Jesse MetcalfeNadine Coyle might be following her Girls Aloud bandmate Cheryl Tweedy, sorry, Cheryl Cole, down the aisle sooner rather than later.

Nadine’s boyfriend Jesse Metcalfe has revealed that his mother has given Nadine her seal of approval: “[Their first meeting] went pretty well. Nadine passed the test and they really liked each other.”

Thankfully, it’s not just Jesse’s mum that likes Nadine. The Desperate Housewives star said himself: “In general, I look for a confident woman who has something going on in her life.”

“I like a girl who is intelligent and loyal. Nadine is all of those things.”

Jesse has previously admitted that he was drunk when he met Nadine’s parents but described them as “really cool people”.
