Derek Hough "Desperate" To Marry Cheryl Cole?
The Girls Aloud star is said to have refused to wed the dancer...
Cheryl Cole's suspected boyfriend Girls Aloud beauty has allegedly left the dancer "heartbroken" after she told him that after her failed marriage to footballer Ashley Cole, a wedding will not be on the cards.
Following reports that The Flood singer has told Hough to "back off", a source has now told the tabloid: "Cheryl has told Derek point blank that she won’t marry him. They’ve been talking a lot recently about what the future holds for them."
"Cheryl has told Derek she loves him and wants to settle down and start a family. But she’s made it quite clear that it won’t involve a wedding,”
The friend continued: “She’s been permanently scarred by her marriage break-up with Ashley and can’t face going through another divorce.”
"Derek has really been hit hard by Cheryl's change of heart. He is desperate to get married and settle down. She wants to have babies - and lots of them - and has told him that he's the man she wants to be with. But he had his hopes set on a really big wedding."
They added: "Derek's very traditional and grew up in a Mormon household where having children out of wedlock is absolutely not acceptable. He had a tough childhood himself and even moved to England to stay with a family friend when his own parents' marriage fell into difficulties.
"But rather than put him off marriage, his parents' own problems have just made him more determined to have a long and happy marriage."
Despite The X Factor judge allegedly refusing to marry Derek, reports have also suggested that the 25-year old is planning to quit US TV show, Dancing With The Stars, so he can spend more time with Chezza.
The new series of the dancing show is due to start in March - around the same time that Cole is due to move Stateside for her apparent role on the US version of The X Factor - and Hough wants to be by Cheryl's side when she arrives in Los Angeles.
A pal told The Mirror: "Derek is keen to move on. He has won the show three times and thinks it is time for a change. And he wants to be there to help Cheryl settle into her new life.”
