Danielle Lloyd defends decision to use gender selection for next baby

The mum-of-four says having a baby girl 'is her dream'.

The 33-year-old has been criticised for wanting a ‘designer baby’.

Danielle Lloyd has said she will use gender selection to ensure her next child is a baby girl.

Already mum to four boys, Danielle has defended her decision to undergo the controversial process, saying it’s her dream to have a daughter.

Speaking on BBC Radio 5 today, Danielle said:

“It’s always been my dream to have a little girl.

“It’s about having that mix and bringing up a little girl. I know she might not be ‘girlie’ – she probably won’t be with four brothers – but it’s just about having a little mini-me almost.”

Danielle welcomed her fourth son Ronnie just 16 weeks ago but already says she’s planning on going to Cyprus to ensure her boys will get a baby sister.

The mum has been heavily criticised for her decision and says it’s been ‘frustrating’.

“I’ve got four boys at the moment and they are a handful.

“A lot of people are doing [the procedure] but they keep it quiet, and that is what is so frustrating for me.”

Danielle is mum to seven-year-old Archie, six-year-old Harry and four-year-old from her relationship with footballer Jamie O’Hara, and welcomed her fourth child, and first with Michael O’Neill, Ronnie late last year.
