Danielle Lloyd drops a baby bombshell as she prepares to undergo gender selection

The model really, really likes having kids

Danielle Lloyd has spoken out about her plan to have a fifth – and even a sixth child – as she prepares to head abroad for fertility treatment.

Speaking to Closer magazine the former beauty queen, who is mum to four boys, defended her decision to undergo gender selection IVF in order to have her “dream” baby girl.

And dropped a bombshell: she could have TWINS!

“I’d go to Cyprus or the US for the treatment and there’s the option to put in two eggs,” she said.

“I need to talk to [my fiancé] Michael about it properly as twins would be hard work, but obviously I would love it.

“Knowing how fertile I am, the eggs would probably split again and I’d end up with four!”

Her comments come after Danielle revealed she was planning to have the controversial gender selection treatment, which allows you to choose whether you have a girl or a boy.

Danielle, 34, added: “I wouldn’t give up my four healthy boys for the world, but I’ve been desperate to have a girl for so long. It’s my dream and I’m not going to give up. Hopefully it will happen by the end of the year.”

The model had three sons with her ex-husband, footballer Jamie O’Hara, before they divorced in 2014.

In October, Danielle had a fourth son with her fiancé, electrician, Michael O’Neill.

Some people have been critical of her desire to have a ‘designer baby’, as the procedure is illegal in the UK.

However, Danielle defended her choice again in another interview this week with Reveal magazine.

“Where does it end? Do I keep trying and end up with 20 babies? I couldn’t afford that,” she said.

“I’ve got the opportunity and I’m going to investigate. If I do go for the gender selection, it will definitely be my last baby.”

She added that flying abroad to have the treatment would be “nerve-wracking” and insisted it was a decision she’d made after thorough research.

“I’ll have to go through IVF and there’s no guarantees it will work,” she said. “It can be really tough, it’s not an easy treatment for any woman to go through. I won’t be taking it lightly.”

“It’s always been my dream to have a little girl,’ she told the radio presenter. ‘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.”
