The 29-year-old is keen for her new dancer beau to meet her former spouse, who she divorced in September 2010 after it was revealed he had cheated on her multiple times, reports contactmusic.com.
"Cheryl thinks it might be a good idea for the pair of them to meet at some point, maybe at the end of the year when things are a bit calmer work-wise," said a source.
"Cheryl is still in regular touch with Ashley. Tre hasn't kicked up a massive fuss about it but it's hard for any man if their girlfriend is in touch with her ex. She also doesn't want it to become an issue at a later point, especially since she has his surname and no intention of changing it," the source added.
