Danielle Lloyd has announced that she has given birth to a baby girl, after using a controversial “Babydust” method of conception.
The model, who is married to husband Michael O’Neill, made the announcement today.
He said OK! magazine: “On Friday we welcomed our beautiful little girl to complete our family. We are in seventh heaven and both mother and baby are doing well. “
The proud mom has four children. Archie, 10, Harry, nine, and George, seven, from her previous marriage to footballer Jamie O’Hara, and son Ronnie, three, with husband Michael.
However, he made no secret of wanting a daughter, speaking openly about his desire for a girl.
He had also previously caused controversy by admitting that he was considering a “gender selection” treatment abroad as the process is illegal in the UK.
The couple announced they were pregnant in May, two years after suffering a miscarriage. In July he said he used the “Babydust method” to have a girlfriend.
Scans later confirmed that he had been successful in his attempts.
What is the Babydust Method?
The Babydust method, created by microbiologist Kathryn Taylor, is controversial but claims you can predetermine your baby’s gender.
The Babydust method states that it is related to luteinizing hormone monitoring.
It requires thorough monitoring of the menstrual cycle and ovulation, on the theory that sex two to three days before ovulation results in a girl, while the closer to ovulation will ensure a boy.
In an interview with Cosmopolitan, creator Taylor claims to have an approximate 87% success rate.
However, she added that the genre is expressive and encourages potential moms to wonder why they want to practice the method.
Before trying the method, Danielle defended her decision to fight for a girl, after being criticized in 2018 for considering gender selection treatment.
Dismissing the claims that a designer child was making, Danielle said, “It has always been my dream to have a baby girl. It’s about having that mix and raising a little girl.
“I know it might not be ‘feminine’ – it probably won’t be with 4 siblings – but it’s just about having a little mini-me almost.”
