Danielle Lloyd has once again defended her decision to travel abroad for controversial gender selection treatment in a bid for a “designer baby”.
The model appeared on The Emma Barnett Show on BBC Radio 5 live to talk to about the procedure and her determination to have a baby girl.
Danielle is already a mother of four sons – the fourth born just last year – and claims she would love to have a fifth, but only if she could be sure it was a girl.
She had three sons with her ex-husband, footballer Jamie O’Hara, and welcomed her fourth, with fiancé Michael O’Neill in October.
Speaking to Emma Barnett she opened up about her desire for a little girl.
“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.”
The controversial procedure is illegal in the UK and Danielle plans to travel to Cyprus to undergo treatment.
“I could continue to have babies and hope I’d have a girl but I want to be realistic,” Danielle said. “I’ve got four boys at the moment and they are a handful.”
The former Miss Great Britain claimed that she’s not the only one undergoing the treatment, she’s jus the only one owning up to it.
“A lot of people are doing it but they keep it quiet, and that is what is so frustrating for me,” she said.
She also opened up on the show about her strange tip for keeping postnatal depression at bay.
She confessed to having her placenta made into pills after her youngest son Ronnie’s birth, which she claims prevented the PND she suffered with her previous three children.
“My placenta tablets really did give me a boost. Before I’ve had PND and I never got it (this time) and I believe it’s definitely down to the tablets.”
Danielle’s decision to seek gender selection treatment has been cause for much debate recently, with Loose Women running a poll in December to ask whether a parent should be able to choose the gender of their child.
84% of respondents said no.
