Cheryl Cole says she is glad to be 30

Cheryl Cole has revealed that she is happy to have left her twenties behind.

The Newcastle beauty celebrated her 30th birthday on June 30 and is relieved to be entering a new phase of her life.

Talking to HELLO! magazine Cole explained: “I feel my mentality has changed. I feel calmer and more centred; I feel settled. I'm a grown-up woman now - it's official. I feel much better than I did in my 20s. I look back at 21-year-old me and I definitely don't want to be her again.”

The ex-Girls Aloud star also stated: [Turning 30] always felt like a sigh of relief. I'm glad to put my 20s behind me. They were amazing - don't get me wrong - and I've crammed so much in, but I'm like, 'Relax.'”

She continued: “I'm a woman. I can just breathe now and not worry about life any more. The good, the bad and the ugly... it's all character-building and makes the woman you are.”

Girls Aloud formed in 2002 when Cheryl Cole was 19 years old.

The ‘Fight For This Love’ singer has recently been showing off her complexion in a bare-faced beauty campaign.
