Ashley Cole to propose to Cheryl

Cheryl Cole's ex-husband Ashley is planning to propose to her for a second time.

The 28-year-old singer and the soccer ace - who divorced in 2010 amid claims he had cheated on her with five women - wants to re-marry his ex-wife and is now looking for the "biggest" diamond he can find to get down on one knee, so the pair can start a family.



A source told The Sun newspaper: "He is convinced Cheryl will agree to marry him and wants the biggest diamond he can get.



"She's desperate to start a family but he knows she'll want to do it as a married woman."



Cheryl - who has had a makeover with newly blonde hair following her sacking from the US version of 'X Factor' - spent the afternoon with Ashley's mother Sue at her home in Chigwell, Essex, yesterday (04.07.11), and she is "glad" to have her former daughter-in-law back in her life.



A source said: "Sue is incredibly fond of Cheryl and is forever singing her praises. She says she is so glad to have her daughter-in-law back.



"She realises how insanely happy Cheryl makes Ashley and believes they are a good team. Sue saw the positive impact which Cheryl had on Ashley. She loves her son and wants the best for him - as far as she is concerned Cheryl was nothing but a positive influence."



However, Cheryl's mother Joan is not so keen on the reunion, and was upset seeing them together at the Girls Aloud star's 28th birthday party on Friday night (01.07.11).



A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Joan has Cheryl's best interests at heart. She is the person who is most open and honest with her and was there to pick up the pieces when they split."



She reportedly said at Cheryl's party: "I don't want her to have him back. I'll never forgive him for what he did to her."



Meanwhile, Ashley has confirmed he is opening a restaurant and club in central London with hip-hop mogul Jay-Z.



He said: "I'm delighted to be working with Jay-Z. I have grown up listening to his music so to be doing business with him is amazing."



Jay-Z added: "It'll be the hottest place in town."
