in September following allegations the footballer had been unfaithful, went to a barbecue on Sunday and revealed to pals that they are looking into buying a property abroad.
The newspaper said they also told friends that they want to have children together, before the former X Factor judge turns 30.
A source was quoted as telling the newspaper: “For the first time in nine years Cheryl’s looking at an empty diary. After the X Factor USA plans fell apart, she realised there wasn’t much else in her life.
“She realised she had to embrace those closest to her – and Ashley remains the love of her life.”
The footballer was spotted at the Girls Aloud star’s 28th birthday bash at a West London hotel on Friday, where they were apparently seen kissing and cuddling.
The Sun said that the couple went on to share a “date night” on Saturday night.
A spokesman for the pop star said there was “no comment” on the reports.
Cheryl’s Girls Aloud bandmates Kimberley Walsh and Nicola Roberts were also present at her lavish birthday party.
Nicola tweeted afterwards: “Chezzabelle’s rocking party only gave us 2hrs sleep! Woah Dude!”
