Kimberley Walsh may be nearing her due date but the former Girls Aloud singer showed no signs of slowing down as she stepped out to celebrate Denise Van Outen“s birthday over the weekend.
The pregnant star, 32, proudly showed off her blossoming baby bump in a tight, leopard print dress. Kimberley teamed her figure-hugging frock with nude heels and a black quilted clutch bag and beamed from ear to ear as she arrived at the star-studded bash in trendy bar Gilgamesh in Camden, London.
Ahead of the celebrations, the soon-to-be mum posted a sweet message to birthday girl Denise, writing on Twitter, “Happy Birthday to my gorgeous friend @denise_vanouten hope you have an amazing day can”t wait to celebrate with you.”

Kimberley posted a couple of photos from the night, one of which showed Denise ringing in her milestone birthday with a sparkler. “#fabulousat40 Happy Birthday @Denisevanouten,” she captioned the snap.
Denise was joined by her close celebrity friends Amanda Byram, Fearne Cotton, Jessica Wright, Lydia Bright and Kara Tointon among others. The blonde beauty and her entourage left Gilgamesh at about 11pm and headed for club Disco Soho where Denise “out-danced” her friends.
“I had a great time last night celebrating my 40th birthday with 31 of my closest friends. Thanks ladies for being brilliant,” wrote Denise the following morning.
The actress and television presenter, who split from her husband Lee Mead last year, defied her years in a silk mini playsuit that showed off her enviable legs. She completed her birthday look with a smart black blazer and sky-high white, platform heels.
“Waiting for my nearest and dearest girlfriends to arrive @GilgameshBar #40,” Denise wrote at the start of the night, alongside a photo of herself striking a pose at the dinner table.
Denise has previously opened up to ! magazine about her love life.
“My 40th is all about dating again,” she said. “I”ve had a few offers and I”ve had all my friends trying to set me up but it”s only now that I feel ready. I”m excited and looking forward to having a bit of fun.
The part-time DJ, who has a four-year-old daughter Betsy with Lee, also added that she is still on good terms with the West End performer.
“People keep asking me if 40 signifies a new beginning or a fresh start but I don”t feel like I”ve had a terrible time,” she said. “I”m one of the few people who has gone through a break-up and it”s remained amicable. We”ve got a good balance. We split the childcare and everything is genuinely good between us.”
