Congratulations are in order for the future Mrs O'Neill
If it’s good enough for Beyoncé, it seems it’s good enough for Danielle Lloyd.
The model revealed that she’s expecting a baby with fiancé Michael O’Neill over the weekend, by imitating Bey’s now-famous veiled snap.
Posing on the cover of OK!, Danielle wore blue frilled underwear and a burgundy bra as she cradled her growing baby bump.
As they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Sharing the snap on her Instagram account, Danielle wrote: ‘So it’s official Am expecting a baby. I loved this Beyoncé inspired shoot with @ok_mag #pregnant #baby #excited [sic].’
Speaking to the magazine, the mum-of-three admitted that she and Michael are ‘over the moon’ to be expecting their first child together.
She said: ‘We both wanted a baby so much but Michael probably would have had one sooner.’
It was only after she filmed Channel 5 show In Therapy that she realised she wanted another child.
Danielle continues: ‘After I filmed the In Therapy show I realised what’s important in life, so I decided to stop being selfish and go for it, and I’m so happy I did.’
Revealing she’s due ‘towards the end of the summer’, the ex-WAG admitted that she hasn’t shared the news with ex-husband Jamie O’Hara, as she believes she ‘doesn’t owe him anything’ following their divorce.
Meanwhile, the 33-year-old’s pregnancy has now put a pause on her wedding plans to Michael – at least until after the baby is born.
She explains: ‘Maybe [we’ll do it] in 2018, and we’ll definitely go abroad to get married – something small and intimate.’
One things for sure, there’ll be a new flower girl or page boy on the big day. Congratulations, guys!
