The reality TV star went on national radio and defended her decision to chose the sex of her next baby.
In an interview with Emma Barnett on BBC Radio 5 live, the mum of four said she’s desperate to add a little girl to her brood and will stick by her plan to gender select her next baby.
Despite having her fourth son Ronnie just sixteen weeks ago, and receiving criticism after announcing her plans, Danielle explained that it has been her “dream” to have a daughter for some time.

“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,” she said.
The questionable process is banned in the UK but is available in Cyprus, where she intends to go.
And asked why she wanted to go ahead with it, she added: “I could continue to have babies and hope I’d have a girl but I want to be realistic. I’ve got four boys at the moment and they are a handful.”

Danielle – who is rumoured to be walking down the aisle in a matter of weeks with partner Michael O’Neill – said she’s aware of other celebrities who have opted for gender selection and is frustrated that they won’t admit it.
She also insisted she’s received a lot of support from her fans on social media – as well as criticism.
“A lot of people are doing it but they keep it quiet, and that is what is so frustrating for me.”

Danielle took tablets made out of her placenta after having baby Ronnie late last year, and is adamant that they stopped her getting post natal depression which she suffered with in the past.
“I ate it in tablet form. 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 was talking on The Emma Barnett Show, which is broadcast on BBC Radio 5 live Monday to Thursday from 10 am until one pm.
