Danielle Lloyd expecting first daughter

·2-min read

Danielle Lloyd is expecting her first daughter after giving birth to four sons.

The 37-year-old model and reality star is mum to Archie, 10, Harry, nine, and George, seven, all by ex-husband Jamie O'Hara, as well as Ronnie, three, who she shares with current husband Michael O'Neill.

Danielle told OK! magazine that she decided to check the sex of her latest child and is "delighted" by the impending arrival of her sons' first baby sister.

"I'm over the moon. I can't really believe it, to be honest," she said. "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 bl**dy tell me?!'"

The former Miss Great Britain had made no secret of her desire to have a baby girl and had previously admitted she'd consider sex selection during IVF treatment to ensure she could finally welcome a daughter into her family.

"I felt sick. I couldn't breathe on the way there," Danielle revealed. "It was excitement, nerves, everything. And then he handed Michael a bit of paper, which said, 'It's 99 per cent a baby girl.' I burst into tears straight away, I just couldn't believe it."

Danielle defended her decision to consider sex selection via IVF during an appearance on Loose Women after receiving heavy criticism online.

"I do stand by my decision. I think for me it's about a family balance as well," she explained. "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."

The former Celebrity Big Brother considered the move after suffering a miscarriage in 2019, when she believes she was pregnant with a baby girl. However, she put those plans on hold after being diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome and endometriosis.
