London, Jun 10 : English footballer Ashley Cole has been doing his utmost to woo back wife Cheryl Cole by sending her gifts while she toured with Girls Aloud.
The Chelsea star sent helium-filled balloons along with flowers and a bottle of bubbly.
But the only mistake he made was to send his wife a text before they all arrived.
"He really didn't think that through, did he? Still, they are really beautiful," The Sun quoted 24-year-old Cheryl, as saying.
The 27-year-old footballer also made a 250-mile round trip to Birmingham's National Indoor Arena just to hug his wife and see her show with mum-in-law Joan.
The revelations in Hello magazine are the clearest sign yet that the couple are re-working on their marriage.
