Pregnant Danielle Lloyd is ‘over the moon’ to be expecting a baby girl after welcoming four sons.
The 27-year-old star is already mum to Archie, 10, Harry, nine, and George, seven, who she shares with ex Jamie O’Hara, and Ronnie, three, with her husband Michael O’Neill.
Danielle admitted she had ‘bad anxiety’ ahead of her latest gender reveal and burst into tears when she was told she was carrying her first daughter.
“I’m over the moon. I can’t really believe it, to be honest,” Danielle told OK! magazine. “I don’t think it will feel real until she arrives.”
“We booked a private gender scan and I had such bad anxiety in the run-up. I’ve been through it four times and each time they’ve said it was a boy, so I was expecting them to say ‘boy’ again.
“I videoed the whole thing and the doctor went on about the measurements and other things, and you can hear me going, ‘Can you just bloody tell me?!'”
The former Celebrity Big Brother star said she burst into tears when the doctor eventually shared the happy news.
“I felt sick. I couldn’t breathe on the way there,” Danielle said. “It was excitement, nerves, everything. And then he handed Michael a bit of paper, which said, ‘It’s 99% a baby girl.’
“I burst into tears straight away, I just couldn’t believe it.”
Danielle has made no secret of her desire to welcome a little girl.
When she announced she was expecting her fifth child last month, the mum admitted she was desperate for a daughter.
Speaking to Closer, Danielle, 37, revealed: “Having five boys would be totally mad!
“But, of course, the main thing I want is for the baby to be healthy. And if it’s not a girl – we’ll just try again after!”
Danielle previously said she would consider controversial gender selection to make her dream come true.
The procedure allows parents to choose the gender of their child through IVF genetic screening.
During an appearance on Loose Women to defend her decision after she being bombarded with criticism from online trolls, Danielle said: “I do stand by my decision. I think for me it’s a about a family balance as well.
“I totally understand why there’s two sides to the story. Some people don’t agree with it, some people do.
“But I just think for me, I’ve always wanted that little baby girl.
“I love my boys and I’m so thankful that I’ve got them and I wouldn’t change it for the world.”
