Nadine Coyle reveals she is engaged to American footballer boyfriend Jason Bell


By Ben Todd

Happy news: Nadine Coyle revealed she is engaged to American football player Jason Bell during an interview with Scott Mills on Radio 1

Girls Aloud star Nadine Coyle is engaged.

The singer agreed to marry NFL footballer Jason Bell after a surprise proposal in Los Angeles last week - but he had to get down on two knees instead of one because of a football injury.

Asked if she was wearing an engagement ring by presenter Scott Mills during an appearance on Radio 1 today, Miss Coyle, 25, said: 'Yes, that is an engagement ring. It happened last week.

Promotional blitz: Nadine arrived at BBC 1 studios in London today to promote her debut solo single Insatiable

'I just got back from London and he was in New York and he surprised me with a ring and stuff, while I was in my pyjamas! If I had known I would have had a blow-dry or at least had a manicure or something!

'It happened in Los Angeles. He was really nice about it.

'He got down on two knees, not one knee because he had played football for a while so he was all banged up. It was different! It was really, really nice. He’s probably dying now.'

Before she started a relationship with Jason, Miss Coyle dated several famous men, including Desperate Housewives actor Jesse Metcalfe and Northern Irish soccer player Neil McCafferty.

Miss Coyle has been living in Los Angeles in recent years.

There had been intense speculation she was leaving the band and had fallen out with her bandmates.

However, according to reports, there have been moves towards reconciliation in recent weeks.

While Miss Coyle wasn't wearing a ring on the traditional engagement finger, she sported a large diamond band on the third finger of her right hand.

Meanwhile, during the interview on Radio 1, Nadine fuelled speculation of a rift with her Girls Aloud bandmates after claiming she hadn't received a phonecall from any of them.

Currently promoting her debut solo single Insatiable, the Northern Irish singer denied claims that her four bandmates had struggled to contact her via phone.
She said: 'My number hasn’t changed... we’ve not seen each other in a while.'

Pout and about: The singer certainly soaked up the attention

Her interview with Mills came after she admitted on an Irish chat show she had sent bandmate Cheryl Cole a text message when she was suffering from malaria, but hadn't received a reply.

Speaking to Ryan Tubridy on RTE, the presenter quizzed Coyle over the seriousness of Cole's health troubles.

When asked if Mrs Cole had been seriously ill, Coyle said: 'I don't know, I really don't know...

Rift? Nadine claimed she texted Cheryl when she was ill, but never heard back

I texted to make sure she was alright and everything, but I think she must have been busy or whatever.'

When Tubridy asked if that was 'because she didn't get back to you?', Coyle agreed.

Despite suggestions of discord between the five-piece, the 25-year-old insisted the group hadn't split.

She told Mills: 'Girls Aloud are definitely still together, we will come back we are just on a break.'

Coyle is set to release Insatiable on November 1 - just a week after Cole's new single Promise This.

Cole's track was played on the Chris Moyles Radio 1 breakfast show yesterday, but received mixed reviews from fans - and Coyle admitted she hadn't heard it yet.

Girls Aloud last performed together at a Coldplay gig a year ago after officially going on 'hiatus' 15 months ago to focus on their solo careers.

In an interview in the Spring, Nicola Roberts admitted she hadn't spoken to Coyle since last September.

The redhead told Hello!: 'If I'm really honest, we haven't spoken to Nadine since we did the Coldplay gig at Wembley in September. I talked to the other girls about it on Monday and no, none of us have heard from her.

A few months earlier, their bandmate Kimberley Walsh said the group was waiting for Coyle to return from LA so they could discuss the group's future.

Telling all: Nadine Coyle chatted to Scott Mills in a pre-recorded interview for his Radio 1 show

She said: 'The plan is ... well, basically Nadine needs to come over from LA. We need to chat and book it in because there are five people's diaries to work around, rather than just one.'

In response, Coyle wrote on her Twitter page: 'Laughing at people suggesting I'm holding up GA. Really?? Let's be realistic. Open your eyes. It's made out like I have all the power.'
