Michelle Heaton has revealed that she and her husband Hugh Hanley are expecting a baby boy.
Heaton and Hanley are already parents to 22-month-old daughter Faith and the popstar has revealed she feels "so lucky" to be expecting again as she will be unable to have any more kids after she undergoes surgery to remove her ovaries six months after giving birth next March.
Heaton is having the radical surgery as she was diagnosed with the mutated BRCA2 gene, which gives carriers a high chance of developing cancer.
Speaking to the latest edition of OK! Magazine Heaton said: ''I'm over the moon to be having a boy - which me and Hugh secretly wanted - but if I was going to have a third child there would be another two years of waiting before I could have my ovaries removed and that delay could eventually take me away from my children, so we won't be having any more. We've been lucky so far let's not try to be too greedy.''
Speaking about the differences of having a boy 34-year-old Heaton said: "[Am I worried?] A little bit. I'm a bit scared of the willy - I'm not sure what to do! Everyone in Liberty X has boys and Kelli [Young] has twin boys so she was faced with two willies that weed in a very awkward manner! I'm sure I'll get used to it though.''
