Coleen Nolan to become a grandmother

Coleen Nolan is to become a grandmother.

The 'Loose Women' panelist has revealed she is to become a grandmother for the first time as her son Shane Roche, 26, is expecting a baby with his ex-girlfriend Emma.

As a snap of an ultrasound appeared on the ITV show this afternoon (07.09.15), Coleen said: "It's my eldest son Shane and Emma. They're not actually together sadly but they're really good friends and they're both going to be great parents and we're all so excited and she has asked me to be with her at the birth. I'm so excited!"

The 50-year-old presenter went on to reveal that her eldest son is expecting a little girl and that he and Emma have already decided on a name.

She added: "She's going to be called Amelia Rose."

Coleen - who also has 22-year-old son Jake Roche with ex-husband Shane Richie and 14-year-old daughter Ciara with husband Ray Fensome - also confessed she's already been splashing out on gifts for her first grandchild.

Speaking about her recent holiday to Orlando, Florida, she said: "I spent most of the time in America buying this child clothes and my husband said, 'It's not even here yet!' I went, 'Wait until it is!'"

And the former 'Celebrity Big Brother' contestant - who wants to be called "Nanny" when the tot comes along - is hoping she'll get to help out with babysitting duties.

She added: "I just hope I'm not one of these overly obsessive grannies but I am kind of hoping at some point that Shane's work and Emma's work will clash so I have to have Amelia."
