The star looked radiant as she sported a dewy makeup look with a nude lip while styling her blonde locks in loose waves.  

Her eldest sons Bobby and Cole donned adorable matching lego t-shirts while enjoying a fun day out.

Kimberley recently revealed her hopes for the late Sarah Harding to watch the upcoming Girls Aloud charity walk ‘in some way shape or form’, following her death from breast cancer last year aged 39.

The singer will raise funds for Cancer Research UK next month when she teams up with former bandmates Nadine Coyle, Nicola Roberts and Cheryl to honour their friend with a Race For Life For Sarah 5k event, held in London’s Hyde Park.

In an exclusive interview with MailOnline, she also discussed how Sarah’s passing has encouraged many of her friends to ‘check themselves’ and discover their own health problems.

The walk will take place on July 24 in London’s Hyde Park, with the girls encouraging fans to join the team and be part of a special tribute to Sarah.

Kimberley said: ‘I think she would absolutely love the idea of everybody coming together for her and having this special moment because I think unfortunately that’s what we missed.

‘We were never able to create that for her while she was here and I would have loved for her to see that for herself but hopefully she will in some way shape or form.

‘It will definitely be a very emotional moment but she would absolutely love to think of everyone coming together for her.’

The Can’t Speak French hitmakers previously claimed they were launching the special 5k event in line with a ‘poignant and specific wish’ Sarah expressed before her death to raise money for breast cancer research.

Kimberley elaborated: ‘We obviously spoke a lot with Sarah about what she would like for us to do on her behalf.

‘And I know this is something she felt really strongly about, raising money, and particularly for a certain area of research that she was passionate about.

‘But we never spoke about the Race For Life so this would be news to her.’

Sarah found fame in 2002 when she won a place on Popstars: The Rivals with the band and took the UK by storm soon after.

She ‘slipped away peacefully’ in September 2021 after ‘fighting so strongly from her diagnosis until her last day’, her mum Marie wrote on Instagram at the time.

Kimberley said: ‘I think it’s definitely had an impact on all of us. I know a lot of friends that I speak to, it’s had a massive impact on them and, people that I know, it’s actually made them check themselves and find that they had problems too.

‘The other thing she really wanted to do was spread the word. She was so young, at 39, you don’t expect to be dealing with that but it doesn’t spare anybody.

‘So if it can just make however many more women and men check themselves regularly then she’s achieved something in that alone.’

Cheryl, Nadine and Nicola will be taking part themselves at Hyde Park, but others who can’t make it – like Kimberley – are invited to join in by doing a Race For Life At Home For Sarah on the same day, or at a more convenient time.

The Bradford native will be abroad on a pre-booked holiday for her mum Diane’s 70th birthday but has vowed to FaceTime her fellow BRIT Award winners while taking part virtually.

She said: ‘Yeah, I’m away with my mum cos it’s her 70th birthday so unfortunately it’s just bad timing but I will be racing with family members and I’ll FaceTime the girls from where I am and I’ll race at the same time.

‘I mean, I’m sad to not be there but also I think it’s gonna be so emotional. Maybe if we were all there together it would just be too much for everybody to deal with.’

The event kicks off at 11:30am, with the girls encouraging fans to join the team and be part of a special tribute to Sarah.

Meanwhile, Girls Aloud are planning other fundraising activities in 2022, culminating in a huge gala dinner in the next few months, with more details coming soon.

The announcement comes after the band confirmed plans to reunite for one night only as part of a fundraising event in Sarah’s memory.
