Kimberley Walsh to drop maiden name

Kimberley Walsh wants to drop her maiden name after she gets married to her longtime boyfriend Justin Scott.

The 34-year-old singer may be recognised in the industry by her surname but she has admitted she wants to have the same last moniker as her beau and their 14-month-old son Bobby once the couple have tied the knot.

Speaking to the Daily Mail newspaper's FEMAIL, she said: "I want to have the same surname as my husband and my son. It's just much nicer."

And, it seems the pair, who got engaged 14 months ago following 11 years of dating, are keen to get hitched as soon as possible as they've already started looking at venues.

She explained: "When you have a baby it feels important to be a family officially."

But although the date, place and time for the nuptials are yet to be determined, Kimberly has admitted she's already chosen her former Girls Aloud bandmates Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Nicola Roberts to be her bridesmaids, along with her two best friends from home, her two sisters and her beau Justin's sister and daughter Chloe.

However, she previously said, despite the many famous faces expected to attend, she is determined to have a low-key wedding.
