The 29-year-old television personality - who already has six-year-old son Blakely with her ex Matthew Bates - was "so convinced" she was carrying a little girl due to the horrendous morning sickness she's been battling, so was surprised to learn that she and her boyfriend Ryan Oates are set to welcome a son into the world this year.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "She desperately wanted a baby girl this time and convinced herself it was a girl as her morning sickness was so bad."

The brunette beauty announced she was pregnant with her second child two months ago but admitted the news came as a surprise as she didn't think she could have any more children due to the fact she now suffers with polycystic ovaries.

A spokesperson for Chanelle said at the time: "I'm delighted to confirm that Chanelle Hayes is pregnant with her second child.

"Although the news came as some surprise, Chanelle, her partner Ryan and son Blakely are incredibly excited to welcome the new arrival later this year."

Doctors previously told her she wouldn't be able to fall pregnant naturally until she dropped a few dress sizes because her love of sugary snacks has interfered with her menstrual cycle.

Chanelle was also told she was on the cusp of Type 2 diabetes - a lifelong condition that causes a person's blood sugar level to become too high - and doctors will continue to monitor her waistline and symptoms until she's managed to lose weight.

She said: "They've kind of said if you get any tingling in your limbs or lower limbs and stuff like that. They are keeping an eye on things. They want to do measurements."
