Khloe Kardashian has just admitted that she 'badly' wanted a son before giving birth

Is secretly coveting one gender over the other one of the last pregnancy taboos?

They might deny it but it's a fact that many mums and dads-to-be hope for either a boy or a girl.

A post shared by Khloé (@khloekardashian) on

Khloe Kardashian has admitted that when she found out that she was pregnant, she "badly" hoped she would have a boy because of the bond she shares with her sister Kourtney's son.

"I wanted a boy so badly because Mason and I are so close. I love our bond," she wrote on Twitter.

"I felt confident in having a boy but God blessed me with my precious True and now I wouldn’t know what to do with a boy."

Khloe raises an interesting point - for whatever reason, lots of people truly believe they'll bond better or be a better parent to the gender of their choice.

A number of celebrity mums have been candid about the use of gender selection, a controversial process whereby parents specifically choose to have either a boy or a girl.

Chrissy Teigen has said that she and husband John Legend chose for their first child, Luna, to be a girl.

Danielle Lloyd meanwhile has said that after having four sons, she'll go abroad for gender selection treatment to ensure her next child is a girl as the process is not legal in the UK.

"I’ve been honest about the fact that I’d really like a little girl.

"I would regret it if I got to 50 and didn’t have a daughter, and I don’t want to have any regrets, so I’m going to do it."
