Cheryl Cole is prepared to quit ‘The X Factor’ to have a baby with husband Ashley, though show boss Simon Cowell is willing to double the Girls Aloud star’s $2 million salary to keep her on. “Cheryl has so much else going on in life,” an insider for the ITV show told News of the World. “The number one thing on her mind is starting a family. The show is a huge commitment. It’s six months of the year. Cheryl wanted to have a baby with Ashley this year but put it off because of work. She doesn’t want to wait much longer and she’s not keen on having to judge The X Factor while she’s heavily pregnant.”
