DANIELLE Lloyd has revealed she WILL undergo controversial gender selection treatment in America next year so she can finally have a baby girl.

The 34-year-old, who is already mum to four boys, has settled on a clinic in California and will travel there after her wedding to fiancé, electrician Michael O’Neill.

The ex-WAG admitted she’s determined to go through with the procedure despite backlash from angry trolls, who branded her a “selfish, disgusting b****”.

Speaking to the Mail On Sunday, Liverpool-born Danielle said: “I want a girl and if I can pay for it, then that’s OK, I can get one.”

Danielle had three sons, Archie, Harry and George, with former Tottenham Hotspurs midfielder Jamie O’Hara, who she divorced in 2014, and Michael is father to her fourth son 10-month-old Ronnie.

She first revealed plans for the treatment – which is illegal in the UK – in an exclusive interview with The Sun’s Fabulous magazine back in December.

At that point, she said she had found a clinic in Cyprus, where the procedure is legal, that specialises in gender selection.

Danielle said at the time: “I think we’ll end up doing it. I’m thankful for the children I’ve got… I just would quite like to have a girl cos I feel quite lonely in my house. I need someone on my side!

“One of my friends wants to do it as well, so maybe next year we’ll do it together. I don’t want to sound ungrateful cos I know that some people can’t have children and I don’t want to upset people. But I just really want to do this.”

But she was hit by a stream of angry messages, many from women who admit they can’t have children of their own,which she says was like a “bomb going off”.

Speaking about the abuse to the Mail, Danielle said: “I’m very honest and don’t beat around the bush, but I didn’t expect the amount of vitriol.”

Despite the negative comments, Danielle will go ahead with the procedure – which will set her back around £12,000, plus flights and accommodation just for one round.

It will involve her having a number of her eggs harvested and fertilised at the clinic in United States – one of the only countries where it’s legal.

From there, one or two of the female embryos will be re-implanted into the womb and the remainder can be stored for possible use in the future.

Danielle hopes that having a little girl will allow her to have a similar relationship to that of hers with her own mum and also wants her sons to have a sister.

She admits their “family is not yet complete” and partner Michael also wants a little girl.

Danielle adds: “Realistically, 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.”

She has previously defended her decision in an interview with BBC Radio 5 Live, and admitted she’s frustrated that more people don’t own up to having the procedure.


And despite the criticism, she told how she’s also had a lot of  support online, saying: “A lot of people are doing it but they keep it quiet, and that is what is so frustrating for me.”

The Loose Women star recently revealed that she thought she was pregnant, but her swollen belly was actually the result of an ovary condition.

She told OK! Magazine: “We did think I was pregnant, but I have polycystic ovaries and then endometriosis when I’m ovulating, which makes me swell up so I look and feel like I’m pregnant.”
