Danielle Lloyd welcomes baby girl and Marnie Simpson announces 2nd pregnancy

Baby joy all round!

It's been a big day for baby news in the British reality star scene as both Danielle Lloyd and Marnie Simpson made some big announcements.

Danielle today announced she gave birth to her fifth child, a baby girl, on Friday.

The model previously revealed she was overjoyed to finally be expecting a daughter after four boys, having long expressed her desire to raise a girl.

"Friday we welcomed our beautiful baby girl to complete our family. We are all over the moon and both mummy & baby are doing well," she wrote in an Instagram post.

The happy news comes after the 37-year-old revealed on Friday that doctors were monitoring her after noticing her baby had "gone quiet."

She wrote in her pregnancy diary for OK! Magazine: "They asked me about the movements of the baby but she was quite quiet during the week so I was a bit worried. So, I was monitored in the evening and they asked me to come back the following morning.

"The kids were stressing out because they only thought I was going in for a Covid test. It all seems fine though. It's better to be safe than sorry."

Her newborn daughter is her second child with husband Michael O'Neill, with whom she also shares 3-year-old Ronnie.


She's also mum to 10-year-old Archie, 9-year-old Harry and 7-year-old George with ex Jamie O'Hara.

Elsewhere, Geordie Shore alum Marnie Simpson has announced she's expecting her second child with fiancé Casey Johnson.

The 29-year-old told OK! that she's 13 weeks along, two years after welcoming the couple's son Rox.

Marnie says that while she felt like a "ray of sunshine" during her first pregnancy, she feels like "the walking dead" this time around and has been battling "horrendous" morning sickness.

"I’ve been sick out of the car window three or four times," she admitted.

The couple said they were surprised to find out another baby was on the way as they were planning on trying after Marnie wrapped up a TV show project she was filming in September.

"During filming I had really weird symptoms. I constantly felt sick, my gums were bleeding and I felt dizzy, but I just put it down to it being an activity-based show and the fact it was 17-hour days," she said.

"When I was away filming I was messaging Casey and I told him I felt really sick and my boobs were really hurting. I said it could be because I was running around and my muscles hadn’t been used in that way before, but Casey said he thought I was pregnant.

"...As soon as I got back that night I did a pregnancy test and it came up with 'pregnant' straight away. We just laughed!"

A big congratulations to both ladies and their families!
