Cheryl Fernandez-Versini's new husband Jean-Bernard is hoping to have "beautiful children" with his new wife, according to his best friend.

Girls Aloud star Cheryl stunned fans this week by announcing out of the blue that she'd married her French beau on 7 July in a secret Caribbean wedding.

And now it seems starting a family may be next on the cards.

In an interview with The Mirror, Jean-Bernard's friend Franck Twister said: "He has told me that he wants to have beautiful children with Cheryl. This is a huge priority for him."

Franck said that Jean-Bernard's mother passed away in 2006 and he has no siblings.

"He comes from a very small family and grew up in provincial France. He has no brothers or sisters and being an only child he has always wanted to be part of a big family."

Cheryl, 31, has made no secret of the fact she'd like to have a family, previously suggesting "four or five" children would be ideal.

Does this mean we might get a pregnancy announcement soon?!

Jean-Bernard's best friend said he realised the marriage came quickly after their first meeting at the Cannes Film Festival a few months ago, but pointed out the newlyweds are blissfully happy and in love.

"[When Jean-Bernard told me about the wedding] I almost dropped the phone I was so surprised. It was very, very fast but then love is love and if that's what makes him happy then I say go for it. I've known him since he was a young boy and I've never seen him so happy."

Cheryl announced her marriage via Instagram late on Sunday evening but declined to give any details about where the wedding took place or who was invited.

Reports have claimed, however, that it was at an exclusive resort in Mustique and just four people were in attendance: Cheryl's mum, Jean-Bernard's dad, Cheryl's assistant Lily England and Jean-Bernard's best man.

While Cheryl's bandmates weren't there, one of them - Nicola Roberts - sent her congratulations via Instagram, defending Chezza's decision to marry so fast.

Nicola posted a quote reading: "You can be in a relationship for two years and feel nothing; you can be in a relationship for two months and feel everything. Time is not a measure of quality; of infatuation, or of love."

She added: "For the Versinis, but mostly for her, who is happier than ever."
