Danielle announced in July that her dreams had come true when she learnt she was expecting a baby girl (opens in new tab).

When she announced her pregnancy earlier this year, she said she was hoping for a little girl and had contemplated gender selection (opens in new tab) before deciding to have her baby naturally.

The treatment allows parents to pick the gender of their baby using IVF (opens in new tab) genetic screening.

The former Celebrity Big Brother star admitted to having "bad anxiety" leading up to her gender reveal and crying when she learned she was expecting her first daughter.

Danielle and her husband Michael already have a four-year-old son, Ronnie. Danielle also shares three other sons: Archie, 11, Harry, 10, and George, eight, with her ex-husband Jamie O'Hara,

The former Miss Great Britain winner had hoped to name her new baby Rose, and she was reportedly "gutted" when Stacey Solomon picked the same name (opens in new tab) for her daughter, leaving her questioning if she wanted to use the popular baby name (opens in new tab) too.

Rose is still a contender for the new baby's name, she told OK!, but they haven't decided

"Michael wants Rose involved in the name somewhere, but we don’t know."

Danielle continued, "We’ve got a shortlist of names and we’ll decide once we see her. When I looked at Ronnie, I just knew he was a Ronnie."

Family and friends flocked to social media to wish Danielle and her baby well, with pregnant Marnie Simpson (opens in new tab) penning, "Congratulations !!!," followed by a string of love hearts.

Billie Faiers gushed, "Congratulations to you all."
