Danielle Lloyd has proudly shown off her 16 week pregnancy bump after announcing she’s expecting her fifth child.

The 37 year old took to Instagram Stories to share the image of her blossoming bump with her 540,000 followers. Posing in her Calvin Klein underwear, Danielle captioned the shot: “Week 16,” alongside an image of an avocado.

Celebrity Big Brother star and model Danielle announced last month that she is pregnant with her fifth child, and second with husband Michael O'Neill. She and Michael share three year old son Ronnie, while Danielle is also mum to sons Archie, 10, Harry, nine, and George, seven, with ex-husband Jamie O’Hara.

She told Closer magazine: "We were both just over the moon. Please let it be a girl!"

She continued: "Michael is really hoping for a girl and the boys are desperate too – they're convinced it's a little sister.

"If it is, that little girl is going to have an army of protective big brothers throughout her life!

"I can't wait to become a family of seven. I know there's a risk it'll be another boy though – having five boys would be totally mad!

"But, of course, the main thing I want is for the baby to be healthy. And if it's not a girl – we'll just try again after!"

Danielle has previously spoken about her plans to travel abroad to have gender selection but due to travel restrictions in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, has decided to try for her baby naturally instead.

Last November, Danielle candidly opened up to new magazine about how her struggle to fall pregnant left her with severe anxiety and having panic attacks following a miscarriage in September 2019.

Danielle began to think her endometriosis – a condition which can affect a woman’s fertility, as well as bring on depression and anxiety – was behind the tragic loss.

She then discovered she needed a laparoscopy operation before she could begin trying for a baby again, however the results showed no reason for Danielle's miscarriage.

She told new : "I felt disheartened. It was bittersweet because obviously nobody wants something to be wrong with them, but I'd got it into my head that it was going to get sorted and then I could think about having a baby.

"I blamed the endometriosis for my miscarriage and thought when that went, everything else would be OK. To then get the news that there's nothing there, I thought, 'What is wrong then? Why can I not get pregnant? Am I just getting older?'

"At the beginning of lockdown I felt like I was coping OK. But towards the end, I was really struggling. My anxiety was through the roof and I was worrying constantly. I would have panic attacks. I'd be in the car and Michael would say, 'Are you OK?' And I'd reply, 'I can't breathe.' It's been a really, really hard time."
