Una Healy and Ben Foden shop for baby clothes and cot as they prepare for first child


Preparing her nest: Una Healy and fianc Ben Foden shop for a cot and baby clothes ahead of the arrival of their first child

They've not got long to go before their first child is born.

And with busy lives to lead, it must be hard for Una Healy and her fianc Ben Foden to snatch some precious time to prepare for the arrival of their daughter.

But yesterday they managed to do just that as they headed out together to buy some clothes and furniture for their soon-to-be bundle of joy.

The betrothed couple were snapped inside Mamas and Papas, the celebrity baby shop of choice, as they picked up some essentials.

Ben, 26, gallantly carried a couple of bags of clothes as he and Una, 30, browsed the shop for what they needed.

No doubt they would have settled on lots of pink after they revealed a couple of months ago that they were expecting a girl.

They also purchased a huge cot which was seen being carried to their car by a couple of shop workers.

They then made their way to a supermarket, no doubt hungry after all that shopping.

Una had taken to her Twitter page earlier in the day to share her excitement about going shopping.

Una and Ben announced they were expecting a baby back in September, with Una revealing that their little girl is due on her Saturdays band mate Rochelle Wiseman's birthday in March.

Speaking to MTV shortly after the announcement, Una, who was unaware of the sex at the time, said: 'Yeah, he’s in there! No one believes me because I’m not showing yet.

'Actually, the baby is due on Rochelle's birthday.'

And Rochelle, who was with her at the time, chimed in: 'Yeah, the baby is due on my birthday, so
don’t you think that he or she should be called Rochelle or if it’s a
boy, just Rocket or something…!

In November last year, Una announced that she and Ben were having a girl.

Speaking to Hello! magazine, she said: 'I come from a family of girls, I went
to an all-girls school and I'm in a girl band, so I guess it's fitting
that I'm having a daughter.'
