Pregnant Josie Gibson discovers she’s expecting a baby boy

Congratulations, Josie!

Pregnant Josie Gibson has been told on live TV that she’s expecting a little boy!

The former Big Brother champion appeared on ITV’s Loose Women on Tuesday to undergo a scan to discover the sex of her unborn child, after a previous scan proved inconclusive due to the position of her baby.

Josie announced in May that she’s six months pregnant with her first child.

On Loose Women, the reality star initially suggested the baby could be a girl, as she has a small bump, and the Old Wives’ tales she tried all said girl.

However, she personally thought it was a boy.

And she was right!

Josie, who said she genuinely didn’t mind either way, was given a scan on live TV, while Loose Women panellist Coleen Nolan stood next to her holding a bunch of blue balloons and a bunch of pink balloons.

When it was confirmed Josie’s expecting a boy, Coleen handed her the blue bunch.

A thrilled Josie shrieked with delight, saying: “It’s a boy! I knew it! My partner will be over the moon! I feel lovely!”

“I can’t believe I have a little boy in the oven,” she added.

Josie revealed she has two “old-fashioned” names in mind: Diggory and Jack.

Coleen seemed unsure about Diggory, saying: “I’m not sure he’ll thank you for that one.”

During an earlier interview with the panel, Josie also opened up about her partner Terry, who prefers to remain out of the limelight.

She began dating property developer Terry, 48, last year but has declined to reveal his surname or even show his picture on social media as he wants to maintain his privacy.

“I’ve known him since I was about 14,” she said. “He’s a friend of the family. You can’t ever get bored with him! He’s brilliant.”

Josie agreed with the panel that it was lovely to be a man she could trust, who was a friend of her family.

“That’s been the most difficult thing, finding one I can actually trust,” she said.

“When you’ve been stabbed in the back you’re so careful. It’s so lovely we know each other.

“I didn’t look at him like that at first, don’t get me wrong, but he did grow on me! He had to plaster the house and weed the garden and then I thought he was a keeper!”

Josie added: “I said to my partner the other week, ‘I’ve never felt richer’. He said to me, ‘What do you mean? You’re not as rich as you used to be’. I said, ‘I know that love, but when you wake up in the morning and you’re excited to be alive that is pure wealth, proper, proper wealth’.”
