The model gave birth to her fourth son earlier this month.

She may have only just give birth but Danielle Lloyd is already looking forward to having another baby.

She and fiancé Michael O’Neill welcomed a little boy named Ronnie on 13 September.

He’s the fourth boy for Danielle, who also has three sons – Archie, seven, Harry, six, and George, four – from her marriage to footballer Jamie O’Hara.

She’s now confirmed that she’d love to have a daughter and appeared to confirm speculation that she’d undergo gender selection to ensure her next baby is a girl.

The procedure involves only implanting embryos of the desired gender in the woman’s womb.

“I think so,” Danielle told OK! Magazine in response to the rumours.

“I’ve always dreamt of having a little girl. If we did have another one I’d like it quite soon. I wouldn’t want to be pregnant at 40 and it’s nice for the kids to be close in age.

“Having Ronnie has made me and Michael more of a unit, more complete as a family, and I think another baby, a little girl especially, would only cement that more.”

Gender selection is something that has proved controversial in the past – some within the medical community feel choosing a baby’s gender falls under a couple’s reproductive rights, while others claim it opens the door to parents becoming more specific about what they want and the creation of ‘designer babies‘.

Perhaps most famously, Chrissy Teigen was the target of online abuse when she revealed that she and husband John Legend had chosen to have a girl.

“It excited me to see… just the thought of seeing him with a little girl. I think he deserves a little girl. I think he deserves that bond,” she said at the time.
