Girls Aloud's Kimberley Walsh has confirmed that her third baby, due later this year, is a boy.
Sitting down with OK! magazine, the singer spoke of her feelings when she initially found out the news.
"My sister [Sally] has three boys and she's pregnant, she's a month behind me with her fourth boy, so in my head I could only imagine having another boy," she said. "It would have been a shock having it the other way around!
"It felt right that it was a boy, because we're going to have seven between us," she continued. "It's a nice surprise that we're basically going to have our own football team."
After deciding not to know the sex of her first two children, Bobby and Cole, before their birth, Walsh went on to add it was "nice to prepare a bit" this time around.
"With the other boys, we wanted it to be a surprise and something to look forward to, and to keep you guessing," she explained.
"But I think there's been enough surprises this year. So it would be nice to prepare a bit before they come and also the kids kept asking me every day.
"The scan was nice, it's weird when you know they're about to tell you, as I've never found out before.
"Justin [Scott, her husband] was able to be there and we were just excited to tell the boys. They'd been saying how much they wanted a boy and another member of their crew," Walsh added.
"We waited until our [photo]shoot to tell them, as we thought it would be more of an event. It was hard to keep it under wraps."
