The mum-of-four says she’s determined to have a baby girl.

Danielle Lloyd has faced off a lot of criticism ever since she first spoke out about opting for gender selection for her fourth child.

The 34-year-old has now said that she will undergo gender selection IVF in America when she does have her next baby, defending her decision by saying if she can afford it she might as well.

Danielle says she is determined to have a baby girl after having three boys with ex-husband Jamie O’Hara and another boy with fiance Michael O’Neill however many have hit back at her decision, calling her out on social media.

“They called me a ‘selfish, disgusting b***h’ who should be thankful for my four miracle babies,” she told the Daily Mail.

“I’m very honest and don’t beat around the bush, but I didn’t expect the amount of vitriol.

“I didn’t even think I had said anything that bad, but I admit that perhaps I didn’t think about it that much.”

Danielle has revealed that she and Michael are planning to fly to California to have her eggs harvested and fertilised before the female eggs are implanted.

“I want a girl and if I can pay for it, then that’s OK, I can get one. There’s just an urge inside me to have a girl.

“I just can’t let it go,” she said.

“If I’m going to have one more, if this science is there, why not do it? I don’t think it’s a selfish thing to do. I could be selfish and go on for years having more and more boys.

“The thought of not going to my daughter’s wedding or not having those chats I have with my mum. Girls always have that relationship with their mothers.”
